For some time now, Mondo—the incredibly awesome movie-poster producing arm of the Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse theater chain—has been holding these Mondo Mystery Movie events. Perhaps you’ve heard of ‘em? Ticketholders throw down a wad of cash, get a ticket, and then show up to a theater without any idea what movie they’ve purchased a ticket to. In addition to the screening, those in attendance also receive an extremely limited edition Mondo print, a visit from someone associated with the movie, and…well– as we all know– anything can happen at an event being thrown by the Drafthouse. Last night, the latest Mondo Mystery Movie (hyped as “one of the biggest events in Drafthouse history”) took place here in Austin, TX. What movie screened? Who showed up? What did the print look like? Find out after the jump, folks.
Mondo recently launched a new “Director’s Series” line of posters where almost every film in a director’s body of work would get its own specially-designed, gorgeous Mondo poster. The series kicked off with posters for Guillermo del Toro (and we’re still waiting to see what Mondo has in store for Pan’s Labyrinth, Cronos, and The Devil’s Backbone) and followed up with Olly Moss posters for Duncan Jones’ Moon and Source Code. Now director Zack Snyder is getting the business and the series begins with his newest film, Sucker Punch. The poster was designed by Ken Taylor and comes in a regular edition and a variant. The regular edition is limited to 285 prints and costs $45 while the orange variant is limited to 105 prints and costs $70. Both posters measure 24″x36″ and are hand-numbered. The posters go on sale tomorrow at a random time so be sure you’re following @MondoNews for the announcement.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Mondo will also be producing posters for Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, and Legend of the Guardians. I wish them the best of luck in selling the Guardians posters.
