If you visit the site quite frequently, you’re probably aware of the awesomeness that is Mondo. The collectible art boutique arm of the Alamo Drafthouse is responsible for some of the coolest movie posters on the planet, and they’re gearing up to release five Planet of the Apes prints in collaboration with Sideshow Collectibles. The posters were created to commemorate the Alamo Drafthouse “Day of the Apes” event last May, in which all five Apes films were screened as a marathon on glorious 35mm. The prints have debuted on five different sites today, and we’re happy to exclusively bring you Mondo’s poster for the fifth and final entry in the original Apes franchise, Battle for the Planet of the Apes.
Hit the jump to see the fantastic exclusive poster, check out the other prints, and to find out how these lovely prints can be yours.
All prints are 24” x 36” and will be available as a set on January 26th (tomorrow) for $230. If you’re lucky and are able to nab yourself one of these fine sets, you’ll also receive an exclusive print “Alamo Drafthouse Wants You to Go Ape!” This lithograph is a variation of the 20th Century Fox poster created for the 1973 re-release of all five films in theaters, with the artwork resembling Uncle Sam. The “Go Ape!” lithograph is only available with the full set.
After the sets go on sale on January 26th, any remaining individual prints will go on sale January 27th. As always, follow @MondoNews for on sale announcements.
Here’s the print for Battle for the Planet of the Apes, by artist Florian Bertmer, followed by the “Go Ape!” print:
