Last weekend, the Mondo crew headed to Houston, Texas for a very special screening of Kinji Fukasaku’s 2000 masterpiece, Battle Royale. The screening (which initially seemed to be the latest Mondo Mystery Movie, but…er, wasn’t) was apparently quite the success: everyone we spoke with who attended had a grand old time, and all involved seemed very happy with the Bryan Lee O’Malley/Kevin Tong screenprint that resulted from the event. But what about everyone else, all the people who couldn’t be in Houston for Mondo’s latest screening/poster party? Good news awaits 425 of those people after the jump!
Short and sweet, people! That’s how we’re doing this one. Behold, the print that’s going on sale tomorrow via the good folks at Mondo:
- Battle Royale by Bryan Lee O’Malley and Kevin Tong
- Metallic Inks
- $50 regular edition of 425
Pretty snazzy poster, no? If you’re wondering: the versions that were handed out during Mondo’s Battle Royale screening in Houston last week were actually the variant editions of the same print. I haven’t been paying attention to whether or not those are in high demand at the moment, but it seems like a safe bet that they would be: after all, nothing Mondo’s released so far this year has gone unsold. Just for comparison’s sake, here’s what that one looked like:
Good luck to all who are going after these (and to anyone who’s angling for whatever’s dropping Sunday night)!
