“Well…shit.” That’s the only reaction I can muster to the announcement that Mondo will be whipping up posters for Pixar’s films. I can only say “Well…shit,” because I know how fast these posters are going to sell out (unless they do one for Cars 2; then it should be easier than usual to get one). I’ll just sit at my computer crying angry tears because I couldn’t get the poster for WALL-E or Finding Nemo or Up. Damn you, Mondo. Can’t you do posters for movies I don’t care about? Like a director’s series for Shawn Levy? C’mon, a Cheaper by the Dozen poster? That would be…a thing. Oh, and this Pixar news comes on the heels of Mondo’s announcement that they’re also doing a series for Jurassic Park.
Anyway, the first poster in the Pixar series will be a Monsters, Inc. screenprint by Mondo fave Tom Whalen. It, unsurprisingly, looks terrific. The print measures 18″x24″, costs $45, and is limited to an edition of 365. The poster goes on sale tomorrow, September 2nd at a random time. Be sure you’re following @MondoNews for the official announcement. Hit the jump to check out the full poster and then try not to curse too loudly.
