Mondo Starts New Poster Series for Pixar; Will Kick Off with Tom Whalen’s Print for MONSTERS, INC.

“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.
