Mondo Unveils Artwork for JURASSIC PARK Soundtrack Re-Release

by     Posted 233 days ago


Though traditional scores have now become a more rare in studio tentpoles as of late (quick, what’s the theme for The Amazing Spider-Man? Transformers?), the soundtracks to some of the biggest films in history have remained classics.  The good folks at Mondo are preparing a re-release of one of the best pieces from composer John Williams’ vast (and impressive) library, and today they’ve unveiled the artwork for the soundtrack: Jurassic Park.  It’s an iconic piece of film music, and Mondo commissioned two separate pieces of artwork packaging, one from JC Richard and a limited edition from Dan McCarthy.  The vinyls don’t go on sale until June 11th, but you can take a look at the artwork right now.

Check out Prints from Mike Mitchell’s Upcoming Marvel Show at Mondo

by     Posted 246 days ago


Mondo has announced “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo”, which is a gallery of Marvel character portraits by artist Mike Mitchell.  “My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up. Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath,” said Mitchell in a press release.  “This has easily been the most ambitious project I’ve ever taken on, and it’s due in part to my love for their universe.”

Hit the jump to check out Mitchell’s Marvel prints for Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Black Cat, Bullseye, Luke Cage, and Mysterio.  The show will run from April 25th to May 17th.

If you’re at SXSW or in the Austin area, I strongly suggest heading over to the Mondo Gallery at 4115 Guadalupe St.  That’s because Martin Ansin and Kevin Tong are opening their show tonight and it focuses on sci-fi, fantasy, and horror with a bent towards emulating classic movie posters.  From what I’ve seen, it’s going to be a great show and I’m sure fans are going to love it.

With the doors to the gallery about to open, Mondo has provided us with a great exclusive: Ansin’s posters for director Paul Verhoeven’s Robocop.  As usual, Ansin has done a great job bringing the classic movie to life and Mondo is offering a regular and variant version of the poster.  Hit the jump to check them out.

Over 60 Pictures from Laurent Durieux’s Mondo Gallery Show in Austin

This month’s Mondo gallery showing of Laurent Durieux’s work was super popular with over 100 people waiting in line in the cold 37 degree weather, some of whom had been waiting since around 9:00 in the morning.  Laurent’s work has always captivated me since he seems to bring in such an enormous amount of depth while retaining a large amount of detail.  You really feel like you’re looking into the window of the world of the film when you look at one of his pieces of art.

My  favorites of the show were the original colored pencil pieces.  They had such imagination and depth in them, it was hard realizing that they were such tiny pieces of art that were barely the size of my hand.  At the same time, I really enjoyed the Back to the Future 1 and 2 pieces with their retro sci-fi tones.  I was disappointed when I did not see the third piece for the third film.  Hopefully someday Laurent will complete the trilogy.  Hit the jump to check out over 60 pictures from the show.

Laurent Durieux is starting to piss me off.  I was all set to limit how much I wanted to spend at his first solo show at the Mondo gallery in Austin, but everything I’ve seen has been spectacular.  I’m starting to worry that my bank account is going to take a serious hit when the gallery opens tomorrow night.  If you’re not aware, Durieux has been creating amazing screenprints over the past few years, but his recent work has been on another level.

Thanks to our friends at Mondo, we’re happy to be able to premiere a few of Durieux’s screenprints that will go onsale tomorrow night.  We’ve got his posters for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, Vertigo (regular and variant) and Rear Window (regular and variant).  Hit the jump for the images and info.

by     Posted 325 days ago


Two new Mondo posters are dipping into some 20th century icons for inspiration.  First up is a nostalgic version of the animated feature Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.  Originally released in 1993, the film finds Batman wrongly accused of a series of mob murders.  This new poster shows him facing off against the vigilante assassin behind it all.  The second Mondo poster takes inspiration from David Fincher’s 1999 film, Fight Club.  The first rule of Fight Club is … well, you know, so you’ll just have to hit the jump to take a look at the upcoming Mondo posters.

Mondo Unveils Posters for WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and BRICK by Ken Taylor and Matt Taylor

by     Posted 337 days ago


Mondo has a habit of commissioning great posters for older films that oftentimes eclipse the official artwork that was released when the movies opened in theaters, and today’s pair of Mondo unveilings sure come close to doing just that.  Tomorrow at some random time, Mondo will be putting Ken Taylor‘s Where the Wild Things Are and Matt Taylor‘s Brick on sale for the general public.  The Mondo folks have made the artwork available today so fans can get a peek at what they might be able to purchase (if they have lightening fast reflexes, that is), and both posters are pretty stellar.  Hit the jump to take a look at the prints, and as always, follow Mondo on Twitter for the onsale announcement sometime tomorrow.

by     Posted 350 days ago


A new pair of Mondo posters inspired by Desmond Davis’ 1981 fantasy epic Clash of the Titans is scheduled to drop some time tomorrow.  Even if you’re not a rabid poster fanatic, these two are pretty cool, especially since they bring the famous creature creations of the late, great Ray Harryhausen to life in vivid detail.  Artists Francesco Francavilla and Dave Rapoza are the contributors this time around, and while I certainly have my favorite, they’re both worth a look.  Hit the jump to check them out.

by     Posted 1 year, 1 day ago


Last weekend, Mondo returned to Los Angeles for another highly anticipated Mystery Movie.  You may recall when we interviewed Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael at SDCC, he mentioned they were finally going to put on an event that was years in the making.  The moment tickets went on sale the rumor mill went into overdrive guessing just about every major movie and possible scenario, and while there was just one movie that was not only the most predicted, but the most coveted.  That movie was Die Hard.  Well, Mondo did not disappoint and if you hit the jump you can check out images from the event and the poster that everyone went home with.
