The fine folks over at Mondo commissioned some sweet posters for films playing at this year’s SXSW Film Festival. If you attended SXSW, you had a chance to buy these great posters. If, however, you were like me, you were at home cursing the heavens and crying into a pint of Häagen-Dazs. But now for poor folks like you and me, Mondo is putting these posters up for sale online.
Starting at a random time tomorrow, Mondo will be selling their SXSW posters for Hobo with a Shotgun, The FP, Source Code, Moon, Hesher, and Paul. Hit the jump for pricing and details on the posters. Be sure you’re following @MondoNews for the official announcement of when the posters go on sale.
Greg Mottola’s Paul is set to premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival and the fine folks at Mondo are giving it some sweet poster lovin’. Created by artist Tom Whalen, the poster will be available to purchase at SXSW. Details are coming soon, but we wanted to bring you this greatness now. Check back later for pricing, size, and other facts on this sweet poster. [Update: Universal has sent us a press release stating that the poster is limited to an edition of 225].
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Paul stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kristin Wiig, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, and Seth Rogen. The film plays at SXSW on March 13th and opens nationwide on March 18th.
We have three awesome new posters to show you today from Mondo, the boutique shop of the famous Alamo Drafthouse. First up is Olly Moss and Jon Contino’s fantastic commemorative poster for Chris Morris’ terrorist comedy Four Lions, which is the first film to be distributed under the Drafthouse’s new distribution arm, Drafthouse Films. The design of the poster was inspired by England’s soccer flag (the film is set in Sheffield, England). Four Lions opens in limited release on November 5th.
There’s also the latest posters in Mondo’s ongoing Star Trek and Star Wars series. Both posters were done by artist Tom Whalen. The Trek poster pays tribute to the episode “Journey to Babel” while the Star Wars poster is the first in the Mondo series to show some love to Mr. Jabba the Hutt. The posters go on sale tomorrow at an unspecified time (follow @MondoNews on Twitter for the announcement of when they’ll be available). Each print will be limited to an edition of less than 300 and will probably sell out in under ten minutes. Hit the jump to check out all of the posters.
