Artist Olly Moss has created two gorgeous posters for Duncan Jones’ Moon and the director’s upcoming film Source Code. The two posters are part of Mondo’s new “Director’s Series”. The Source Code poster is so much better than the official one, which makes the movie look like it’s about a man who’s being attacked by iPads.
Both posters measure 18″x24″ and cost $35 each. The Moon poster is limited to an edition of 250 while the Source Code poster is limited to an edition of 200. Hit the jump to check out both of these beauties along with a statement on Duncan Jones about having his work added to Mondo’s Director Series. Be sure you’re following @MondoNews for the sale date announcement. Source Code will make its world premiere on March 11th at the SXSW Film Festival. It opens nationwide on April 1st.
Source Code is not about a man being attacked by iPads. Here’s the official synopsis:
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he’s ever known, he learns he’s part of a government experiment called the “Source Code,” a program that enables him to cross over into another man’s identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack.
Filled with mind-bending twists and heart-pounding suspense, Source Code is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) also starring Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye, Due Date), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed), and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, Syriana).
Here’s what Jones had to say about the posters:
“I’ve been a huge fan of Mr. Moss since I first saw his mock game manual for Half Life what feels like an age ago. I’ve been desperate to own one of his pieces ever since. Getting that piece to be based on my films is even better!”
