I’ve got a lot of love for Mondo, but I’m a bit disheartened at how they do posters for new releases. They’ve gotten in the habit of releasing a new poster the day the film is released, and I’m assuming the movie studios have a heavy hand in forcing that drop date. But unless you go see a special late screening the night before, you’re chancing the purchase of a poster for a movie you may not end up liking. Or, in the case of this new Mondo poster for The World’s End, you can trust critics (myself included) and assume that Edgar Wright‘s latest film is great. It’s a good-looking poster with artist Kevin Tong almost doing a riff on Martin Ansin, and is definitely worth owning if you’re a fan of the movie. And if you think you’ll be a fan of the movie, you should roll the dice and see if you can get one when it’s released tomorrow at a random time. Follow @MondoNews for the on-sale announcement.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. The World’s End opens tomorrow, and you should see it.
Here’s the official synopsis for The World’s End:
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
