It wouldn't be a major movie launch without an accompanying Mondo poster (or two). Artists Ken Taylor and Martin Ansin are responsible for the latest pair of high-quality wall art commemorating "Man of Steel," and their striking prints will go on sale tomorrow at some random time via the Mondo site.

After the jump, feast your eyes on these limited edition prints and maybe you'll be one of the few hundred buyers lucky enough to snag one. Read More...


"TRON: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinki's next big budget sci-fi film "Oblivion" gets the Mondo treatment in this elegant poster from illustrator Killian Eng.

Check out the full-sized image after the jump.



If you were thinking about picking up the soundtrack to "Oblivion," hold off before you head to iTunes or your favorite digital music service: Mondo has found a reason for you to pick up a physical copy of the soundtrack thanks to a limited edition LP featuring the work of composers Anthony Gonzalez of M83 and Joseph Trapanese.

The Tom Cruise feature is getting a deluxe, 2X LP featuring the 17-track score from t-shirt and poster company Mondo, and we think you might want to pick it up.

Fresh off of their series of Oscar-themed posters, Mondo has announced that they've teamed up with HBO for a gallery event featuring art inspired by "Game of Thrones." Plus, a new series of posters based on the series is on the way.

Ignore me: I'm just sour because I haven't seen most of this year's Oscar nominees. But I have seen these new posters from Mondo and they're pretty dope.


With "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" out this week, Mondo plans to release a pair of Olly Moss-designed posters celebrating Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Hit the jump for some fine arts and details on how you might be able to snag one when they're available tomorrow.


Mondo artist Ken Taylor supplied the gatefold image for the upcoming Blu-ray collection which will celebrate 20 years of Quentin Tarantino doing his thing on the big screen. Love him or hate him, Tarantino's had an impact, and Taylor's art celebrates the sprawling filmography of the "Reservoir Dogs" and "Django Unchained" director.

Tarantino's something of a fan with the Drafthouse/Mondo folks, a regular at the Austin Drafthouse theater where he had one of his early "Inglourious Basterds" screenings back in '09.


You didn't think Halloween would roll around without Mondo finding something new for you to put on your walls.

Mondo has announced a collection of posters based on Universal Pictures' classic stable of monsters featuring art by a trio of Mondo regulars which will be hosted at a show Mondo Gallery show which runs from October 19 through November 10.


Poster and t-shirt house Mondo is in the business of reminding that movie posters remain an art form. For every half dozen cheapie 'shopped "floating head" poster inflicted upon the multiplex set, Mondo has work by artists like Jock, Olly Moss, or Daniel Danger.

They feel elaborately designed, these art pieces honoring classic and modern films (and occasionally TV). Without having to work towards the lowest common denominator, star-centric image, the artists commissioned are able to strike the perfect balance between honoring the most familiar elements of the source material (consider the period appropriate font used in Francesco Francavilla's Creature From the Black Lagoon poster below) while still being able to create something playful that extends the spirit of the original work (of course the poster for Adventure Time should be a yearbook photo).

And have you seen these things? They have a texture to them that the usual glossy one-sheet doesn't. Part of that is the process: according to Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael, because of the printing method Mondo uses to create its limited run of posters, each one is unique (albeit in the most barely perceptible ways).

But I'll let Ishmael himself talk about the company—its roots and some of the dream projects on the horizon for the Austin-based company.



Mondo brings another ultra limited edition poster to SDCC, this one and its variant based on the Miyazaki eco-action fantasy.

This trio of posters based on HBO's "Game of Thrones" are just the tip of the iceberg for Mondo offerings at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

If you haven’t heard of Mondo, the art print (and more) division of the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, then it’s time to geek out about them. Mondo had the bright idea to pair gig poster art and design to movie posters, and the result has been a steady stream of impressive, limited-run art that is coveted by geeks around the globe. These days, Mondo prints are announced on Twitter, and sell out within seconds, just like their recent Avengers posters have been doing.

But how did it all get started? We spoke to Creative Director Justin Ishmael at Mondo’s brand-new gallery in Austin during SXSW this year, and he talks about all things Mondo from the beginning, to the turning point, and straight up to right now. Read on for the full interview, and then browse through the Mondo Archive where we guarantee you’ll find something to drool over. Read More...
