Earlier this year, when it was announced that Mondo had acquired the rights for Lord of the Rings, fans of the art house and J.R.R. Tolkien surmised that there would be a poster for released in conjunction with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, opening in theaters this Friday. Well the wait is over, and with the film hitting theaters in less than two days, Mondo has unveiled Olly Mossâ€™ vision of The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Check out both â€“ yes there are two â€“ versions of the poster below.
So how do you get this â€œpreciousâ€ poster in your hands? Well like most of the previous Mondo releases, you have to follow Mondo on Twitter to find out when the poster goes on sale. Remember Mondo could post the poster on sale at any time.
Olly Mossâ€™ latest creations are both sized at 15â€ x 36â€. The regular green edition of 580 will be $50, while the variant orange edition of 285 will be $90.
Getting your hands on an exclusive poster from Mondo is just as hard as throwing the one ring to rule them all down the fires of Mount Doom. Why do I say this? Well the journey to getting a poster is just as tough as it is to get to Mount Doom. You have to get on the site, make sure you fill out the correct information, and then click check out. Basically one wrong move spells the end for you. Not only that, but you are competing against everyone who also wants to get their hands on this poster. For the most part I cannot make it past the checkout line because by the time I do, everything is sold out.
Best of luck to anyone trying to get the posters.
