Once in a blue moon, Mondo has this ingenious idea of making their exclusive posters available for everyone. As you can imagine, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for any fan of their artwork, who doesn’t have the time, isn’t around a computer at the time of release, or has a slow internet connection, as the ability to purchase one of them. Sure they may not be as exclusive as their original releases, but they are still fine pieces of artwork to hang on your wall. Last year, Mondo released Olly Moss‘ minimalist poster for The Dark Knight Rises for an entire day; now they will do it again for Man of Steel.
Martin Ansin‘s piece will be a part of that release. His piece will go on sale for an entire 72 hours, and will be available for purchase Thursday night at midnight, ample time for anyone who wants one of them. There is also another piece by Ken Taylor, seen in the header image above. His piece will not be a part of that day in a half release; instead, it will be released as any other Mondo poster would. Both pieces will have variant versions. Hit the jump for specs for each poster.
Almost every movie poster aficionado knows that Mondo is the definitive source for original and one-of-a-kind art pieces. Many have had the good fortune of purchasing these pieces to hang on their walls, and those lucky enough to live in Austin, Texas have been treated to free posters at the Alamo Drafthouse. They also honor their artists by holding art galleries. So to commemorate the most terrifying season for film, Mondo is holding a very special Horror-themed art gallery.
Artists like Laurent Durieux, Francesco Francavila, and Ken Taylor will be on hand to provide some of their interpretations of the iconic Universal Horror monsters. Check out all the specs and pricing here below, along with images of some of the posters.
At some time today, Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique, will be offering up a new limited edition Thor print, based on the upcoming Marvel movie hitting theaters tomorrow.
