That’s it, I’m moving to Austin.
October 21, 2015 is almost here, bringing us closer the destination date Marty McFly traveled to in 1985's Back to the Future II. So far a lot from the Robert Zemeckis classic has already come true. We have hover boards (kinda), we’re obsessed with 3D and sequels, we got a trailer for Jaws 19, and Pepsi is releasing futuristic bottles. But there’s still one thing we’ve never had: the original Back to the Future trilogy film scores available in a vinyl box set. Thanks to Mondo, all of our futuristic dreams will now come true.
The company behind the most in-demand nerd art on the internet has hosted a lot of very cool shows in their Austin, Texas art gallery, but their latest is bound to give you a nice punch in the nostalgia. As the name implies, “When Dinosaurs Rule the Earth” is all about Jurassic Park and it features art that runs the gamut from direct recreations of iconic scenes to abstract pieces that use Steven Spielberg’s classic as a basic jumping-off point. And yes, you can peruse the complete gallery below!
Mondo, those purveyors of the coolest geek art on the planet, are teaming up with Universal for a new gallery show that will celebrate all things Jurassic Park. Yes, the timing of this show, so close to the release of Jurassic World, isn’t an accident. And yes, you should be excited for what Mondo has been cooking up. When you’re done humming John Williams’ iconic theme music, prepare yourself for an exclusive look at two very cool pieces from the show, as well as an interview with Mondo’s CEO and creative director, Justin Ishmael.
Two Christmases ago marked the 20th anniversary Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, a film that’s arguably its creators’ most perfect expression of their enduringly influential animated vision of DC Comics...
Batman means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. The best thing about Mondo's new gallery show centered around DC Comics' Dark Knight is that it knows this. If your Batman is the violent, grizzled version Frank Miller drew and wrote, you're covered. If your Batman is the level-headed martial artist and detective of the Christopher Nolan films, you'll find plenty to love. You love Bathound? This gallery show has Bathound. Few characters have had the longevity of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego and this show is evidence of why. There's a reason this show is a "75th Anniversary" tribute -- Batman is whatever his fans want him to be.
When Mondo, the merchandising arm of the celebrated Alamo Drafthouse theater known for selling super-cool movie posters, announced that it would host a convention in Austin, Texas, September 20-21, it...
You didn't think Batman could turn 75 without getting a little love from the people at Mondo, did you? The purveyors of pop culture-inspired boutique art are going to celebrate 75 years of Batman in a big way, and they're kicking things off this week at Comic-Con 2014 with an exclusive Joker poster.
It was only a matter of time before Mondo, the current king of the movie poster world, unveiled a 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' print. It may be a week late since the film is already in theaters and already making a ton of money, but here it is! Interestingly, it may ultimately appeal more to fans of the X-Men comics than fans of the new movie.
It's hard to imagine 'Jurassic Park' without John Williams' iconic score, and thanks to the brilliant minds over at Mondo, you'll have a chance to own that score once again when the boutique re-releases it -- on vinyl! -- in June. Hold onto your butts because this is one seriously awesome collector's item.
