Welcome to Jurassic Park - Mondo Style!
They've done it again. Every single time we find an e-mail in our inbox from the good folks over at Mondo Tees, we end up opening it, staring at the staggeringly incredible artwork that appears before us, and then ruining the shirts we are wearing because of all of the drool. Sigh.
Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is pleased to announce their new licensed poster series for Jurassic Park. The first breathtaking poster features imagery from the iconic final shot of a triumphant Tyrannosaurus Rex from artist Aaron Horkey.
Artist: Aaron Horkey
Size: 21" x 39"
The poster and series were unveiled last evening at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar as a Mondo Mystery Movie, a popular programming series that keeps the film and poster a secret right up until the film rolls. Jurassic Park is the second Mondo Mystery Movie, which sold out in under a minute several weeks ago. The film was shown in a glorious 35mm print and was attended by legendary FX artist Phil Tippett.
For a generation of moviegoers seeing Jurassic Park in theaters was a momentous event and one that engrained clear memories of seeing dinosaurs walk the Earth once again. "'Jurassic Park' is one of Mondo’s biggest series yet. Along with Star Wars and Star Trek, we’ve seen an equal level of excitement amongst artists to take on this seminal film. We’re incredibly excited about Aaron Horkey’s poster and what’s to come," said Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael.
The Jurassic Park poster series will continue with world-renowned artists rendering their vision of the classic film. A second print is scheduled to be available for online sale timed to the release of the Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy on Blu-ray on October 25, 2011.
The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy arrives on Blu-ray for the first time ever with the groundbreaking films remastered in flawless high definition and hours of bonus features, including an all-new, six-part documentary called Return to Jurassic Park.
Keep it locked to @MondoNews for an on sale announcement. Good luck! We know they're gonna go FAST!
