If you have been living under a rock then this next bit of info is for you.  Mondo is a division of the Alamo Drafthouse championed for bringing art back to movie poster design. Utilizing the talents of world-class artists and designers, Mondo produces limited edition, screen printed posters based on all things film, television and comic properties including Star Wars, The Avengers, DC Comics, Back to the Future and Universal Monsters. In addition to stunning artwork for beloved and future classics, Mondo also releases time-honoured and contemporary movie soundtracks on vinyl, such as Drive, as well as VHS re-issues. Based in Austin, TX, Mondo operates out of a permanent gallery space hosting regular exhibitions featuring a blend of breathtaking original artwork and limited edition screen prints. Having worked with filmmakers such as Guillermo del Toro, Wes Craven, Zack Snyder and Duncan Jones, Mondo has also partnered with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to further archive and preserve the company’s growing collection of original film posters.

Now Mondo  is excited to announce their first-ever print for Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings,” kicking off a series that will include all films and multiple artists. The first poster in the series, “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” by artist Aaron Horkey was unveiled last night at Mondo Mystery Movie X at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.  This one has our heads spinning and our mouths drooling.  Horkey’s work is f’n fantastic.  (Sorry bout that, couldn’t help myself.)

These new images are reminiscent of his previous work for Jurassic Park.  His style is easily identifiable, spectacular and fits PERFECT with The Lord Of The Rings.  Check out some of Horkey’s other work below or head on over to his website HERE.
