Check Out Mondo's Awesomely Pink Poster for 'Drive' by Ken Taylor
My top film of 2011, if I haven't said enough, was Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive, pure perfection in every frame. While the film didn't do well in theaters, I had a feeling it'd become a cult hit and it has, especially as it finally hits Blu-Ray. Since the marketing was incredibly lackluster, fans have created lots of their own art and posters for Drive, and many are quite good. But Mondo has gone the distance and hired Ken Taylor to design the official Mondo Drive poster, for an event that occurred last night in Austin. It has since debuted online and it's as gloriously pink as the logo itself, but awesome. I'm definitely going to try and pick one up!
Here's the new Drive poster created by Ken Taylor. Originally debuted by EW.com but now available in full:
Gotta love all that pink! When the Alamo Drafthouse got together to write their list of top ten movies of 2011, Drive was almost unanimously the staff's #1 pick. The Alamo's favorite film of 2011 came back in the theater for one night only for a special Mondo event! In honor of the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Drive, Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo teamed up with Sony Home Entertainment & FilmDistrict for a special screening of Nicholas Winding Refn's Drive and unveiled the Mondo poster for the film, created by Ken Taylor. Extra copies printed in 24" x 36" will be sold by Mondo (@mondonews) online starting Thursday, February 2nd. As I know there are many, many fans of Drive out there, I'm sure these will sell very quickly.
