Mondo's Academy Awards Poster Series Debuts with 'Hugo' & 'Rango'

Which are your favorite Oscar nominees? Mondo has announced its first ever Academy Awards poster series, featuring limited edition prints of their favorite nominated films in select categories. There will be four posters from four different categories and the first two include: Martin Scorsese's Hugo and Gore Verbinski's Rango. The Hugo poster was designed by Kevin Tong, and while it's not 3D or lithographic, it is wonderful anyway. The Rango poster was designed by Tom Whalen, and has a sense of spunk and fun like the film. Check out both new posters below, which will go on sale during the Oscars on February 26th.
They have not yet announced what the other two posters in the Academy Awards series can be, so we'll have to wait until next week to find out (any other guesses?). The Hugo print is 24" x 36" and costs $45 for a regular, $70 for a variant (which comes in a darker red color theme instead). The Rango print is 18" x 24" and is being sold for $40, no other variant. It was announced last year that Mondo has partnered with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to archive all prints for their research library. As always, follow @MondoNews for more updates and any sales announcements on their posters. Both of these look great!
