Mondo's Stellar Series of 'Planet of the Apes' Posters Fully Revealed
"Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!" Mondo Tees created a fantastic series of posters for the Planet of the Apes franchise last May during a screening series at the Alamo Drafthouse called "Day of the Apes". For some reason, these posters are just getting revealed in full online now, and extras will be sold off this week. A number of different sites (via Collider) have unveiled five of the official posters for the five movies in the franchise, with a sixth one promoting the event thrown in for good measure, too. If you're an Apes fanatic like our own Brandon Tenney, you'll go crazy for these posters. Check ’em out below!
Here's all six Planet of the Apes posters organized chronologically for the films in the franchise, with the sixth "Go Ape" one added in there as well (which you'll get if you buy the entire set). Click on any of these to view them full-size. More info on how to buy any extra leftover prints of them beneath these. Here they are:
Artists who designed these are: Planet of the Apes - Martin Ansin; Beneath the Planet of the Apes - Ken Taylor; Escape from the Planet of the Apes - Rich Kelly; Conquest of the Planet of the Apes - Phantom City Creative; Battle for the Planet of the Apes - Florian Bertmer; and Go Ape! - Jason Edmiston.
Most of these are being printed as hand-numbered, 24" x 36" screen prints, and they're gorgeous. According to the info on SlashFilm, it looks like there are about 300 of each available for sale. Mondo Tees will sell a set of all six of them for $230 (damn good price!) starting tomorrow, Thursday, January 26th. Individual prints will also go on sale on Friday, January 27th. You can follow @MondoNews for updates and alerts on when they go on sale; they'll be hard to get. Additional variant versions will be sold later on by Sideshow Collectibles. I'm definitely going to try and get my hand on a few of these! Which one is your favorite?
