Edgar Wright Drafthouse

Many readers out there are probably well aware of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas as they've been holding special screenings for years now, usually complete with special guests and some great swag. This coming weekend brings more of the same for The Alamo Drafthouse, but with an all-new theater, and director Edgar Wright has graciously decided to help them with the opening by screening all three of his films: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. In addition, artist Kevin Tong was commissioned to craft a special Mondo poster in honor of the event. Check out the poster below!

Here's the poster which Edgar Wright revealed on his very own blog Edgar Wright Here:

For more details on all the screenings and happenings at the new theater on Slaughter Lane, check out Wright's blog post right here. As for the screenings themselves, it looks like they are all sold out. However, as of now, there are still tickets available for the joint dinner party and screening of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World which you can still purchase here. The menu features items like Kung Pao Chicken Pizza and "Vegan" Chicken Parmesan, so that sounds pretty damn great. And while that poster above is pretty great, it will likely only be sold at the triple bill even at The Alamo Drafthouse. However, if any posters made for events like this are leftover, @MondoNews will alert their followers if there are some available for purchase. Cool?

This is so much better than the one they had at the New Beverly.

No, not cool. So tired of this worn-out Mondo trend.

It's not a trend. Mondo has been making great posters for years. They're a staple. Why so grumpy?

 So grumpy because First Showing can't get through a week without showing a Mondo poster. Just open an advertisement space for them, already, and get back to the good FILM scoops!

We cover cool posters, videos, etc. related to movies. Sorry if you're one of a small handful of people who don't enjoy the posters, but most of our readers love seeing them. Also, there's usually a new Mondo poster every week, so that might be why you see one so often. Hope everyone else enjoys them!

Not to mention that these limited edition Mondo posters are an excellent investment.  I bought a Robocop one a few years ago for $35 and it now sells on Ebay for $500.  If Firstshowing didn't introduce me to it I would've missed out on ordering one before they sold out.

 I have nothing against good movie posters, but the partiality to Mondo is sickening, and reeks of backdoor money-changing.

Last I checked, there weren't any other poster companies consistently hiring designers and illustrators that I love to make posters for movies I love. Nothing underhanded about good taste.

 @phillibuster87:disqus - Then make a Mondo poster fanboy blog. I'm sure the FS writers would love to cross-post.

Jesus dude. Then don't click the article if you're so angry about it. Move along.

@242b290f9ad4252f5b9c146838ec3bf8:disqus stop whining or GTFO. This site's "Posters" category shows a healthy mixture of posters from various sources (firstshowing.net/category/posters/). FS hardly even covers a fraction of Mondo's output. In any case, there's a reason why the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are archiving their prints.

@Zeus - How 'bout no?

This guy is probably a representative for another poster company. Mondo is incredible.

We cover all the normal film scoops all the time anyway, as well as cool posters, even non-Mondo ones. We just love movie artwork, anything related to film, and we love Edgar Wright's movies, so it was worth sharing this. Sorry you're not a fan of the Mondo art.

It was cool at first, but now it's just unoriginal.

Blurb on Mar 22, 2012

Sure, but how is it unoriginal? Where have you EVER seen this artwork before or even seen anything like it before?

 @buddha1822:disqus - March 13. And before that March 11. And before that March 01. Feb 29. Feb 17. Feb 01. Jan 30. Jan 25. Jan 17. Dec 29. Dec 22. Dec 14. Is no one else seeing an annoying pattern of minimalist hipster art here?
