Another Killer Mondo Poster for Ridley Scott's 'Alien' by Randy Ortiz
In space, no one can hear you scream when your chest bursts open and an alien pops out of it. Mondo has just unveiled their latest poster, a brand new design for Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi Alien from 1979. The art is designed by Randy Ortiz and gives us a rather creepy view of the facehugger attached to a face. Mondo had these new prints whipped up for special 35mm screenings of Alien they're hosting in Austin this weekend because "Alamo Drafthouse dedicated October's repertory programming to space movies instead, celebrating Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity." Perfect. I really like this artwork, it's something unique. Take a look.
This new Alien print will be screenprinted 24" x 36" in a limited edition of 275. The art was designed in conjunction with two 35MM screenings this upcoming weekend at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin, TX (get your tickets here). "We will be in the lobby selling the poster at both screenings. Come out and say hello and celebrate Halloween (and space films) with us." Extras (if there are any) will likely be sold online after.
Ridley Scott's Alien was first released in June of 1979. We're all familiar with the legacy of the space horror franchise, which lead to numerous sequels and various (mediocre) spin-offs. The original is still considered a sci-fi classic, described as the perfect "haunted house movie." Is this one better than the studio's posters?
