Mondo Reveals Cool 'Wizard of Oz' Print in Honor of IMAX 3D Release
In case you've forgotten, the classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz is coming back to theaters later this month, but will be presented for the first time in IMAX 3D for just one week before the 75th Anniversary Blu-Ray hits shelves later. Now the collectible arthouse Mondo is getting in on the action with an awesome new print from Graham Erwin featuring the yellow brick road traveling quartet. The 24″x36″ screen print in an edition of 275, and unfortunately, the print has already sold out, but we thought it was still pretty cool. Plus, everyone should be remindedto see The Wizard of Oz in theaters all over again or for the first time!
Here's Graham Erwin's The Wizard of Oz print for Mondo via SlashFilm:
The Wizard of Oz, starring Judy Garland as Dorothy, Ray Bolger as The Scarecrow, Bert Lahr as the Lion, Jack Haley as the Tin Man, Billie Burke as Glinda and Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch, will get its IMAX 3D re-release starting September 20th later this year. The musical will play in 400 IMAX theaters nationwide for one week before the 75th Anniversary Blu-Ray hits shelves after. Referring to the experience of seeing so much vibrant color on film at that time, IMAX CEO Greg Foster says, "that must have been an amazing experience to see it then, to be truly taken away to another world. That's what we'd like to do [with IMAX 3D]." I love Wizard of Oz, it's one of my all-time favorites, but I don't think I'll see it in 3D. Anyone?
