Mondo Takes on Spielberg with Fantastic Posters for 'Jaws' and 'E.T.'
Spielberg devotees, prepare thy wallets and hope you have a quick trigger finger tomorrow. AICN debuted two new Mondo posters highlighting the director's classic films Jaws and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, and they're both pretty damn fantastic. Artist Laurent Durieux has created an old school postcard-style travel image for Jaws, showing Amity Island with a subtle homage to the terrifying shark's fin embedded in an umbrella in the center, while designer Mike Mitchell takes a much more traditional approach to E.T. by capturing the gorgeous bicycle flying sequence in a burnt orange hue. Both go on sale tomorrow. Check ’em!
Here is Laurent Durieux's new poster for Steven Spielberg's Jaws from 1975, debuted by Ain't It Cool:
And here is Mike Mitchell's mesmerizing poster for Spielberg's E.T. from 1982, also debuted by AICN:
As is always the case with Mondo posters, these will sell out in a matter of minutes and they'll go on sale at a random time tomorrow, which is Thursday, January 17th. But since these are two of Spielberg's most beloved movies, Mondo might break a record with how fast these fly off the digital shelves. Follow Mondo's Twitter account to discover when they go on sale, and bookmark their website if you haven't already to try to snag these when they become available. Mike Mitchell’s E.T. is 36X24 with an edition of 475, and will cost $45. Laurent Durieux’s Jaws is 24X36 with an edition of 525, but that one runs $60. Which do you prefer?
