"Can one man make a difference?" No, no, not that Ben Affleck. Well yea, that Affleck, but—the filmmaker. Mondo revealed a new series they've commissioned to highlight the movies of Ben Affleck - the Director. In 2007, Affleck made his feature directing debut with Gone Baby Gone, a riveting kidnapping thriller that is still my personal favorite Affleck-directed movie. He followed that up with the Boston crime thriller The Town in 2010, then won Best Picture with the based-on-a-true-story 70s thriller Argo in 2012. Mondo made print for each one and they're stunning, honestly, The Town especially, the glow of the lights - perfect.
Up first, here's the print for Ben Affleck's Argo (2012) designed by Matthew Woodson - 24"x36" at $45:
Next - my favorite art print in this Mondo series, the poster for Ben Affleck's The Town (2010) designed by Daniel Danger (website). 24"x36" at $45 (red one). The variant is included below (yellow one) sold at $70.

Mondo unveils a new poster series centered around a trio of films from Ben Affleck. Collaborating with a variety of artists, Mondo has produced three moody pieces of artwork to capture Affleck's impressive directorial accomplishments for Argo, Gone Baby Gone and The Town. "I've always loved Mondo and their passion for film, as well as their talented stable of artists. I was initially drawn by their ability to offer a unique perspective on so many beloved films and am thrilled to see my films become the newest additions to their work," said Affleck. The poster series will be sold starting Monday, December 9. For the exact sale time please follow @MondoNews. Each print (except for the variant) sells for $45 if you want to grab one.

These posters become more and more contrived and derivative. Let's see some true originality - if it's going to make news and not just another advertisement for their website.
