Mondo is set to release some fantastic posters for… wait for it… King Kong! The extremely talented Laurent Durieux makes his Mondo debut with these posters and from the moment I heard the news, I knew I would be plunking down the cash for these, probably on eBay since there’s no way I’ll be able to buy them from Mondo directly. The posters will be sold at a screening of the movie at the Alamo Drafthouse on May 28, and then the leftovers will be sold on Mondo’s site, so the pickings will be very slim.
When the initial announcement was made, I clicked through to see the final poster design with the enthusiasm of a toddler going to the zoo, and what I saw gave me pause. King Kong’s got boobs.
I know it sounds ridiculous, but I was crushed. The poster is phenomenal, but those boobs. I couldn’t stop staring at them!
Well, something happened, and it looks like Kong went through a breast reduction procedure. I’m not sure if another layer of ink was added to the printed posters or what, but all is right in the world again.
But wait, there’s more! In addition to the poster shown above, Durieux also hit another home run with this guy…
Wow. This poster WILL find its way into my cave, so he can watch over my King Kong collection.
