At some point today, Mondo will release its latest poster for the H.G. Wells’ sci-fi classic, The War of the Worlds. This poster was designed by Paris-based artists, Stan & Vince. I think they nailed it, especially with the variant, which features glow in the dark green ink. The image really captures the feel of giant invaders from outer space, and I appreciate the way it feels like the poster is straight out of the 50’s. The variant will be $85 and the regular edition will be $55.
Through the years, there has been some great imagery associated with this film dating back to its release in 1953 (and yes, the omission of any image with Tom Cruise was intentional).
My favorite modern poster design was this one that Tom Whalen created for Dark Hall Mansion. The hot pink ink on this print would look excellent in my cave on a dark and gloomy night. It almost make you feel okay that the world is burning down around you.
