Mondo Gallery is excited to announce its next show will celebrate director Richard Linklater’s esteemed filmography including his newest film Everybody Wants Some, making its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. The show will feature limited edition screen-printed posters for several of Linklater’s classic films including Slacker, Dazed and Confused, Waking Life, Bernie, Boyhood and more. The show will kick off with an opening reception, open to the public, on Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 7pm to 10pmand will run regular hours until Tuesday March 15, 2016. Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.

Richard Linklater is one of the key figures responsible for establishing Austin’s incredible film community — a community that Mondo and Alamo Drafthouse are immensely proud to be a part of. From founding the Austin Film Society to producing films in and around the Austin area, Richard Linklater is a champion of cinema in the city. His stories tell the journey of life as it is, funny and challenging and constantly moving. Mondo is thrilled to honor him and his filmography with a talented group of artists to interpret these themes with an art exhibit as unique and diverse as the films he has made.

“Mondo has reinvigorated cinematic poster design. It’s a big honor to have their trailblazing design team reimagine the art that accompanies my films,” said Richard Linklater

“No director’s films feel more aesthetically tied to Austin, TX than those of Richard Linklater. Between classics like The Before Trilogy, Dazed and Confused, Boyhood, I think all of us can call at least one of his movies a favorite. We will welcome him to our gallery with a definitive collection of screen-printed posters paying tribute to one of Texas’ premier storytellers,” said Mondo Co-Founder/Creative Director Mitch Putnam.

Bruce Springsteen’s Autobiography To Be Released September 27, 2016

1

Simon & Schuster is proud to announce the world-wide publication of Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography, Born to Run, which will be released internationally on September 27, 2016. The work will be published in hardcover, ebook, and audio editions by Simon & Schuster in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and India, and rights have already been sold to publishers in nine countries.

Springsteen has been privately writing the autobiography over the past seven years. He began work in 2009, after performing with the E Street Band at the Super Bowl’s halftime show.

In Born to Run, Mr. Springsteen describes growing up in Freehold, New Jersey amid the “poetry, danger, and darkness” that fueled his imagination. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work, and shows us why the song “Born to Run” reveals more than we previously realized.

“Writing about yourself is a funny business,” Mr. Springsteen notes in his book. “But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.”

“This is the book we’ve been hoping for,” said Jonathan Karp, publisher of Simon & Schuster. “Readers will see their own lives in Bruce Springsteen’s extraordinary story, just as we recognize ourselves in his songs.”

New Batman v Superman Posters

Here are two new Batman v Superman posters showing you both sides of the battle!

In the film, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Directed by Zack Snyder and written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, joined by Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.

Kevin Smith Will Be ‘Geeking Out’ On AMC Late Night

kevin-smith-greg-grunberg

Pop culture fans, unite. AMC Thursday announced a weekly late-night talk show, tentatively called Geeking Out.

Director Kevin Smith (Clerks), one of the featured players on AMC’s Comic Book Men, and actor Greg Grunberg (Heroes, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will host a half-hour show that “will take a timely look at pop culture through a fanboy lens” with discussion, video clips, interviews and out-of studio segments, according to the show’s description.

The show is expected to premiere, fittingly, with a special episode covering San Diego Comic-Con, whose convention-goers would seem to be a likely audience for Geeking. Eight more episodes will run weekly later in the summer.

The show is expected to premiere with a special episode covering Comic-Con International: San Diego in late July, with eight more episodes to run weekly, starting in late summer.

“Kevin and Greg are both true fans of this content, and share a deep passion for talking about it, and engaging other fans about it. But it is their natural chemistry as hosts that really brings this idea together,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming for AMC.

“AMC has been my TV family for five seasons of Comic Book Men now, so I know that Geeking Out is in the perfect, fan-friendly network hands,” said Smith.

“I get all my work from my friends. Now it’s time for me to take advantage of those relationships even more,” said Grunberg, who has acted in many J.J. Abrams productions. “I am going to get every single genre-based writer, director and actor I know to come on our show and geek out with us. And they’re going to thank me for it. I love how Kevin Smith smells and we fit together like two hibernating fan-bears.”

New Life-Size, Voice-Controlled BB-8 Toy To Premiere At 2016 New York Toy Fair

The 2016 New York Toy Fair kicks off this weekend and it may just be showcasing a dream come true for any Star Wars the Force Awakens fan. Many fans quickly purchased their own little BB-8 toy last year by the toy maker Sphero but may have wished that their droid friend was more true to the original.

This weekend company Spin Master will reveal their own version of the famous droid BB-8. Their droid will be over 16-inches tall, remote controlled and for the first time respond to your voice commands.

This BB-8 toy will respond when you say its name, roll over to you when you call it and even has a Follow Me mode so he can always be by your side. This BB-8 will also come with lights and authentic sound effects from the movie.

Unfortunately we won’t see this collectible toy out in the market until later this Fall and he will also cost you $180.
