As a paramount fixture in an emerging movement and subculture, Mondo is breaking new ground with classic films. To some, a movie poster exists purely as a piece of marketing and as a picture on a video box. Justin Ishmael and his team strive for more. Encapsulating the magic of each film, Mondo is responsible for bringing limited edition screen prints to loyal fans around the world.
Set to the backdrop of the Summer of 1982 series at the Alamo Drafthouse, episode one of Machinima’s three part series focuses not only on one of Mondo’s most ambitious projects to date but explores the story behind one of the most iconic film posters in the history of science fiction: John Carpenter’s 1982 classic The Thing.
With interviews from the Mondo staff, Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League, legendary artist Drew Struzan and John Carpenter himself, fans of cinema and of Mondo are granted unprecedented access to a truly unique print.
