MONDO Announces Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo Gallery Show Opening On April 25, 2014

pc_site

MONDO announces “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo” a comics-themed show featuring artist Mike Mitchell’s iconic portraits of Marvel’s huge stable of heroes and villains, running from April 25th through May 17th. The characters of The Avengers, X-Men and Spider-man will be represented along with many others from Marvel’s incredible library. The opening night event will be Friday, April 25th from 7 – 10pm at the MONDO Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. Artist Mike Mitchell will be in attendance.

“My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up. Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath. There’s a humanizing quality to that which I find extremely interesting. This has easily been the most ambitious project I’ve ever taken on, and it’s due in part to my love for their universe; which is fictional by definition, but real in my mind and in the minds of others,” said Mitchell.

The Marvel villain MODOK has also taken over MONDO Gallery, with a super-sized cutout adorning the exterior of the building.

Warner Bros. Entertainment & DC Entertainment Celebrate Batman’s 75th Anniversary

Batman75_logo_1COLOR_blk_580_53337eb4cb4440.11378405

To mark the milestone 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ Batman, Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC Entertainment have revealed plans for a year-long celebration befitting the world’s most popular Super Hero.  Highlights of the anniversary program, which starts today, include a new commemorative 75th anniversary Batman logo and an exclusive “Cape/Cowl/Create” art exhibit, featuring 20 contemporary artists’ interpretation of The Dark Knight’s iconic cowl headpiece and cape from the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight videogame.  There will also be 75th anniversary-related activities across all of Warner Bros. Entertainment throughout the year.

1477477_10152290239533485_1129020552_n

First appearing in the comic book Detective Comics #27, which hit newsstands on March 30, 1939, featuring artwork by Bob Kane and a script by Bill Finger, Batman emerged from the shadows to become the world’s most popular Super Hero and dominate all media.  In feature films, TV shows, radio, video games, publishing and merchandise, this most human of Super Heroes has battled some of fiction’s greatest villains using his intellect, cunning and an arsenal of gadgets to further his quest for justice.

DetectiveComics27_1318879256

“Batman is an incredibly important property with multi-generational appeal across all of the Studio’s businesses, and we’re proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary,” said Kevin Tsujihara, Chief Executive Officer, Warner Bros. Entertainment.  “From billion-dollar blockbuster films to TV, home entertainment, video games and consumer products, The Dark Knight continues to resonate with audiences worldwide and rightfully deserves his place as a global pop culture icon for the ages.”

Batman is the single most successful Super Hero film franchise in history and there have been more theatrical movies released based on Batman than any other comic book character.  In video games, the Batman Arkham franchise is also the most successful Super Hero game concept ever.  Batman consistently breaks records in every incarnation of his character and remains the gold standard by which all other comic book sales are measured.

“Batman is one of the greatest characters ever created, in comics or elsewhere, and even after 75 years he continues to wildly fascinate fans.  He is an integral part of pop culture and has successfully captured the imagination of the entire world,” said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President & Chief Content Officer, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.  “The origin of Batman, Bruce Wayne and the famous citizens of Gotham are legendary and likely a story you know inside out, even if you’ve never picked up a comic book in your life, and that speaks volumes to the character’s immense popularity and the constructs of the original mythology.”

The first published adventure of The Bat-Man (as he was then known) was in the May 1939 issue of  Detective Comics #27, conceived of and drawn by a 22-year-old Kane with his frequent collaborator, Bill Finger, scripting the story. The character was so successful, that one year later the first comic book devoted exclusively to the Caped Crusader’s adventures, Batman #1, hit newsstands. In that issue, Batman battled The Joker and Catwoman for the first time.

Now, DC Entertainment and the Studio’s various divisions, including Pictures, Television, Animation, Interactive Entertainment, Home Entertainment and Consumer Products, will mark this extraordinary 75th anniversary with a range of highly anticipated events and products.

The new commemorative logo, also released today across social media and websites, takes its cue from the famed Bat symbol, and features block-style lettering of “75 Years.”  The mark will be rolled out on Batman-related promotions, products and initiatives.

D23 Expo – The Ultimate Disney Fan Event Will Run From August 14 – 16, 2015 In Anaheim, California

1209411_10151916859657035_1288140018_n

All the magic and excitement of the past, present, and future of Disney entertainment will come together once again under one roof when D23: The Official Disney Fan Club presents the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center the weekend of Aug. 14–16, 2015. Each of Disney’s wonderful worlds will unite to celebrate what’s new and what’s on the horizon from theme parks, television, music, games, and films, including Pixar, the Muppets, Star Wars, and Marvel. 

 The fourth event promises to be the biggest ever, following the success of D23 Expo 2013, which drew more than 65,000 Disney fans for three star-studded days and nights. Fans were treated to appearances by such superstars as Angelina Jolie, Chris Evans, Billy Crystal, Natalie Portman, and Tom Hiddleston; watched performances by Idina Menzel, and R5 featuring Ross Lynch; enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime concert from Disney Legends Alan Menken and Richard M. Sherman; explored the inner workings of Walt Disney Imagineering; looked back at Disney’s rich history through extraordinary panels, presentations, and exhibits; and discovered the newest entertainment, technology, and products from The Walt Disney Company.

D23 Expo

Highlights planned for D23 Expo 2015 include the 2015 Disney Legends Ceremony, which honors the talented men and women who have made significant contributions to the Disney legacy; Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, a collection of one-of-a-kind assets, props, and costumes curated by the Walt Disney Archives; and the Collectors Forum, where Disney fans can buy, sell, and trade Disney collectibles, memorabilia, and merchandise. Once again the event will feature a massive show floor full of special opportunities to see what’s on the horizon for Disney around the world—and guests may run into their favorite Disney stars, characters, Imagineers, animators, and filmmakers. Plus, the event will once again feature StagePass, the popular ticket distribution system that allows attendees to obtain a guaranteed seat for some of the Expo’s most popular presentations.

Advance tickets for D23 Expo 2015 will go on sale at D23Expo.com beginning August 14, 2014. D23 Members will receive special pricing on both one- and three-day tickets to the event, which is open to the general public. D23 Gold and Silver Members will also be entitled to early admission to the Expo show floor. D23 Charter Members will enjoy access to the Expo’s Charter Member Lounge. Members will also have an opportunity to purchase the Sorcerer Package, which provides a host of special benefits and amenities.

Attendees of The Godzilla Screening At The Ritz Alamo Theater On March 11, 2014 Will Receive A MONDO Godzilla Poster By Phantom City Creative

Austin-based design studio MONDO commissioned an exclusive poster for the new big-screen version of Godzilla coming this summer. Designed by Phantom City Creative — who also created a special “Godzilla” poster for 2013 San Diego Comic-Con — the print shows the iconic monster literally rising out of the smoke of a smoldering city.

The design of the new “Godzilla” is directly inspired by the classic look of the creature from the 1954 original movie. With that in mind, Gareth Edwards, the director of the new version, will be hosting a screening of the classic monster movie at the Ritz Alamo Theater in downtown Austin. The screening of the restored original Japanese version with 40 minutes not seen in the American edit is on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 9:30pm, and attendees will receive a copy of the limited-edition poster. Check out the SXSW schedule for more details.

The updated “Godzilla” starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, and Bryan Cranston, will stomp into theaters on May 16.

Josh Cooley To Sign New Book, Movies R Fun At Gallery 1988 On February 22, 2014

tumblr_n0wvcs9wFR1rr18wao1_500

On Saturday, February 22, 2014, come to Gallery 1988 (West) between 8-10 PM for the return of Josh Cooley. To celebrate the new book, Movies R Fun! A Collection of Cinematic Classics For The Pre-(Film) School Cinephile, G1988 will be the 1st place you can purchase Cooley’s movie-inspired children’s book and get tons of prints (and even a few originals), all limited edition. The artist will be on hand to sign the book.

The 48 page hardcover cleverly translates memorable scenes from classic contemporary films into the format of an “inappropriate Golden Book.”

 51gssxj4z5l

The idea for the book originated when Josh’s daughter was born and he realized it would be at least 17 years before he could share his favorite films with her. His tongue-in-cheek solution was a child’s book that could introduce some of the most memorable moments of those films

MONDO Announces Solo Show For Artist Laurent Durieux Opening On February 7, 2014

MondoGallery_Durieux_Digital

MONDO is pleased to announce Laurent Durieux’s first solo show at the gallery in Austin, TX (4115 Guadalupe Street), beginning on February 7, 2014 at 7:00 PM and running through March 1. 

Durieux will offer new and exciting renditions of classic films like Back to the Future, The Birds & Forbidden Planet to name a few.

Durieux was born in Belgium and studied graphic design at the College of Advertising and Design in Brussels. After over 20 years as an illustrator, he made his way into the world of screen-printed movie posters, creating new art for films such as The Iron Giant and King Kong.

A preview of the artist’s screen prints for the gallery show can be seen below.

“The bloody beak of the crow is a direct reference to the scene where the neighbour is found in his bedroom by Jessica Tandy with his eyes missing. I originally wanted to place an eyeball in the crow’s beak, but I thought it was a bit too gory for a Hitchcock movie… so I toned it down a notch. I really love the variant on this one,” said Durieux.

“Man, I love this movie! So retro-futuristic, so naive, so kitsch! That’s really my dope! Robby the Robot is iconic which is why I had to put it as THE star of the movie poster. The original poster is just sublime, the colours are just so vibrant, and so I tried to emulate that impression on my own take of this science fiction classic. This poster is the piece that took me the longest to finish, almost 2 months! I think it was worth the effort and the number of layers!” said Durieux.
