MONDO To Release Mad Max: Fury Road Soundtrack & Posters On May 15, 2015

To celebrate the return of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), and director George Miller’s post-apocalyptic world of metal on metal carnage in Mad Max: Fury Road (in theaters May 15), MONDO is excited to unveil the original motion picture soundtrack in a gorgeously packaged vinyl album and two glorious screen prints.

The vinyl comes with two interchangeable covers with artwork by Boneface featuring Max and Fury Road’s big bad, Immortan Joe. Boneface also contributed a character-focused screen print, which nicely complements Killian Eng’s hellish landscape portrait, featuring an armada of menacing vehicles. The posters will go sale along with a pre-order for the vinyl at MondoTees.com on Friday May 15, 2015.

“The artists had a lot of fun with this one. George Miller’s iconic production design in the Mad Max films has been injected with nitro for Fury Road. His visionary world offered a kaleidoscope of visually arresting characters, vehicles and landscapes for Boneface and Killian Eng to play in. We were honored for the chance to work on one of our most anticipated films of the summer,” said MONDO CEO Justin Ishmael.

Mad Max: Fury Road Original Score

Composer Junkie XL utilized the movie’s vast landscape to explore a diverse range of musical territory, from beating drums to sweeping strings and electric guitar-driven operatic themes, utilizing nearly 200 instruments. “The score includes almost everything in a composer’s arsenal. The instrumentation ranges from big, brutal percussion and an 80-voice choir, with string sections and musical sound design, and everything in between. I used anything I could get my hands on.”

Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg) has built a reputation on musical experimentation. The Grammy-nominated multi-platinum selling producer and composer’s versatility puts him on the cutting edge of contemporary music, as well as at the vanguard of film composition.  Junkie is able to draw on his extensive knowledge of classical forms and structures while maintaining a connection with popular music. His recent film credits include Divergent, 300: Rise of an Empire, and Run All Night. Junkie XL’s upcoming projects include Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Warner Bros. Point Break, inspired by the classic 1991 hit film of the same name, releasing December 25, 2015. He is teaming with Oscar® winning composer Hans Zimmer for Batman v. Superman, providing the music for Batman with Zimmer composing the score for Superman in the film. Junkie XL has collaborated with Zimmer on several projects including The Amazing Spiderman 2, Man of Steel, Shark Tale, and one of the highest-grossing films of all-time, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. He is also currently creating new themes for EA Sports’ prestigious NFL video game franchise Madden ’16.

MONDO Announces When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth Gallery Show Opening On June 12, 2015

MONDO’s dino-sized gallery show celebrating Jurassic Park and the highly anticipated Jurassic World (in theaters June 12) will feature dozens of artists contributing original works of art and screen prints for one of the all time greatest blockbusters.

“When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth” will have an opening reception on June 12th from 7:00 -10:00pm. The show will be on display until June 27th.

The films offer a rich world of colossal dinosaurs, gorgeous tropical landscapes and iconic characters for artists to draw their inspiration from. The title of the show “When Dinsoaurs Ruled The Earth” references the climactic scene of Jurassic Park when the T-Rex triumphantly reclaims her dominance at the top of the food chain, making the past tense of that falling banner’s copy ominously incorrect. Now 65 million + 22 years later, dinosaurs are getting their first fully functioning theme park in Jurassic World with all of the terrible implications of how that will go perfectly wrong.

“Hosting an entire gallery exhibit of new Jurassic Park artwork is a dream come true for us. It has been over 20 years since the first film captured the imagination of the entire planet and we hope to recreate some of the wonder and excitement of the franchise with this show,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ismael

Mondo will also offer a limited pressing of the previously sold out Jurassic Park original motion picture soundtrack on Dino DNA Splatter vinyl. The first poster reveal from the show is from artist Francesco Francavilla, depicting the awe-inspiring T-Rex ready to take a bite out of a certain island off the coast of Costa Rica with its inverse composition alluding to another famous Steven Spielberg movie poster featuring a toothy maw.

Francavilla_JurassicPark_FINALWEB_1024x1024

The following artists will be represented at “When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth.

Dan Black, Frans Boukas, Becky Cloonan, Sam Wolfe Connelly, DKNG, Jason Edmiston, James Flames, Francesco Francavilla, Ken Garduno, Nicole Gustafsson, Brandon Holt, Aaron Horkey, Jock, Rich Kelly, Kilas, The Little Friends of Printmaking, Dan McCarthy, Seb Mesnard, Drew Millward, Gary Pullin, Arik Roper, Neal Russler, Tiny Kitten Teeth, Todd Slater, Stan and Vince, Ken Taylor, John Vogl, Teagan White, Erica Williams, NC Winters and Wocco.

Remaining prints and original works will go on sale at MondoTees.com at a future date. Follow @MondoNews for more art reveals and information leading up the show! For more information on the gallery, visit MondoTees.com.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release King Kong Print By Nicolas Delort On May 15, 2015

Dark Hall Mansion is proud to reveal its latest entry in the DHM Seminal Film Series of limited edition print releases, 1933’s classic, “King Kong,” by artist Nicolas Delort on sale next Friday, May 15th!

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros. Entertainment Consumer Products, has invited leading artist, Nicolas Delort, to take on one of the most influential and groundbreaking of cinema’s early classics. Informed by Willis O’Brien’s legendary stop-motion animation, “King Kong” smashed records on opening at Radio City Music Hall in 1933 and has never looked back since. Its impact shaping generations of filmmakers is undeniable, yet it is Kong’s pathos that forever registers in the hearts of fans. Far from some simple brute, the power and tenderness Kong so eloquently expresses plays out in pioneering and arresting close-ups that still resonate with viewers to this day, Kong’s ending as heartbreaking as it is unforgettable.

Nicolas Delort’s expressed vision for his piece was, from the start, to tell Kong’s tale, organically, to see him in his own domain, the world Kong inhabits. Taking the viewer right to Skull Island, Nicolas’ piece is as much about this mysterious world as it is about Kong himself, and nowhere is this more evocative than in his striking rendering of a cavernous skull and its weeping waterfalls. Nicolas’ “King Kong” print beautifully ties back, mid, and foreground, the native’s massive gates at rear, Kong’s engaged prehistoric battle, and finally, Carl Denham’s camera quietly piercing the jungle, placing the viewer right with the intrepid film crew as it first comes upon the majestic ape. As always, Nicolas brings his striking detail work to bear and compliment his composition and story, while elegant finishing touches, such as his title treatment, herald what’s to come in New York and further showcases his skills.

In a very special surprise for fans, ALL Standard and Variant Nicolas Delort “King Kong” editions will be screen printed on foil, inclusive of metallic ink highlights. There will be a Standard B&W 5-color (2 colors being metallic) screen printed foil edition, and a Variant Sepia-toned 5-color (2 colors being metallic) screen printed foil edition, both measuring 20″ x 30,” and all editions hand-numbered. There will also be two select, giclee printed canvas editions, one with Nicolas’ unique and moody lavender color scheme, the other based on Nicolas’ original B&W vision.

Marvel Studios Begins Production On Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War

ASDADASDAS

Marvel Studios has commenced principal photography at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia on “Captain America: Civil War,” the third installment of its Super Hero franchise. The production will shoot on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production, as well as locations in Germany, Puerto Rico and Iceland.

Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, “Captain America: Civil War” is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Community”) from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: The Winter Solider,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”). The film returns Chris Evans (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”) as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”) as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: The First Avenger”) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as The Vision, Jeremy Renner (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s “The Avengers”) as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Godzilla”) as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. After his debut in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015, Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man,” ”Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) will make his first appearance alongside the Avengers as Scott Lang/Ant-Man in “Captain America: Civil War.”

The film also includes outstanding additional cast, including Chadwick Boseman (“42,” “Get on Up”) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Revenge”) as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Bourne Ultimatum”), Frank Grillo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Warrior”) as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt (“A History of Violence,” Marvel’s “The Incredible Hulk”) as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Martin Freeman (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”).

“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
