Tomorrow MONDO will release a Back To The Future II print by Matt Taylor. MONDO released Matt’s first Back To The Future print at Thought Bubble last November.
A few words from Matt about the print:
“When I did the BTTF poster last year for Thought Bubble I was determined to try and create a poster that didn’t feature the Delorean because – as I said at the time – I thought Laurent Durieux and Phantom City Creative had made the definitive DeLorean posters. But as it happened, I just couldn’t let the opportunity pass to draw that iconic car, seeing as the Mondo guys were so good as to let me take a swing at the second movie. And anyway, everyone knows the flying DeLorean is so much cooler than the original.”
Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters will be available online at a random time on Thursday, April 2nd.

EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony Pictures Entertainment have released the teaser poster for Spectre.
Directed by the Academy Award winning Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty), Spectre stars Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Munich), Ben Wishaw (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, I’m Not There), Naomie Harris (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, 28 Weeks Later), Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Invisible Woman), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds), Monica Bellucci (Irreversible, Malena), David Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Man with the Iron Fists), Léa Seydoux (Inglourious Basterds, Blue is the Warmest Color), Stephanie Sigman (Miss Bala, Pioneer), Andrew Scott (Locke, “Sherlock”) and Rory Kinnear (Quantum of Solace, The Imitation Game).

Spectre (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), as Bond fans know, is a fictional global terrorist organization featured in Ian Fleming’s novels, as well as the films and video games based on those novels. The organization was led by the villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, although the cast is definitely playing it coy about whether or not Blofeld will actually appear in the new film.
Spectre, written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, hits theaters on November 6, 2015.
A rare poster for the 1931 horror Frankenstein is set to fetch $225,000 at auction.
One of the world’s rarest movie posters for the classic horror Frankenstein has emerged for sale – for a staggering $225,000. The 84-year-old poster for the cult 1931 film, which starred Boris Karlov as Dr Frankenstein’s monster, is the only one of its kind in existence.
It was discovered languishing in an old projection booth in a disused theatre in Long Island, New York during the 1970s before being restored to its former glory. The 6ft 6ins by 3ft 5ins poster, known as a ‘three sheet’ because it is made up of three panels, has been in a private collection ever since.
Frankenstein was one of the first horror films ever made, and the poster is one of only a handful of originals known to have survived. Collectors are expected to pay as much as $225,000 to get their hands on the coveted poster when it goes under the hammer at Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas. A spokesman for Heritage Auctions said: ‘Only a small handful of one sheets including one teaser, one six sheet, one insert, and a restored half sheet are all that have appeared of the posters, not including lobby cards,’ the spokesman said.
