MONDO To Release King Kong Prints By Jonathan Burton On June 9, 2016

This Thursday June 9, 2016, Mondo will release two brand-new King Kong posters. Designed by artist Jonathan Burton and chosen by attendees at last year’s MondoCon

The 2 prints will be vailable at a random time at Mondo’s website. Here’s what Jonathan Burton had to say about the creation of these prints:

“The Kong project has been a huge pleasure to work on particularly as the ideas were voted on by Mondo fans at the MondoCon 2 panel. The audience was split between these two and I’m flattered to be asked asked to produce both. The challenge for me was to make them both work as individual posters and as a pair.

The ‘Jungle’ poster is a nod to the spirit of the original 1933 posters playing on the fear of the immense monster. He is KING in his own habitat. Whereas the ‘City’ version (paying tribute to the Art Deco style of the film’s opening credits) shows us Kong on the defence dwarfed by the man-made skyscrapers fleeing from the human captors.

As Carl Denham says, “He’s always been a king in his world, but we’ll teach him fear”

Linking them together we have Ann Darrow in each, Jack Driscoll and Carl Denham are in both with very similar poses. The titles are in exactly the same place and the tag-lines help express the connected themes of a strange giant beast obsessed with the beauty of Ann Darrow ending up being controlled and destroyed by man.”

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.
