Mondo To Release Labyrinth Poster By Laurent Durieux & Enamel Pins By DKNG On May 18, 2017

Tomorrow Mondo is celebrating one of their favorite films of the ’80s, Labyrinth, with a poster by the inimitable Laurent Durieux and new enamel pins from DKNG.

Absolutely brimming with creativity and innovative puppetry and creature effects, Jim Henson’s 1986 fantasy film tells the story of Sarah (played by Jennifer Connelly) as she journeys into a dreamlike world inhabited by all sorts of memorable characters and puzzles to retrieve her baby brother from David Bowie’s iconic Jareth, the Goblin King. Laurent Durieux has done a beautiful job capturing the magic and insane variety of creatures born of the film portrayed as various toys positioned around Sarah’s desk.

Mondo will also have beautifully designed enamel pins by DKNG featuring Sir Didymus on Ambrosius, a Fireys and his detachable head, and the Worm (‘ello!).

Please follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters and pins will be available online at a random time on Thursday, May 18th at mondotees.com.

Comic-Con HQ Giving Away David Bowie Labyrinth Poster By Tracie Ching

CoDfmPaUEAAhFYY.jpg-large

Since his death in January, David Bowie has been honored as a singer, a songwriter, a live performer, a fashion icon, and an all-around pop culture great. But it makes sense that Comic-Con should pay tribute to his acting career and, in particular, his role as the Goblin King in the much-loved 1986 fantasy film, Labyrinth.

Starting at 10 a.m. PT on Friday, Comic-Con attendees will be able to pick up a commemorative, Bowie-featuring Labyrinth poster. Available at Comic-Con HQ LIVE, outside the Hilton Bayfront next to the Convention Center, the poster was designed by Tracie Ching and also features Bowie’s costar, Jennifer Connelly.

Comic-Con HQ, the premium digital network from Lionsgate and Comic-Con International, will broadcast live noon-5 p.m. each day of the convention, and is available on the web, iOS, Android, Amazon, and now Roku. Select segments will also be available via Facebook Live and Twitch.

Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Release Coming In September

1

A new 30th-anniversary release of Labyrinth pays tribute to the late Jim Henson but also to its iconic Goblin King, David Bowie.

For those who missed out on seeing it on the big screen in 1986, the film is coming to select theaters around the country Sept. 11 and 14 through Fathom Events. Plus, the fantasy film — directed by Henson, executive produced by George Lucas and scripted by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame — receives a new anniversary edition on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD on Sept. 20.

Labyrinth stars Jennifer Connelly as a 16-year-old girl who wishes for her baby brother to be taken away, but then has 13 hours to solve a complicated maze in order to rescue her sibling from the Goblin King played by Bowie, who died in January at the age of 69.

In addition to having legacy content such as a making-of documentary and commentary by designer Brian Froud, the new Blu-ray is a 24-page “digibook” edition with rare behind-the-scenes photos and extras including Connelly and the Henson family discussing Jim Henson’s puppetry and filmmaking, an anniversary Q&A hosted by MythBusters’ Adam Savage, and a Bowie remembrance by Connelly and Henson’s children.

Exclusive content will also be shown as part of the Fathom screenings, and Amazon will have for sale a limited-edition Labyrinth Blu-ray gift set with “mirrorbox” packaging based on the final scene from the film.
