New Posters from The Alamo Drafthouse

Well folks, this is one of my favorite movie posters in quite awhile.  Florian Bertmer’s poster for The Holy Mountain is a 24″ x 36″ screenprint, has an edition of 125, and is $35.  Jesse Philips also did a poster for Tommy, it’s a 20″ x 36″ screenprint, has an edition of 50, and is $30 (there is also a silver variant with an edition of 25 for $50).  Lastly, Jon Smith’s poster for Dark Side of the Rainbow is a 24″ x 36″ screenprint, has an edition of 35, and is $30 (the variant is already sold out).  Visit Mondotees.com.

  1. The holy mountain print has a really cool illo, just not a fan of the ‘radial cloning’ he does on some of his stuff, makes the design look really digital

  2. 3 amazing prints!

    I actually used that same moonscape image in a print I made for a friend :)

  3. These are sweet!
    Thanks for the heads up!
    Love the low cost for huge, high quality prints!

  4. I’m not really feeling any of these very much. And I’m really disappointed in the Holy Mountain poster. I love that film and that is such a safe/drab poster for it.

  5. Regular version of Dark Side of the Rainbow is sold out now too…

  6. there’s a typo on the holy mountain poster – adirana page should be adriana

    whoops.

  7. a safe/drab poster?i think it’s totally iconic having the alchemist on it.would you rather have shock effect graphics with crucified dogs on it just for the sake of shock value?i think this is a very calm and almost meditating image that fits the message perfectly.

  8. I have to agree with YeahRight, I think the Holy Mountain poster is absolutely beautiful and an appropriate representation of the film.

    Mondo does it again!

  9. Needs more midget Santa Clause.

  10. These are a great example of why Stout is the best in the game.

  11. stout?only thing he does is trace photos.

  12. I love the diversity, if Stout did every one, it’d get so old. That being said, this release is so-so for me too.

    I could care less if he traces now and then, or even if he traces the whole thing, it’s how he puts the poster together which is key. And he sure puts them together.

  13. Tyler Stout’s one of the most talented cats around. My Thing poster tells me so every time I look at it. That being said if all I had on my walls was his work I might as well buy my art at IKEA.
    I think the Holy Mountain print is pure hotness and I bought it for that very reason.

    @recycler: it’s COULDN’T care less, not could. To say you “could” care less is to say you care, which is completely meaningless. When you COULDN’T care less about a thing you’re saying you just don’t care, the intent of the phrase. Keep meaningful language alive fools!

  14. Holy Mountain is incredible, as are both Dark sides…… The Tommy is ok.

  15. I am loving all three of these. Especially the Blue Tommy. I like the combo of hues. All of these poster should be amazing to see as D & L is excellent, thought their metallics seem a bit weak. Check Firehouse.

  16. D&L, weak metallics? Shut the fuck up.

    You don’t know what you’re talking about. All jobs are printed per the artists direction.

    Anything you see is supposed to look that way, if the artist wants big ass metallic flake so it looks chunkier/sparkles more we can do that, if they want it smoother looking we can do that too. If they ask to have some metallic added to a normal color we do that all the time.

  17. I don’t think I said anything about having the poster be about shock value. However the film does have a lot of shock value. I love the iconic alchemist, that being said it’s also a very safe concept to go with since it’s the images used on the original poster as well as the image you tend to see when the film is brought up. Even if you’re going to go with the alchemist, it’s a very bland interpretation of him. Everything contained in that box, the complete opposite of what the film is about. “very calm and almost meditating”? The film is a huge ‘fuck you’, “Real life awaits us…”. Even the outlined text is blah as well as the color scheme. Not saying this dude doesn’t have talent or is bad at what he does, I’m saying I don’t think this was a good choice for this film. I do really like the frog pattern int he background probably the most interesting part of the poster.

  18. @Justin: I totally agree with your take on the Holy Mountain poster and the film itself. I think you see things pretty clearly there. For me the restraint and “calm” and “orderly” qualities of the poster are the best part. It’s like having a Shining poster that’s simply a profile shot of Jack working diligently at the typewriter with a beautiful Colorado winter day bursting through the floor to ceiling window to his right. It’s like “wait’ll you see what this fucker’s actually up to”.

  19. I have some Tommy regs. here in case you missed them on mondo :
