Last Night’s “Mondo Mystery Movie: Part 2” Event

I just wanted to give everyone a quick recap of last night’s “Mondo Mystery Movie: Part 2″ event at Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse. First of all, the film was Jurassic Park, the stunning posters were made by Aaron Horkey. This beast is a 21″ x 39” with fifteen total colors (including the fades), two of which are metallic. Aaron was in attendance, as was the film’s special effects wizard, the legendary Phil Tippett. I’ve included images of the posters, plus pictures from Justin Ishmael’s Q&A with Tippett, which was one of the best I’ve seen. If you were there, thanks for the great night. If you weren’t, there’s always next time. Enjoy!

  1. incredible – just outstanding…

  2. This would’ve worked for a band maybe, but as a movie poster? No. Just… No.


  4. Wow, that’s amazing.

  5. Best Horkey I’ve seen yet, love it!

  6. Ahhhh! So cool!

  7. OMG. David Letterman was right! Mechanical lizards. Thanks for the photographic proof. (Nice Poster Too!)

  8. I love the posters so much, but I live in Chicago and can never make these events….. they really do make me super sad that I can’t have access to these…. please, please, print more….

  9. I love it. Just hope eventually people realize that Horkey doesnt flip, so just sell it at a reasonable price to someone who actually wants the print.

    Just waiting it out on the bay now for people to start dropping prices next week…

  10. Them peeps in the ass kicker state got it good with Alamo. Show Cali some love- branch out here mystery stylee.

  11. The 8 year old kid in me just did a backflip. Must own.

  12. Great night, awesome poster. Thanks guys!

  13. Yo Mitch
    Are we going to see this up on posters and toys soon?
    Great work as always from sire Horkey!

  14. awesome poster but regulars going for 250+ on ebay is just………..

  15. …reasonable.

  16. very, very cool. mondo is really putting together some amazing events. know lots of people must be working behind the scenes on these. really impressive stuff! hope everyone there enjoyed it.

  17. It is funny how a lot of people thought it was Lethal Weapon 2.

  18. I guessed The Dark Knight.

  19. my daughter (5yo) has been HOUNDING me for a dinosaur poster w t-rex in it, as it is her fav….i think i just found exactly what she (an i) were looking for….

    i HOPE more get released…or i can get my hands on one of these….such great work!!

  20. What a great Illustration and print job. You guys have really outdone yourselves.

  21. I understand the frustration with people wanting this in other cities, but it makes me laugh when that statement is followed by “L.A.” or surrounding areas. Those places already have a ton of events. I suppose it makes more sense to have it in larger cities or wherever it’s convenient, but you could also make an argument to have showings in smaller cities. Maybe Mondo wouldn’t get as much money, but it would be more fun to take it on the road (costly as well, I’d imagine). And you would reach a variety of different people.

  22. Hey 13. Agree with t he L.A. statement.

    They do sometimes have screenings in smaller cities with Rolling Road Show. I was able to score the entire Olly poster series when they played Robo Cop in Detroit.

    Do agree one off random screenings around the country would be great.

  23. If Mondo or the Draft House could purchase the old run down theater in Hanover, PA…then I would be happy. Hint Hint Hint

  24. I’d be more than happy to make the drive to the New Beverly for a MMM. Heck, we practically had one with Kill Bill.

  25. Score Monsters Inc.!!! It is a good day.

  26. Pardon the pipe dream, but how about a screening on Cape Cod?

  27. 15 colors!? That must have taken foreverrrrrr.

  28. I hope Mondo is stepping up and filtering out the nasty grams in Horkeys mail box for him, these events can’t be fun for the fans who live everywhere but TX.

  29. I had a great time, and I flew in from Chicago. There were a lot of out of towners there.

  30. pretty sweet poster. looks like they…….spared no expense.

  31. With all the screenprinters, illustrators and movie houses out there, it surprises me other people aren’t doing these.

    This shit would be huge in New York or Chicago. Hell even Toronto……

    And I agree with everyone, this image is amazing….


  32. Great poster once again! Didn’t know Horkey looked like Danzig drymounted a care bear though!

  33. I think that is Justin, not Aaron.

  34. If you like Alamo and have money open your own theater. You can franchise!

    Also if you like the print and want to trade hit me up I have an extra.

  36. damn, that monsters, inc print was sweet – totally missed out on that one…

  37. Clever girl

  38. Which one is Horkey? The steroid guy or the old man?
