Tugg, a web-platform that enables individuals to choose the films that play in their local theaters, and Mondo, the collectible art division of the Alamo Drafthouse, team up to bring the cult classic BATTLE ROYALE to theaters along with a brand new poster from artists Bryan Lee O'Malley and Kevin Tong.
This is what they say in the press release:
“BATTLE ROYALE, long available in the United States only as an import DVD, has been added to Tugg's library for fans to create their own screenings at their local theater nationwide. To celebrate the film and this incredible print, Mondo is hosting the first Tugg screening of Battle Royale as part of the opening weekend festivities at the Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park in Houston, a brand new, state-of-the art theater. The screening will take place on February 16th. The ticket price of $85 includes the cost of one variant poster.”
Mondo is a division of the Alamo Drafthouse famous for bringing art back to movie poster design. Using the talents of world-class artists and designers, Mondo produces limited edition, screen printed posters based on film, television and comic properties including STAR WARS, THE AVENGERS, BACK TO THE FUTURE and UNIVERSAL MONSTERS. They're based in Austin, TX.
If you're in Houston this screening is a no-brainer, and this poster is the cutest thing I've seen today! Take a look at it below.
