Hugo and Rango are the first posters to debut in Mondo's Academy Award series

02.17.2012

The poster artists of Mondo are back and focusing on their favorite nominees from this years Academy Awards.

First up is RANGO and HUGO. I still haven't gotten a chance to see Scorsese's trip to the children's genre, but I have seen RANGO. I cannot express how much I loved that film. I even love the making-of process-- acting out the entire film on set instead of just immediately going into a booth of loneliness for hours.

The details for the posters are below. Can't wait to see what they have in-store for us next!

Mondo, the collectible art boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse, announces its first ever Academy Awards poster series, featuring limited edition prints of their favorite nominated films in select categories. There will be four posters from four different categories and the first two include:

HUGO (Best Picture category)

Artist: Kevin Tong

Size: 24x36

Edition: Regular (295), Variant (100)

Price: Regular ($45), Variant ($70)

RANGO (Best Animated Film category)

Artist: Tom Whalen

Size: 18x24

Edition: 270

Price: $40

The other two posters in the series will be revealed next week.

It was announced last year that Mondo has partnered with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to archive all prints for their research library.

Two of the most insanely overhyped films of the year. Hugo was a disaster up until its wonderful final act - why are we rewarding such an uneven clunky film? Because of its navel gazing finale?

Miguelito is exactly right - Rango isn't so much a movie - it's more a series of awkward homages loosely strung together. Utterly tedious.

And I'm so over these Mondo posters. They're all the same, and all inadequate.

Meh

These posters are usually boring, this year's debut batch being no exception. On another note, Kung Fu Panda 2 was without a doubt the best animated movie of the year (that is nominated.) That Joblo refuses to acknowledge this is absolutely beyond me, as they gave they film an 8/10, which I thought was fair. Isn't it pretty much agreed upon that Rango was very cool and stylish, but was basically a series of clips commemorating old westerns? kung fu panda was an epic story, rich with emotion and

Wow, those are gorgeous

I loved both those movies. I wasn't as thrilled with Rango (I thought Arthur Christmas and Winnie the Pooh were better films) but Hugo was awesome. I would so love to have that Hugo poster on my wall.
