This Elysium poster from illustrator Martin Ansin is incredible
Yes, the poster is incredible. I have yet to see something come out of Mondo that I don't like. In the past I've taken to my soap box anytime a poster is involved with an article. Poster art is one that seems to have gotten lost in the digital age, and artists that pair with Mondo like Martin Ansin are dedicated to keeping it alive.
That said, this artwork for the ELYSIUM poster blew my mind. It immediately reminded me of the legend that is Drew Struzan. Then I thought of my love for album artwork and how it doesn't matter how many times you've seen it, a great cover will always stand out. Maybe I'm getting a little overzealous about it but I think this deserves the praise.
The poster along with the variant went on sale yesterday during Comic-Con. But don't worry you didn't miss out, there plans to make them available online at a later date. Make sure to follow @MondoNews for the sale date.
In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
ELYSIUM is due in theaters on August 9th, 2013.
