Modern mainstream movie posters have long lacked the artistic aim of their vintage predecessors, and Mondo, an art house collecting different artists takes on pop culture posters, plays a part in changing that. Jon Favreau became a fan after working with Mondo on campaigns for "Iron Man" and had to have the collective on hand for his summer action flick “Cowboys & Aliens”.
In late July, Mondo released the first of four limited edition “Cowboys & Aliens” posters, featuring artists chosen by Favreau. Next week, the last poster will be released in celebration of the “Cowboys & Aliens” Extended Edition on Blu-ray Combo Pack. You can see it right now after the jump.
The print, by artist Florian Bertmer, will be available for sale on Tuesday, December 6th at mondotees.com. For $45 you get 24x36 inches of extreterrestrial showdown in sepia tinged western comic style. The previous three comic and art deco style prints can be seen at Hero Complex.
Do you prefer more art-centric posters to contemporary composites that aim to Photoshop a film's every bankable element into an incongruous collage? Let us know what you think in the comment section or on Twitter!
