Mondo Kicks Off 2017 With Stunning New Prints For DRIVE And THE AVIATOR

You gotta see these.

Heads up: today, Mondo's kicking off the new year with two brand-new posters, both of which are absolute knockouts. 

For starters, here's Drive by Rory Kurtz, which is - all hyperbole aside - quite possibly the best Drive poster I've ever seen (and lemme tell ya, I've seen a lot of Drive posters):

24"x36" Screen Print / $50 Edition of 375 
Printed by D&L Screenprinting 

Look at the coloring on that! Look at those smeared headlights! Look how badass Gosling looks! This is an all-timer Mondo poster, and you can bet your sweet ass I'll be gunning for one when they go on sale later today.

Now let's take a look at Jonathan Burton's The Aviator, which comes in a Regular edition and a Variant:

24"x36" Screen Print / $75 Variant Edition of 125

Another homerun. Never would've occurred to me to pair Burton with this property, but a) just look at those results and b) I guess that's why I don't work for Mondo.

Speaking of, here's their notes on the Burton set:

THE AVIATOR is Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio's depiction of the compulsive nature of Howard Hughes, a man whose life spanned many decades and obsessions. When deciding on an artist for the project we knew we needed someone who could capture the grand history of Mr. Hughes. Jonathan's art perfectly depicts both the frantic energy and old Hollywood charm of the HELL'S ANGELS sequence, portraying Hughes as both man-of-the-sky and cinematic rebel.

The regular and variant versions each represent specific color palettes in the film. Scorsese and his team created two unique palettes (Technicolor inspired two color and vibrant three-strip) to approximate the technology of the film industry in the movie's time periods.

All three of these prints will drop at the Mondo website sometime today, so keep your eyes trained on their front page and be ready to check out with a quickness. If the response to these images is any indication, none of these posters will last long.

Which do you guys prefer? Going after any of 'em? Sound off in the comments below, and good luck on that drop!
