This year, the good folks at Mondo are celebrating the late, great Stanley Kubrick with a series of specialty screenings, enamel pins, and brand-new t-shirts mean to commemorate the master's greatest films, and today they revealed a new line of 2001: A Space Odyssey shirts.
Let's take a look!
They're also offering a new hoodie, which - despite the fact that I have already far exceeded my hoodie budget for the year - Imma need to pick up immediately.
Here's a press release on this new round of releases:
Open the pod bay doors, Kubrick fans. Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, are proud to announce that their epic, year-long homage to filmmaker Stanley Kubrick continues with a line of officially licensed merchandise celebrating the titanic achievement that is 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
The exclusive 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY apparel collection includes four eye-popping T-shirt designs and a hoodie -- all pulled directly from the film’s wealth of distinctive visuals. The collection will be available for a limited time on mondotees.com starting April 4th.
“2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is arguably one of the greatest films ever made,” said Jay Shaw, Mondo Brand Director. “Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke crafted a science fiction masterpiece that has remained relevant and vital for nearly fifty years. Mondo could not be more proud to celebrate this cinematic landmark.”
This apparel collection for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is the second release in a new line from Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo celebrating the masterworks of Stanley Kubrick. Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will continue this collection of officially licensed apparel with FULL METAL JACKET and THE SHINING as part of a year-long celebration of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.
All of the above are currently available over at this page on the Mondo website, along with all the other Kubrick Collection goodies Mondo's released this year. There's plenty more on the way, too, so keep your eyes peeled for further announcements as the year barrels on!
In the meantime: what's your favorite from the collection above? I'm sticking with the hoodie, but I'm curious which one you folks prefer.
