Mondo is the collectible art boutique offshoot of the Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain and, as we’ve previously reported, the folks there have produced an array of stylish, eye-catching posters for old movies. But Mondo has also commissioned posters for new films, including Drive and Hobo with a Shotgun. Now the company is paying tribute to director Drew Goddard and cowriter Joss Whedon’s forthcoming The Cabin in the Woods.
This twisty gore-fest is released April 13 but those lucky folks attending a special advance screening of Cabin tonight at the new Alamo Slaughter Lane location in Austin are being gifted the poster, which was designed by the Phantom City Creative. You can see the poster to the left and, in a bigger version, below. “All I’ve ever wanted in life was to make a movie that had its own Mondo poster,” filmmaker Goddard said in a statement. “I can now exit this mortal coil a happy man.” A limited number of posters will also be available for sale online from tomorrow morning.
What do you think of the poster? Are you looking forward to seeing The Cabin the Woods? Have you already seen it? What did you make of it (remember, no spoilers!)?
