50 Greatest Mondo Posters

Iron Giant (1999)

The Poster: A companion piece to Brad Bird’s superior animation creation, with the giant himself up front and centre – rightfully so.

Coolest Detail: The fact that it’s so joyously old school, even though the film’s animation is amazing.

I Saw The Devil (2010)

The Poster: A POV shot from inside a car, with the film’s title splashed blood-like on the windscreen. Wonder what caused that?

Coolest Detail: The wing mirror detail is a nice touch.

28 Days Later (2002)

The Poster: Minimalistic but still a feast for the eyes.

Coolest Detail: It’s a recreation of the film’s most iconic scene, but doesn’t milk it too much.

Assault On Precinct 13 (1976)

The Poster: A stark, stylish ode to John Carpenter’s Us vs Them shocker that keeps it simple and is all the better for it.

Coolest Detail: The bullet marks in the film’s logo, and the fact that the number 13 has been turned into a target practise.

City Of Lost Children (1995)

The Poster: Moody and atmospheric, much like Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s odd but loveable fantasy.

Coolest Detail: Ron Perlman. The guy’s cool even in cartoon form.

The Mist (2007)

The Poster: Super atmospheric rendering that captures both the chilly premise and the futility of our hero’s struggle against insurmountable foes.

Coolest Detail: The monster has six legs – just what is that thing?!

An American Werewolf In London (1981)

The Poster: Simple black and white ode to John Landis’ werewolf chuckle-chiller.

Coolest Detail: Wales has been deformed to give us a Magic Eye-style outline that’s almost too smart for its own good.

Jurassic Park (1993)

The Poster: A blazing, artistic concept that cleverly includes the ‘When dinosaurs ruled the Earth’ banner from the film.

Coolest Detail: The inclusion of (presumably) T-Rex bones with the real live beast.

Monsters Inc. (2001)

The Poster: Minimalistic, block colour effort that has a nifty little diagram next to the logo that shows us how screams are turned into electricity. Sort of.

Coolest Detail: The sneaky presence of blink-and-miss-him chameleon Randall Boggs.

The First Avenger: Captain America (2011)

The Poster: Sepia-toned, presumably to make the red of Red Skull’s bonce stand out all the more.

Coolest Detail: Both of the Captain’s shields – prototype and real deal. The coolest weapon a guy could ask for.
