Mondo will be dropping new “War of the Worlds” prints from the awesome artists Stan & Vince! There are two versions available, they go up today, January 8, 2015 at a random time – check out what the artists’s had to say about the piece:
“Byron Haskin’s WAR OF THE WORLDS was released 62 years ago, and even though we weren’t around at the time, this movie was made for us. We KNOW it! Byron Haskin had to know that his movie was to be aired decades later in front of our 80s teenage eyes, printing powerful, everlasting images in our brains. We’re pretty sure he also knew that Mondo was going to ask us to work on a poster for this movie! To recapture the taste and flavor of H.G. Well’s story put in those glorious fifties frames and make people hear the sizzling sound of the saucers’ deadly death rays.
That’s the magic we wanted to have in this poster. We wanted to put viewers back in the theatre seats where they first saw the movie, in the frame with the hero as he watches the invaders coming into the city! We wanted this poster to feel the retro-style menace of the red planet.”
