Those who grew up in the ’70s identify with Star Wars, while the ’80s kids remember growing up on Terminator 2 and Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking Jurassic Park. Even today the CGI in Jurassic Park is superior to many films that hit theaters…
For those of you who collect or just want a new one sheet for your wall, Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is pleased to announce their new licensed poster series for Jurassic Park. The first breathtaking poster features imagery from the iconic final shot of a triumphant Tyrannosaurus Rex from artist Aaron Horkey.
Artist: Aaron Horkey
Size: 21″ x 39″
The poster & series was unveiled last evening at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar as a Mondo Mystery Movie, a popular programming series that keeps the film & poster a secret right up until the film rolls. Jurassic Park is the second Mondo Mystery Movie, which sold out in under a minute several weeks ago. The film was shown in a glorious 35mm print and was attended by legendary FX artist, Phil Tippett.
For a generation of moviegoers seeing Jurassic Park in theaters was a momentous event and one that engrained clear memories of seeing dinosaurs walk the Earth once again. “‘Jurassic Park‘ is one of Mondo’s biggest series yet. Along with Star Wars and Star Trek, we’ve seen an equal level of excitement amongst artists to take on this seminal film. We’re incredibly excited about Aaron Horkey’s poster and what’s to come,” said Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael.
The Jurassic Park poster series will continue with world-renowned artists rendering their vision of the classic film. A second print is scheduled to be available for online sale timed to the release of the Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy on Blu-ray on October 25, 2011.
The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy arrives on Blu-ray for the first time ever with the groundbreaking films remastered in flawless high definition and hours of bonus features, including an all-new, six-part documentary called Return to Jurassic Park.
