Steamboat Willie Mondo poster

Mondo has done it again.

Just when you think you have the poster boutique figured out, Mondo throws a curveball at you. Mondo has had some big-time releases as of late: a STAR WARS series, a Star Trek series, and a director’s series seemed to be taking Mondo away from their cult film roots that fans have celebrated for years. Then, Mondo changed it up with posters of horror icon William Lustig (MANIAC, MANIAC COP 2, VIGILANTE) and a recent poster of Jim Jarmusch’s DOWN BY LAW.

Their newest poster will turn many heads, as it is another high-profile release: Disney’s STEAMBOAT WILLIE. The famous short starring Mickey Mouse was released in 1928, and hopefully signifies that Mondo is teaming with Disney to produce posters for many of their films.

As long as Mondo continues to create posters for smaller, cult films to accompany their bigger releases, I will be a happy man with an empty wallet.
