Moviegoers who purchased a ticket for Mondo’s Mystery Movie X (held at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin, TX) were in for a real treat this past Thursday, July 5, when the mystery movie – which special guests Elijah Wood and Justin Ishmael, creative director at Mondo, had initially tricked the audience into believing was the 1996 film Flipper – turned out to be Peter Jackson’s The Return of the King. Even better, those in attendance received a limited edition LOTR print designed by Aaron Horkey, which came in two variations:
If you weren’t in Austin and missed your chance to grab one of these prints, don’t fret! Alamo and Mondo announced that this is just the first in what will become a series celebrating Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” films.
This series will include posters drawn up by various artists, and like most of Mondo’s pieces, there will be two editions: the regular edition, which consists of 260 pieces, while the other variant has 125. Both posters run at a scale of 19.25 by 39.
