Below please find information on panels, screenings, artists & exhibitors and MondoCon exclusives.

PANELS

Designing Movies
Panelists: Geof Darrow, Jock, Mike Mignola, Alex Pardee, William Stout and Bernie Wrightson
It could be as small as a weapon or as big as an entire world, but each part of a film is designed by an artist. Who does that? How are the creatures, ships and landscapes of our shared dreams created? MondoCon sits down with six artists who have given form to some of the most iconic imagery in film. They will share stories and art, including pieces that have never been released publicly from the design phase on films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ghostbusters, The Matrix, Blade 2, Dredd 3D, Return of the Living Dead and more.

The Art of Toy-making
Panelists: Mike Mitchell, Brock Otterbacher, Dan Willett
Go behind the scenes on the world of collectible toys! The panelists will dive deep into Mondo’s brand new toy line with photos and design images from the making of the first lineup of collectibles for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Iron Giant and Alfred Hitchcock. Artist Mike Mitchell will also talk about turning his Lil’ Mikey illustration into a 3D figure. The future of Mondo’s toy collectibles will be discussed with the announcement of a new vinyl figure from a beloved comic book property.

Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy
Panelist: Geof Darrow
Renowned comic book creator (Hard Boilded, Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot) and conceptual film artist (The Matrix trilogy) Geof Darrow will discuss Shaolin Cowboy, including presenting 8 minutes of never-before-seen finished animation from an unproduced adaptation of the beloved cult comic. In 2009 Variety reported that the Wachowski siblings and Circle of Confusion were producing an animated feature of Shaolin Cowboy, but no one has ever seen this footage publicly… until now. Darrow will discuss his history with the project and his experience working on the animation in Japan. This is a unique opportunity for the world to get a first look at a potential anime classic that almost was.

Shaolin Cowboy follows an unnamed former Shaolin monk who wanders the land with a talking mule named Lord Evelyn Dunkirk Winniferd Esq. the Third. Having been “asked” to leave the Shaolin temple, he has since had a bounty placed on his head, which many are eager to collect. Given the Shaolin Cowboy’s prowess in martial arts, however, this proves to be very difficult.

“I met Geof Darrow a year ago in San Antonio. During our talk, he mentioned that he once lived in Japan and was working on an anime. My brain broke at the thought of a Geof Darrow anime based on Shaolin Cowboy followed immediately by heartbreak when he said that funding was pulled and the project was canceled. I’ve always wondered what it would be like. What would a Geof Darrow drawing be like if animated? What would the Shaolin Cowboy look like in action? Good news. All of these questions will be answered at MondoCon,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael.

2001: A Lost Score
Panelist: Brian Satterwhite
Mondo is releasing the lost score for 2001: A Space Odyssey on vinyl for the first time ever!
Stanley Kubrick’s seminal masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey is known for its classical musical cues as much as for its vivid imagery. What few people know is that those cues that are forever associated with the film were a last minute revision on the part of Kubrick. An original score exists, composed for the film by the late composer Alex North (A Streetcar Named Desire, Spartacus) that was abandoned during post-production. North did not know his score was discarded until he saw the film’s premiere screening.

Composer and writer Brian Satterwhite will host a panel on the subject, featuring a live presentation of several scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey with the lost score meticulously reintegrated back to the film to show what could have been.

Working with North’s estate, Mondo will release “Music for 2001: A Space Odyssey” in a deluxe package, complete with liner notes by Jon Burlingame. The vinyl will be available for sale at the Mondo booth.

Godzilla 1983
Panelist: William Stout
Long before Gareth Edwards and even Roland Emmerich took on the iconic monster, Godzilla was set to make landfall on American soil, but it wasn’t his time. Writer Fred Dekker, FX artist Rick Baker and conceptual artist William Stout were just some of the big names involved in an early attempt at a US-produced feature film in the 1980s that few were even aware existed until now.

Artist William Stout will take the audience through the entire feature film with over one hundred storyboards and conceptual art designs that he created along with Dave Stevens (creator of The Rocketeer) and Doug Widley (creator of Johnny Quest)

Mondo Talk: Art Direct a Poster Live!
Panelists: Justin Ishmael, Mitch Putnam, Rob Jones
Mondo Creative Directors Justin Ishmael, Mitch Putnam and Rob Jones will discuss the creative process behind Mondo’s work, showing how the team works with artists to arrive at final images. The panel will include a presentation of alternate poster concepts from previously released prints and reveal new poster designs. The audience will also have the unique opportunity to “art direct” a project live during the panel, adding their feedback and voting on their favorite concept. Mondo will then produce the fan-created project.

SCREENINGS
Tickets for the evening screenings will be made available to badge holders ONLY via Eventbrite before the convention. Stay tuned to the MondoCon website and @MondoConAustin for screening times, ticket release dates and additional screening announcements.

FUTURE SHOCK! The Story of 2000AD (World Premiere Screening)
A long overdue documentary that tells the story of 2000AD, the unsung cult hero of the comics industry. This film will celebrate and pay respect to the comic and explore its importance and influence on contemporary pop culture. Through in-depth interviews with the creators, writers, artists and fans of the last 35 years, we will tell the story of how this irrepressible, independent weekly comic has survived to have such a widespread cultural impact, not only on the international comics industry but also in film, art and literature.


MondoCon will have the world premiere screening of this documentary on Saturday, September 20. The screening will be free to badge holders with the Mondo poster for the event sold separately following the film. The trailer for FUTURE SHOCK! The Story of 2000AD can be found here.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with Live Original Score
The most terrifying film of all time will be presented as you have never seen or heard it before. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will be shown remastered in 4K with an original score performed live at MondoCon on Sunday, September 21. Composers Anton Maoif and Umberto created a completely new score for the film over the course of the last year after conceiving of the idea with Death Waltz records at Beyond Fest last October. This is the first time it will be heard anywhere. The film will also play with the live score at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles on September 27.

Death Waltz records has produced the score and will make it available exclusively at the two shows in Austin and LA. Only 800 copies will be created. The exclusive Death Waltz vinyl will be included in the cost of admission. View a trailer for this very special event here and listen to three tracks from new score on Sound Cloud.

Sci-Fi classics Ghost in the Shell and Total Recall (1990) will also have screening events on Saturday, September 20 at MondoCon with brand new Mondo prints included in the cost of admission.

MONDOCON EXCLUSIVES

The Iron Giant Mini-Gallery
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Iron Giant Mondo will present a mini-gallery with multiple artists taking on the beloved animated classic.

Mother Of Dragons by Simon Delart

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Dracarys! The Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen, is immortalized courtesy of the triangular brilliance of French artist Simon Delart (AKA S2lart). 



We have revisited Simon Delart (AKA S2lart) with his typically brilliant display of triangular awesomeness numerous times and in our most recent coverage, the French artist take on the small screen with his stunning rendition of Netflix's House of Cards, CW's Arrow, and Showtime's Penny Dreadful

Continuing Delart's current spate of works inspired by the Golden Age of Television, the artist recently take on what would certainly be one of the most iconic television roles of our time, the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. An assignment commissioned by a most fortunate fan, the regular Poster Posse member certainly did not disappoint with the awe pixelized piece formed by a total of 2601 triangles. With no further ado, check out the cool print right below, courtesy of Blurppy.

The Walking Dead Season Five: First Look - Zombie of the Week

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Come October 12th, we will see the glorious return of AMC's The Walking Dead.  And here's our First Look at the much-anticipated Season Five of the all-conquering TV adaptation of  live-action TV adaptation of the popular comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard. 




With their last season concluding in the sense-shattering finale "A", we knew for certain that the fifth season of The Walking Dead, AMC's critically acclaimed live-action TV adaptation of the popular comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, is going to be a game-changing chapter. 

At the San Diego Comic-Con last month, the crew came out in full force to give a glimpse of what to come in the fifth season and it certainly does not disappoint. With some new clips and the SDCC trailer available online now, here's our first look at one of the greatest television series running now.

First up, an eleven-seconds teaser clip, followed by the SDCC trailer.





And here are some new images courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.








The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on 12th October.



Nightcrawler: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies

"If it bleeds, it leads!" 

In Nightcrawler, the feature directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, witness the unnerving transformation of Jake Gyllenhaal in an intriguing crime thriller that also explores modern media ethics. 




Sometime back in 2013, it was reported that Academy Award nominee 
Jake Gyllenhaal apparently went through some drastic physical transformation which is a far cry from his hunk physique in the 2010 Disney film, Prince of Persia. And with the unveiling of Nightcrawler, we can fully comprehend the acclaimed actor's method (acting) to the madness.

In his feature directorial debut, Dan Gilroy, the screenwriter of Bourne Legacy along with his brother, Tony (the film-maker who brought us the surprisingly intriguing Duplicity), and husband to actor Renee Russo, explores the fine line of crime journalism by taking on the subject of nightcrawling, the unorthodox practice of stalking crime scenes to get breaking news and footage ahead of the other media, in the seedy underworld of L.A. Also starring Bill Paxton, Riz Ahmed, and the aforementioned Rene Russo, Nightcrawler will first be making the rounds at the Toronto International Film Festival in September with an official release in October.

What really appealed to us with the film is the first viral teaser clip depicting a hauntingly brutal job-hunt by Gyllenhaal's character, Lou Bloom. The gaunt appearance of Gyllenhaal became immediately hypnotic for the maniacally driven and desperate Bloom as he went through his well-rehearsed job interview speech again and again in the unnerving clip. Check it out right below followed by the first and second official trailer of the film.





The first trailer of the film.


The second trailer of the film.

 

The first poster for the film.


Official images from the film.










Here’s the official synopsis for the film:


NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles.  Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism.  Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents.  Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives.  In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.

Nightcrawler is currently scheduled to premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September with an official release on October 31st, 2014.



Men, Women & Children: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies

In Men, Women & Children, acclaimed film-maker Jason Reitman tackle the real problem of this generation: Social Media, as we take a First Look courtesy of the first trailer of the film based on the novel of the same name written by controversial writer Chad Kultgen. 



Jason Reitman is easily one of this generation's most prolific and intriguing film-maker given his remarkable body of work from Thank You For Smoking to Labor Day (despite what you might feel against the divisive Labor Day). After all, this is the film-maker who brought us true cinematic gems like June and Up in the Air, as well as four Academy Award nominations. While all these facts can more than justify our interests in Reitman's next project no matter what they are, the newly-released trailer of Reitman's upcoming still manages to entice us tremendously.


An adaptation of the novel of the same name written by controversial writer Chad Kultgen, the first trailer of Men, Women & Children displays to us on how joyless it could be for youths of this generation to live in this time and age in a particular moving way. Check out the trailer right below.




The first official image from the film.




Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

“MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN” follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.

Men, Women & Children is currently scheduled to premiered in the Special Presentations section of the Toronto International Film Festival in September with a limited release on October 3, 2014, before opening wide October 17, 2014.



Seminal Film Series & The Twilight Zone by Tom Whalen & Dark Hall Mansion - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies

This Undead Monday, we take a comprehensive look at the awe-inspiring Seminal Film Series of Dark Hall Mansion with the release of a cool new entry in the series as well as the arrival of the first print for the much-anticipated The Twilight Zone series courtesy of artist Tom Whalen. 



Easily one of the most influential TV series ever, there is without a shadow of a doubt that The Twilight Zone have went on to inspire an entire generation of creators both in and out of the genre. Which explains our excitement upon learning that Dark Hall Mansion will be kicking off a series of prints paying homage to iconic episodes of Rod Sterling's sci-fi/horror television anthology series as a follow-up to their popular Universal’s Classic Monsters series

Similar to the Universal’s Classic Monsters series, each piece of the 10-print series will be conjured by artist Tom Whalen. With the first piece unveiled and set to be available online from 19th August, we take a first look at the much-anticipated series with Whalen's take on "Eye of the Beholder". 

Eye of the Beholder
By Tom Whalen
24″x36″ 
Regular Edition of 230

Eye of the Beholder
By Tom Whalen
24″x36″ 
Variant Edition of 70

Here's a brief excerpts from the official press release:


PRNewswire/­Dark Hall Mansion, www.DarkHallMansion.com, is thrilled and honored to reveal its latest officially licensed limited edition project and release: “The Twilight Zone.”

Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, will release a 10-print “The Twilight Zone” series focused on key classic episodes of the legendary series that redefined television and set a creative bar by which decades of writers and filmmakers still measure themselves today. The importance of “The Twilight Zone” and its unparalleled creative output and unflinching mirror on the individual and society, particularly in an era when this was simply not done, cannot be underscored. Its impact on television, films, screenwriters, directors, authors, the comics industry, and creative artists within all fields still resonates and informs every genre to this day.

Dark Hall Mansion’s officially licensed 10-print limited edition subscription screenprint series goes on sale Tuesday, August 19th, and will feature 10 classic “The Twilight Zone” episodes rendered by leading contemporary artist, Tom Whalen. The 10-print “The Twilight Zone” editions will be offered as a subscription print series with an exclusive worldwide run of only 230 Standard edition subscriptions and 70 Variant edition subscriptions. Each of the 10 individual prints will focus on one classic “The Twilight Zone” episode, each rendered in artist Tom Whalen’s inimitable and dynamic style, each measuring 18″ x 24″ and each fully screen printed. Prints will include classic episodes like “Eye of the Beholder,” “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” “Living Doll,” and “Nick of Time,” plus surprises along the way. The series will be fittingly lead off by an appropriately unsettling and slightly creepy “The Twilight Zone” episode that happens to be one of Tom’s (and his Dad’s) personal favorites, “Eye of the Beholder.”

A disturbing classic, the episode’s final imagery is arresting and unforgettable even to contemporary audiences. Tom Whalen has created a piece for “Eye of the Beholder” that is deliberate and meticulously crafted, from its “The Twilight Zone” ‘eye’ element, to its “Beholder” font, a font
that Tom noted specifically echoes a studied association with the word “beautiful,” the print’s composition is at once grounded in the reality of the episode while still subtly dissolving into an ethereal upper plane that fans will instantly recognize as Tom’s nod to the starry sky from “The Twilight Zone’s” famous opening credit sequences. The episode’s climactic scene of a patient’s terrified attempt at escaping her monstrous doctors is made all the more jarring by Tom’s expressionistic hallway and visual suggestion that one false step and her feet will simply slide into that
very land of shadow and substance.


For worldwide fans of the “Twilight Zone,” this is a very limited release
as only 230 Standard edition subscription allocations will be available-worldwide-with an even more limited allocation of just 70 Variant subscriptions available worldwide. The Standard edition subscription-which will include all 10 prints-will price at $450 and the Variant edition subscription-also including all 10 prints-and printed with striking metallic ink highlights underscoring the print series’ vintage TV aesthetic will price at $650. “The Twilight Zone” prints will be issued throughout
2014-15 per artist Tom Whalen’s scheduling, and know Tom’s very next “The Twilight Zone” print will feature a gentle little girl and her very unique and disturbing doll, “Talky Tina.”

"Talky Tina"? Sign me up already.

Apart from the first unveiling of the print for The Twilight Zone, Whalen's first print for Dark Hall Mansion's Seminal Film Series has also been revealed as a new take on "War of the Worlds". Here's a quick peek at both versions of the print.
