Thank you.

2019 is really shaping up to be the year of Tippi Hedren holding a pencil.

I don't mind the art, in general, but it is just way too modern for Hitchcock/The Birds for my taste. I'm glad others enjoy it though. Do you.

It might be their best print, which isn't saying much. It's far from the best Mondo Birds print. Even the "other" Durieux is better.

This is a given.

I like this new one, but nothing can top the WBYK...

...which isn't even top five WBYK prints.

You are out of your got damn mind. It’s the best birds print. Neither LD can drymounts with it. WBYK releases are always exciting. You never know what you’re going to get. Almost everyone else on their roster plays it so safe. If I picked an artist and a property, you’d have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to be getting. WBYK usually comes up with some extremely creative/outside the box approaches to making a movie poster.


I love Dans work and it’s nice to see him getting a release but all I can see SWC with that birds poster.


Ps wish the folks at mondo knew hitch did more than Psycho/Birds/Vertigo/Rear Window. ISO REBECCA POSTERS

Sandlot where?

It's definitely the best The Birds poster Mondo has released in March 2019, that’s for sure.

Yeah, it definitely seems too modern for the movie. But I also kinda like that about it. It's got the sort of anachronism (probably not the right word) that I appreciate in an alternative movie poster. I can dig it.

That bird's eye on the left of the poster is too distracting. Makes her look like the Toxic Avenger with a bunch of birds in front of his face.

it's like it wants to be all the SWC x Raus x Ortiz that it can be.

And I agree with others on WBYK . . . best Birds and really one of the most exciting on Mondo's roster because like Rambo said, you never know what innovative take they are going to have on a poster. I put Ruth and Woodson up there too because I feel like they often mix it up as well.

Not my cup of tea on the Bird poster but I don't think its bad... but I am curious what how the color palette is going to look like screenprinted.

Seems like it'll be easy to turn into a big brown blob if they give it the Lotay treatment.

As is tradition, we get a Mondo Hitchcock release and then we get Rambo campaigning for Rebecca prints so I must do my usual: THIS PLEASE comment!
