Anyone else notice edition sizes that do not match the run size online with these guys sometimes? or the fact the VIP variant links stay live forever despite how those are advertised? Kind of soured me on Mad ducks but I really dig the third man print AJ Frena did for them

Today, Mad Duck is releasing a new officially licensed screen print movie poster for the 1989 Cult Classic film, "Society", with art by Matt Ryan Tobin!

Image
Beach Edition - 24X36, 6 color screen print, hand numbered, Run of 125, $65

Image
Party Edition - 24X36, 6 color screen print, hand numbered, Run of 75, $85

Both editions will go on sale today, Wednesday, September 20th at 12PM Eastern time at https://www.madduckposters.com/ !

Directer Brian Yuzna describes the movie as being about "fear and paranoia in Beverly Hills". Matt Ryan Tobin had the following to say about the movie and his design:

"SOCIETY is a completely original, tongue in cheek, thought-provoking 80's gem...and its absolutely batshit crazy.
So when Mad Duck reached out to me to do a poster for it, I said yes without hesitation.

Upon more research into the film I learned that director Brian Yuzna was heavily inspired by the work of Dali.
As soon as I learned this, Dali's "In Voluptas Mors" came to mind...and fully inspired this 80's redux/homage to his incredibly legendary and iconic work.
I wanted to capture the era of the 1980's and 80's poster art itself but also create something elegant, statuesque and upon closer look...grotesque.

Those that have seen the film can probably understand what the relevance of this piece is to the film and what it suggests
both on the surface and beneath the surface. For those who have not seen the film...you should do so. Its a trip."

Mad Duck putting out another Hitchcock print by Jonathan Burton (this guy is great) for Rear Window. On sale 10/4 at 12pm Eastern Time.

"Jonathan had the following to say about the movie and the inspiration for his design:"

"Stylistically Rear Window uses Edward Hopper as an inspiration where peering into other people lives, particularly through lit windows before the blinds are pulled down, gives us an insight into a characters loneliness or reveals dysfunctional couples unable to communicate. Voyeuristically we see the neighbourhood through the eyes of Jeff but the film also turns our eyes onto his life and the failing of his relationship with Lisa. I wanted to show that double voyeurism in the poster where we are looking at their flaws as Jeff, being more interested in the goings on of his neighbours, pays little attention to his beautiful and stylish girlfriend who is waiting for him to take notice of her."

Really excellent work on the RW. Typography, colorway, likeness . . . everything is so good. Glad (but surprised) it didn't sell out quickly, since I totally forgot the drop time. Thanks to Mad Duck for coordinating this release!

Jonathan Burton is underrated. At least everyone who actually wants one can get one.

Yes they were. Art was finalized maybe a week before the drop hit

Hi,
Just wondering if anyone has received their "The Trouble with Harry" by David Merveille yet?

Got these today. The Trouble with Harry prints are some of the best print jobs I've seen as far as colors that really pop. Great work.
