So this is interesting:
There's a variant edition that will be available only as part of the opening weekend festivities at the new Alamo Drafthouse in Vintage Park, Houston (tickets here!), but if you're able to get a Tugg screening off the ground in your home town, Mondo will include copies of the regular edition for you and to give to attendees! So not only do you get a great, rarely seen (theatrically) movie in your town, you get a cool poster for your trouble.

The way Tugg works is that you request a screening (at this page here) and then attempt to pre-sell enough tickets to make the screening happen. If you pass the threshold, the screening occurs, the posters arrive and everybody's happy!
So does that means Mondo could have an open-run regular based on who succeeds with local showings?
When stressed about getting a drop, just remember: it will decay into the same organic matter as inevitably as your rotting corpse no matter how much museum glass you put in front of it.

A comma makes all the difference...
I think it was more my rather inappropriate use of a preposition to end a sentence.

I really like that poster but its not one I could realistically see ever going up on a wall.

A great line you may not have heard before:

Vincent: you know what they call the Hunger Games in Paris?

Jules: what'd they call it?

Vincent: Battle Royale with Cheese.

"Mondo Mystery Movie: Part 2"

Spoiler Alert: Its Jurassic Park
God I hope not. I'm tired of the same set of films getting prints. there are other films out there besides, NoES, Jaws, LOTR, BTTF, JP, IG, etc.

JP only has a 127 minute runtime and the MMM says it's 134 minute runtime.
While IMDB lists a shorter run time, if you search for Jurassic Park 134 minutes on google, you'll find a LOT of references to The Lost World being 134 minutes long.

While I'm not too turned on by it, could you imagine if it had an Aaron Horkey poster to accompany his first one? BOIOIOIOIOIOING!

I haven't noticed the site having issues since the first announcement lol looks like this is taking longer than expected to sell out.

Print aside, I didn't really like the movie. I couldn't believe how they counted down each character. Painful.

I was reading somewhere its a "while supplies last" offer for the screenings that are able to get off the ground.
