HAIL CAESAR ScreenPrint Poster Art by Francesco Francavilla for MONDO
On sale today from Mondo: keep an eye on @mondonews feed on twitter for drop info. Here’s an excerpt from the release news on INSIDE ROCK POSTER FRAME Friday marks the release of the new Coen Brothers film and Mondo
cannot be more excited. HAIL, CAESAR! is a comedy/noir film set in the
Golden Age of Hollywood and when it came to choosing an artist, one name
immediately came to mind: Francesco Francavilla.
Francesco thrives when it comes to giving a property a period authentic
and vintage aesthetic. Setting the colorful cast of characters that
inhabit - and possibly inhibit - Eddie Mannix’s (Josh Brolin) search to
rescue legendary screen actor Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) within the
larger central image of Whitlock’s portrait is a great solution.
Francesco’s decision to frame the image with Roman flourish that mimic
film strip sprockets neatly tie it all together.
Said Francesco: “I’ve been a huge fan of Coen Brothers movies for a
while now, so when Mondo approached me asking to do a poster for their
latest film, I replied with a big ‘YES!!!!!’ People who know me know how
much I love the '40s and '50s pulp settings (Black Beetle ;) ), so the
movie set in that time period was just the extra cherry on top.”
