GET OUT by Francesco Francavilla 24"x36" Screen Print, Edition of 250 Printed by D&L Screenprinting - $50
From the trailers I knew GET OUT was a movie that I had to go see as
soon it was in the theaters. And I did, on its opening weekend. The
movie was so good that I couldn’t think of anything else once back home.
As I do for everything that I really, REALLY like, I decided to do a
quick poster art for it, and went with a minimalist approach, trying to
not spoil the movie for those who hadn’t seen it yet. I posted the art
with my 2 thumbs up review on twitter and had director/writer Jordan
Peele himself replying to the post and saying how much he loved the
concept. Someone else suggested to turn this in a Mondo poster (given my
relation with Mondo) and Peele said he was totally up for it. Of course
Mondo was happy too cause they loved the movie as much as I did. So
yeah, now you have this poster because of the movie being so good and
the magic of social media that makes the world way smaller than it
really is :)
These posters will be available at a random time today (5/23) on
mondotees.com - follow @MondoNews feed on Twitter for the drop
MONDO’s press release: Jordan Peele’s GET OUT is an absolute gut punch of a film. Not
only is it one of the best and most important movies to come out so far
in 2017, we’d rank it among the top movies of the last several years.
The film tells the story of an interracial couple, Chris and Rose, as
they travel to Rose’s family estate to spend a weekend with her parents.
Things get increasingly dark as the visit goes on and more sinister
discoveries come to light about her family’s past.
excited to have two incredible posters available for the film by
Francesco Francavilla and Jay Shaw, each rife with rich subtext, themes
and imagery, available tomorrow in celebration of the home video
release. Francesco’s poster features Chris trapped in the vast expanse
of the sunken place, while Jay takes a visceral approach in illustrating
themes touched upon in the film.
The fact that GET OUT was
Jordan Peele’s directorial debut is all the more impressive and we
absolutely cannot wait to see what other stories he has to share with
the world. GET OUT is available on Blu-Ray/home video tomorrow and we
highly recommend picking it up and watching it immediately.
