Dork Art: Mondo's Iron Man 3
As they've done with every Marvel movie a week out, Mondo has unveiled their Iron Man 3 poster...or posters. The above one comes to us from artist Martin Ansin, measures 24 x 36 & will set you back $50 (the variant running the typical $75). The poster featured directly below is from Phantom City Creative, measures 24 x 36, and costs a pretty $45. Frankly, I'm not in love with either of them. In fact, I think the IMAX Midnight Release print seen at the very bottom has them both trumped. The general problem with these pre-release posters is that the art stems only from the trailer imagery. They feel more like teasers than full-on celebrations of the films. You look at the prints Mondo did for The Monster Squad or Battle Royale, and those images encompass the whole film. These are little more than press releases.
