PF&A 6   PF&A 5

This weekend Disney released some new posters advertising the sequel to its popular animated film Planes, titled Planes: Fire & Rescue.  Taking on an entirely new look, these new posters are pretty stunning.  Inspired by well-known Art Deco posters from the National Park Service and Department of the Interior from the 1930s and 1940s that we discussed previously at borg.com here, we think these are better than any special limited Mondo edition posters we’ve seen.  Click on each image for a detailed view.

IMAX 1201 banner

At the 12:01 a.m. IMAX premiere screening of Marvel’s Iron Man 3, on May 3, 2013, IMAX will be giving away limited edition Mondo Iron Man 3 prints.  The artwork, created by Detective Comics and Green Arrow: Year One comic book artist Jock, is a collaboration between Marvel Studios, IMAX, and Mondo, the Austin, Texas-based limited edition poster company.  According to Walt Disney Studios, owner of the Marvel properties, the Iron Man 3 print will be the last entry in the IMAX 12:01 poster series–a series that began in 2012 with alternate poster concepts to promote the films.  No idea what a Mondo poster is?  They are only released in limited editions and tend to sell out fast, and are created by a myriad of artists.  Here is the Iron Man 3 poster to be given away in this last IMAX 12:01 giveaway:
