The War of the Worlds (Variant) by Stan & Vince. 24" x 36" screen print featuring glow-in-the-dark layer. Hand numbered. Edition of 150. Printed by D&L Screenprinting. $85
Here's what Stan & Vince had to say about the piece:

"Byron Haskin's WAR OF THE WORLDS was released 62 years ago, and even though we weren’t around at the time, this movie was made for us. We KNOW it! Byron Haskin had to know that his movie was to be aired decades later in front of our 80s teenage eyes, printing powerful, everlasting images in our brains. We're pretty sure he also knew that Mondo was going to ask us to work on a poster for this movie! To recapture the taste and flavor of H.G. Well's story put in those glorious fifties frames and make people hear the sizzling sound of the saucers’ deadly death rays. 
That's the magic we wanted to have in this poster. We wanted to put viewers back in the theatre seats where they first saw the movie, in the frame with the hero as he watches the invaders coming into the city! We wanted this poster to feel the retro-style menace of the red planet."
Above you can check out a couple concept sketches for the poster. "We tried different angles: through the eyes of the hero, and conversely the invaders; but in the end, the final composition you see wins with its vintage feel, very emblematic of the elements you find in the movie."
Please follow us on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters will be available online at a random time on Thursday, January 8th.
