Fargo and The Strain are getting the Mondo poster treatment, courtesy of the ATX Television Festival and FX. The new posters have been presented in anticipation of the world premiere episode for The Strain and the ninth episode screening of Fargo at the Austin festival this weekend. While the Fargo poster above offers a familiar enough scene for those of us who've seen what's aired of the series so far, The Strain posters double as a bit of teasy bonus material as we await the arrival of the horror series.
The above Fargo poster gives us a look at the snowy Minnesota backdrop and the open trunk of Lorne Malvo's car. Or the car he was driving anyway... The 18" x 24" Fargo poster was done by artist Matt Taylor, and will go on sale for the very reasonable price of $35 at MondoTees.com on Tuesday, June 17, the same day the series finale airs on FX. Just a heads up that Mondo posters tend to sell out quickly as quantities are typically limited.
There are two versions of the Mondo posters for The Strain, both of which focus on the ring-like red eclipse design we've been seeing in the promotions for the horror series from Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and Carlton Cuse.
While the above poster shows off one head with its fanged mouth open and one of those wormy looking things coming out of it, this one gives us multiple heads...
Phantom City Creative is the artist behind both of these posters, which are 18" x 24". They go on sale for $35 a piece on Friday, July 11, just two days ahead of The Strain's premiere date at FX.
The Strain stars Corey Stoll as Dr. Eph Goodweather, the head of the CDC's Canary project. He and his team are called upon to investigate a dark and mysterious occurrence on an airplane. The series eventually focuses on an ancient vampiric virus outbreak. The cast also includes David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Mia Maestro, Ben Hyland, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Sean Astin and Francis Capra. Check out the trailer for the series here. The Strain infects FX on Sunday, July 13.
