Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse, has today announced a partnership with Tugg, Inc. that will bring Kinji Fukasaku’s 2000 cult classic manga adaptation Battle Royale to big screens all across the country. To celebrate, they’ve revealed a new poster designed by Scott Pilgrim artist Bryan Lee O’Malley and Mondo regular Kevin Tong. Check it out below along with its Japanese-language variant!
Battle Royale, long available in the United States only as an import DVD, has been added to Tugg’s library for fans to create their own screenings at their local theater nationwide. Additionally, for those screenings that happen, Tugg promoters will be given a quantity of Mondo’s Battle Royale posters for themselves and to be given away to attendees at the events (while supplies last). You can request a screening by clicking here.
To celebrate the film and the print, Mondo is hosting the first Tugg screening of Battle Royale as part of the opening weekend festivities at the Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park in Houston, a brand new, state-of-the art theater. The screening will take place on February 16, and tickets must be purchased here.
The ticket price of $85 includes the cost of one variant poster (edition of 225). The regular edition will be sold via MondoTees.com at a future date and will be the version used for the limited quantity of posters at subsequent Tugg screenings.
