Mondo Poster Premiere: William Friedkin's 'Sorcerer' Gets the Jay Shaw Treatment

Mondo Poster Premiere: William Friedkin's 'Sorcerer' Gets the Jay Shaw Treatment

Jun 04, 2014

William Friedkin's Sorcerer is one of those movies that, despite being a bold and truly epic piece of filmmaking, seemed to be swallowed a bit by time. Thankfully Warner Bros. recently got together with the Exorcist and French Connection director to liberate his movie from the legal woes that kept it buried, and let him do a complete restoration of the 1977 film about a group of rugged men from all over the world taking on a deadly mission to transport unstable dynamite through the jungle.

The result is a gorgeous new Blu-ray for the film that's absolutely worth picking up, but this is also a movie of such vision and scale that you truly should see it on the big screen. And if you live in Austin, Texas, you can do just that this weekend. The Alamo Drafthouse is screening the film on Friday and Saturday (June 6 and 7, respectively), with William Friedkin in attendance to do a Q&A. But that's not all!

They've also had Mondo and artist Jay Shaw cook up a new Sorcerer poster, which will be available for sale at both screenings. And it is our privilege to premiere it online ahead of the screening:

Artist: Jay Shaw
Edition of 190
16" x 24"
Price: $35

Also worth pointing out is that the Drafthouse will be doing a screening of Friedkin's To Live and Die in L.A. on Saturday June 7, after Sorcerer. Friedkin will be around for a Q&A at that event as well, so do check it out if you can.
