These top-notch ‘The Goonies’ posters are the latest pieces from the good folks over at Mondo. By James Flames, the prints are available to purchase online at a random time on Thursday, July 3rd. Follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement. The above poster has a numbered edition of 250 while the variant has an edition of 125.
The 1985 American adventure-comedy film was directed by Richard Donner, from a screenplay by Chris Columbus and a story by executive producer Steven Spielberg. James Flames had the following to say about his ‘The Goonies’ posters: “I love to tell stories with the things I draw, and the adventure of The Goonies is a hell of a big story to tell. My favorite part of any story is the peak of the set up – the part where the mood is established, the characters are coming into themselves, the scenery is starting to play a role, and it’s all at the cusp of breaking loose. And if it all stopped right there, your imagination has everything it needs to start coming up with all sorts of crazy scenarios on it’s own. Man, I love that part. This scene felt like such a natural place to stop for a second and remember how freaking awesome it was that these four best friends set out in their overwhelmingly large and intimidating world to follow a treasure map and have the adventure of a lifetime.”
