Well, you can throw out all your dumb, stupid posters for this year's Oscar nominees, because here come some better ones. Like Gallery1988 did earlier in the month, Mondo is releasing some designer prints based on the latest crop of Academy Award contenders, and they'll be available for sale here starting Sunday. Right now, they've only revealed designs for ParaNorman, Les Misérables, and The Master (latter two below), but more will reportedly show up for order during the Oscar telecast, and as you can tell from the current batch, Mondo is thankfully taking cues from more than just the Best Picture category. So there's still a chance for a poster inspired by Naomi Watts in The Impossible. Hope lives.
