If you think Mondo is the only game in town when it comes to fully licensed limited edition posters and prints for classic (and modern) movies, you need to start looking a little more closely. Odd City Entertainment has risen in the ranks and quietly made a name for themselves over the past few months with fantastic releases like James Fosdike's "Trick 'r Treat" print. Like Mondo, Odd City Entertainment is based in Austin, Texas and strives to work with some of the very best artists in the world.
Today, MTV has the exclusive news that Odd City's latest print will drop on Wednesday, November 20 (at a random time, as per usual) and it's quite possibly their best release yet. Sheffield, UK native graphic designer and artist Matt Ferguson was tasked with bringing Bryan Singer's 1995 modern masterpiece "The Usual Suspects to a colorful 12" x 36" canvas. Ferguson, perhaps best known for his work on "Marvel's The Avengers" Blu-ray collection and promotional posters, loved the idea of working alongside Odd City Entertainment founder Roman Morales to find just the right look for Singer's classic film.
It's not rare that you see a poster mix-up in a foreign market, where the cover from a DVD of an entirely different movie gets used as the poster for a new movie, but the switcheroo that happened with "Thor: The Dark World" is of a very special variety.
According to a reddit post, this fan poster for the upcoming Marvel sequel ended up in a Shanghai movie theater, most likely pleasing a very specific set of fan fiction writers.

We've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. We need all of you— ugh, you know the rest. Look at these big "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" character posters from Total Film.
The posters come as we are getting more and more eager to see what Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team will be up to when they return in December and hit the Big Apple for the first time.

In a bit of unfortunate timing, the same day author Tom Clancy passed away at age 66, the first poster for Kenneth Branagh's reboot of Clancy's most famous character, Jack Ryan has hit the 'nets.
Featuring a moody Chris Pine holding a gun, and what looks like a Russian city or possibly a Christmas tree village in the background, the poster doesn't tell us a whole lot. That said, with the first trailer hitting tomorrow at 7:30pm ET, here's what we're hoping to find out from Mr. Ryan's latest adventure:
Happy New "Hobbit" Trailer Day!
Frankly, these days don't happen enough, but when they do they're always great at rousing our interest in the "Lord of the Rings" prequel trilogy from Peter Jackson and company. The latest trailer even gives us what the hordes on Tumblr have been dying for: a quick listen to Benedict Cumberbatch voicing Smaug the dragon!
The lengthy trailer is our best look yet at the second installment, which is only two months and two weeks away. (Yes, we're counting. What's it to you?) How are you feeling about "The Desolation of Smaug"? If you're old enough to remember 2002, how does this compare to your anticipation for "The Two Towers"?
Take a look at the new trailer, along with four more new banners, after the jump! And let us know your thoughts in the comments below and on Twitter.
It's been almost four months since the first trailer for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" appeared before our eyes, and since then the summer movie season distracted us from the fact that the second installment of Peter Jackson's prequel trilogy was quickly approaching.
And here we are, nearly two months away from "The Desolation of Smaug," and it's time to get excited for a return trip to Middle-earth. The middle portion of J.R.R. Tolkien contains some of the book's most iconic imagery, including the spiders of Mirkwood Forest and Smaug's cave of gold. There's also Gandalf's side story, which can play out at any speed Jackson and his writers desire.
We'll get another look at the second installment tomorrow, when the second trailer debuts at 9 a.m. ET. MTV News will have the trailer as soon as it goes live, so stick right here. Until then, enjoy the new banner, which teases trouble in the woods for Bilbo and the gang.
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opens on December 13.
FROM NEXT MOVIE
The internet flipped over the last set of "Seinfeld"-inspired movie posters from Next Movie, so we're happy to bring you news that the next set of posters is just as good.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if all those movies mentioned in "Seinfeld" (not "Schindler's List" or "Home Alone") were actually real? Once again, Next Movie has imagined movie posters with real stars.
As the fall movie season approaches, we're starting to look forward to finally seeing all of those great films that premiered at this year's Sundance, including "Kill Your Darlings."
"Kill Your Darlings" stars Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan among others as two icons of the beat generation, Allen Ginsberg and Lucien Carr, respectively.
Both young actors have received raves for their performances and slip the striking poster in yellow and black imagery.

For their final act of what is now known as the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost are heading back home to grab a drink with their mates.
That's the story at the surface of "The World's End," the newest movie from the creative team behind "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," but that's before the killer robots get involved. Like the other two entries in the trilogy, there's a lot more going on than the main characters, played again by Frost and Pegg, immediately know.
To celebrate the release of "The World's End," MTV Movies Blog is proud to bring you an exclusive motion poster that does a great job at getting across the insanity of this film.
