New FROZEN II Poster by Tom Whalen!

Tomorrow we’re heading into the unknown with our friends at Cyclops Print Works & Tom Whalen and his gorgeous poster for Disney’s FROZEN II.

FROZEN took the world by storm when it was unleashed on the world in 2013, and six years later, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven are back in one of the most visually stunning films of the year in FROZEN II. We worked with Tom Whalen on a poster for the first film in 2014, and we are excited to have had the opportunity to again work with Tom on a follow up poster for this wonderful sequel. We love these characters and are huge fans of the film, so this is one we could not wait to share with you. 

FROZEN II by Tom Whalen
24" x 36" Screenprinted Poster, Edition of 370
Printed by DL Screenprinting
Expected to Ship in May 2020
Ships to Addresses in the United States, Puerto Rico, & Canada
$60

From Tom, "The FROZEN poster that I designed back in 2014 has consistently been one of my most-requested prints, so I was jazzed when Mondo asked me for my take on FROZEN II. My goal for this design was to maintain the open, airy feel of the first poster, while giving the characters them a bit more depth and volume that the evolution of my style has allowed. I chose to design this as a floating composition and steer away from the color-to-the-edge approach of the original poster. It was a treat to revisit this crew of characters, and I can only hope to spend some time with them again in a few years.”

This is also the first poster that will release on THE DROP, the latest addition to our newly updated web store: mondoshop.com. PLEASE NOTE that this poster, and other limited edition items will no longer debut on the home page, they will land exclusively on THE DROP at it’s pre-designated time. If you have any questions, be sure to check out
mondoshop.com and it’s FAQ page, or this instructional video from Pete Kompüder to familiarize yourself about THE DROP

FROZEN II by Tom Whalen will be available Tuesday February 18, 2020 at 11AM (CT) on THE DROP at mondoshop.com/collections/the-drop.

Music Weekly: DEATH STRANDING ORIGINAL SCORE 3XLP!

This week we are honored to present the premiere vinyl pressing of Ludvig Forssell's original Score album to Hideo Kojima's masterpiece DEATH STRANDING. We can't believe it's been over 3 years since we released our first DEATH STRANDING SINGLE upon the release of the first trailer. Not only did the game live up to the expectations, but the game's music is some of our favorite of the decade.

As usual, new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondoshop.com. And Keep on Keeping on!

NEW THIS WEEK 

DEATH STRANDING - Original Video Game Score 3XLP. Music by Ludvig Forssell. Original artwork by Max Löffler. Liner notes by Ludvig Forssell and Hideo Kojima. Mondo exclusive pressed on 3X 180 Gram Splatter Vinyl. NOTE: THIS ITEM IS A PRE-ORDER. ALL ORDERS CONTAINING THIS ALBUM DO NOT SHIP UNTIL APRIL 2020. Ships Worldwide. $45 

Mondo is proud to present Ludvig Forssell's original score to Hideo Kojima's 2019 masterpiece DEATH STRANDING.

The enigmatic, haunting and beautifully rendered tale of a man tasked with re-connecting a fragmented America in the fallout of an extinction level event is as massive in scope, as it is in tone. But composer Ludvig Forssell has taken Kojima's complex vision and crafted a score worthy of the game's intricate design.

Sci-fi synth, pounding percussion and swirling strings collide with choirs in beautiful and discordant ways as you travel the country in search of connection, while avoiding the spectres that also occupy the land. It all comes to a together with the beautiful BB's Theme, a haunting lullaby, sung by Jenny Plant that would surely be Oscar Nominated for Best Song, if only this were a movie.

This score album is pressed on 3X 180 Gram Colored vinyl discs, and features liner notes by composer Ludvig Forssell and creator and game director Hideo Kojima and all new artwork by Max Löffler.

An additional album, featuring the songs from DEATH STRANDING by Low Roar, Silent Poets and more is coming later in 2020.

Mondo’s Creative Director of Toys and Collectibles, Brock Otterbacher: “He’s been many things over his many years- a symbol of the horrors of war, nature's wrath, a hero, a villain, and even the collection of angry souls taking revenge on the living. One thing he's always been, however, is beloved across many generations of fans, children and adults alike. 

"The King of the Monsters, comes to Mondo's Gallery for a kaiju-sized show featuring the city stomping giant, along with many of his friends and foes. Dozens of fantastic artists bring their appreciation to the various eras of Toho's monster movies, and I, as a huge fan myself, feel there's something for every kind of Godzilla fan.

We are honored to present the soundtrack to the HULU Original Series HIGH FIDELITY - premiering today, Valentine's Day.

NEW WEBSITE!

Over the last year or so, we’ve been quietly working on a project in the shadows that we are just about ready to unleash. On Friday, we are smashing the big red button and going live with a total refresh of our website! We have been listening to your suggestions, and after tons of research and testing (and more testing), we’re excited to deliver you a website that we hope will bring the best online Mondo experience possible.

The first obvious change is the name: mondotees.com is now mondoshop.com. As much as we love explaining, “No, t-e-e-s dot com,” we felt it was time for something a little easier to communicate, and that felt representative of who we are today. But don’t worry, we didn’t drop the domain name, so you can feel free to type mondotees.com into your browser and you’ll still arrive safely at your destination.

As far as the rest of the site, we have rebuilt it from the ground up, keeping all the stuff you know, but adding new features like enhanced search filters, laying a solid foundation that allows for deeper content and behind-the-scenes videos, as well as highly curated collections. But perhaps the biggest new feature is The Drop - a dedicated space for our limited edition stuff that makes it easier to cart and check out. Our posters will likely be the main thing that lives in The Drop, but you may also find other product types popping in from time to time (we will let you know when/if something is releasing in The Drop, so don’t worry about that). Speaking of time: We’re killing random drop times - The Drop features a countdown clock so you know exactly when the next release is happening…

What will The Drop look like? How will it work? Check out the video below.

This has been a long time coming, and it’s something we’re pretty excited about. There’s always more we can do, so this is really just step one. Over the coming months we will continue to improve upon and dial in based on the foundation laid here. We hope you like it and will join us.

Sincerely,
Your Friends at Mondo

Music Weekly: THE LODGE LP + VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE - BLOODLINES 2XLP!

Hi Everyone, this week we are thrilled to bring you the original soundtrack to THE LODGE on Death Waltz Recording Co. One of the best horror films we saw on the festival circuit last year is finally getting a wide release thanks to our friends at NEON, we are also super pumped to bring you a digital release of COME TO DADDY (An expanded vinyl release will follow later this month including the score by Karl Steven as well as an entire side of killer needle drops from the film not available on streaming!).

COME TO DADDY stars Elijah Wood and is the directorial debut from Ant Timpson (noted producer of DEATHGASM, TURBO KID & THE GREASY STRANGLER). It’s incredibly smart, funny and filled with enough gore to keep the most jaded horehound interested. It was a huge hit on the festival circuit last year and is in theaters and on-demand now courtesy of our friends at SABAN. We can’t recommend this film enough.

If you loved HEREDITARY, then THE LODGE is a film you have to check out. It’s a psychological family drama with impressive horror elements and a creepy vibe throughout that not only keeps you guessing but delivers tons of chills. The score is by Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans (THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE & THE OUTSIDER) and cements them as two of the most unique composers working today.

Check out our latest video unboxing of THE LODGE, to see this record in its full glory.

Last but not least we have a new distributed title by our friends at Milan, the soundtrack to the 2004 cult-classic game VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE - BLOODLINES.

As usual, new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com.

NEW THIS WEEK

THE LODGE - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Original score by Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans. Pressed on 180 Gram Bloody Snow colored vinyl. Housed inside a screen printed poly-sleeve. Limited to 300 copies. NOTE: This item Ships in March 2020. Ships Worldwide. $30

It's difficult being a stepmother at any time, so it's going to be super-hard when your predecessor commits suicide and your partner has to be somewhere else, leaving the two whippersnappers behind for you to look after. This is what happens to Grace (Riley Keough, HOLD THE DARK) in THE LODGE, the unsettling film from Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala (GOODNIGHT MOMMY). Scoring Grace's ordeal is Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, who previously brought screaming sonic landscapes to THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE and THE GIFT. With THE LODGE, they present a soundtrack that is often sparse and minimalist, but no less disturbing for that.

"Beginning with a distant droning that sounds unsettlingly close to ghostly whalesong, the score doesn't find the need to launch itself at you with all its fury; instead, it wants you to know how patient it is. That it'll wait. Bensi and Jurriaans slowly layer the textures, inviting metallic tones that sound like tools and wooden percussion over murky string melodies, the closest they want to get to whatever normal is. Low child choral voices, idiosyncratic and buzzing violins, all of these push to increase the claustrophobia, so that when the vibrations flit from channel to channel as they get closer and closer, you're not even sure what's terrifying you anymore. All you know is that it's in THE LODGE. With you." - Charlie Brigden, Film music critic, critiquefantastique.com.

Our webstore exclusive is pressed on 180 Gram Bloody Snow colored vinyl, housed inside a screenprinted poly-sleeve, strictly limited to 300 copies only. (Retail variant coming soon)



COME TO DADDY - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK. Original score by Karl Steven. Artwork by Gary Pullin. Streaming now.

Currently available on all streaming platforms COME TO DADDY’s score by Karl Steven is super impressive from the start, it delivers plenty of atmosphere and touches on trip Hop, '80s synth scores, '70s Giallo and traditional orchestral scores, it fuses organic instruments with synthetic keys and funky hypnotic bass. An expanded vinyl version will follow in March but for now, enjoy this great score through your favourite digital platform.

DISTRIBUTED TITLES

VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE - BLOODLINES- Original Soundtrack 2XLP. Distributed by Milan. Music by Rik Schaffer. Featuring 17 Cues from the game. Pressed on Transparent Red and Black Smoke vinyl. Expected to Ship in 7-10 Business Days. Ships Worldwide. $32

VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE - BLOODLINES is the 2004 cult-classic role playing game from Troika Games. Based on the White Wolf tabletop roleplaying game VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE, BLOODLINES follows a character who is killed and subsequently revived as a fledgling vampire. The game depicts the fledgling’s journey through early 21st century Los Angeles as they navigate the grimy underworld of vampire politics in the City of Angels. In the ensuing years since BLOODLINES released, it has been embraced for its world-class writing, narrative design and production, and is considered one of the greatest roleplaying games of all time. A sequel is scheduled for release by Paradox Interactive in early 2020.

The score to VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE - BLOODLINES was composed by Rik Schaffer (Elder Scrolls Online). A masterpiece of gaming composition, Schaffer’s sinister score perfectly invokes the atmosphere of a darkly imagined early 2000s Los Angeles where paranormal danger lurks down every alley and behind every door. Fifteen years after the game’s original debut, Milan Records is honored to be releasing the score to VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE - BLOODLINES for the first time, featuring audio completely remastered by Schaffer for this release. The music to BLOODLINES has never sounded better.

New FARAWAY GALAXY Poster by Scott C!

This week we’re thrilled to release a poster for an all-time classic, STAR WARS, by one of our favorite artists (and human, too): Scott C!

Titled FARAWAY GALAXY, this poster is Scott's love letter to a film that inspired a generation and chronicles nearly every beat and character imaginable from the film. We've been working with Scott and our friends at Acme Archives, who we've partnered with on the release, on this poster for a few years and it's a real pleasure to finally be able to share it with you. If you're familiar with Scott's work, it's lovingly produced in watercolor and usually released as high quality giclee prints. We wanted this one to be a little different, and for the first time, Scott's artwork will be offered as an 11-color screenprint! We're incredibly proud of this one, and hope you like it as much as we do.

FARAWAY GALAXY by Scott C.
24" x 36" Screenprinted Poster
TIMED EDITION - Available until 2/9 at 11:59 PM (CT)
Printed by DL Screenprinting
Expected to Ship in May 2020
Ships Worldwide
$100

From Scott, “Every square inch of that movie inspired who I am today and the paintings and stories I create. Every character in that film meant something to me, even the characters passing by in the background. It is incredible to me that a film would make that much of an impression on people that fans collectively remember that there was a wolfman and a praying mantis in the bar. I have always wanted to create a painting that paid homage to every one of those characters. That is what this painting means to me. I wanted to include every Cantina patron, every X Wing pilot and Jawa. The ships were all characters to me, so it was important that they were welcomed in the family. It became quite a party, this painting. It is a place I have always wanted to live within. It was a dream realized, my friends, and I invite you to join me in this world.

FARAWAY GALAXY by Scott C. will be available from 12PM (CT) on Thursday February 6th until 11:59PM (CT) Sunday February 9th. Be sure to keep an eye on our social media for any updates and on sale information.

Music Weekly: DOLEMITE IS MY NAME LP + JOJO RABBIT LP!

This week we are celebrating some of our favorite awards contenders with the premiere physical release of Scott Bomar's score to the Netflix Original DOLEMITE IS MY NAME, as well as Michael Giacchino's original score to one of our favorite films of the year JOJO RABBIT (courtesy of our dear friends at Hollywood Records).

As usual, new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT).

NEW THIS WEEK

DOLEMITE IS MY NAME - Music From the Netflix Film LP. Music by Scott Bomar. Featuring performances by Craig Robbinson, Eddie Murphy and DaVine Joy Randolph. Pressed on 180 Gram Purple Galaxy vinyl. Also available on 180 Gram Black vinyl. NOTE: THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. ALL ORDERS CONTAINING THIS ITEM WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL APRIL 30th 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

Dolemite is his name and rappin’ & tappin’ is his game! Eddie Murphy’s 15-year-old pet project about Rudy Ray Moore is absolutely one of the best feel good films in recent memory. Scott Bomar's soundtrack is a loving homage to 1970’s funk and Blaxploitation scores that sounds contemporary and fresh rather than just leaning on the past. It’s fun, reverential and funky as all hell. Bomar has an incredible feel for funk and soul and it absolutely shines here. This vinyl edition features the full score plus tracks sung by Eddie Murphy, Craig Robinson & Da’Vine Joy Randolph. You can listen to the full score over on Spotify thanks to our friends at Milan Records right here.

New STEAMBOAT WILLIE Poster by JJ Harrison!

STEAMBOAT WILLIE, the 1928 debut of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, remains one of Disney's most enduring and iconic short films, even today. Finding an original take nearly a century later can be difficult. We brought in one of our favorite artists, JJ Harrison, and he pulled off the feat magnificently, giving new life to a legendarily familiar scene. Beautifully presented in full color as well as black and white, we hope you like this one as much as we do.

STEAMBOAT WILLIE by JJ Harrison
18" x 24"Screenprinted Poster, Edition of 225
Printed by Lady Lazarus
Expected to Ship in May 2020
Ships to Addresses in the United States, Canada, & Puerto Rico

STEAMBOAT WILLIE (Variant) by JJ Harrison

Expected to Ship in May 2020
Ships to Addresses in the United States, Canada, & Puerto Rico
$65

From JJ: "My approach to illustrating a piece meant to honor anything beloved, especially something as iconic as STEAMBOAT WILLIE, begins with treating the source material with reverence before building anything new. As fate would have it, when Mondo rang me up about this project, I was in the middle of reading a Disney book about Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Reading through the early Disney history and each of their pivotal short films, something that struck me was the illustrated posters. Although the cartoons were silvertone, the posters were full of vibrant colors and very well-designed. Immediately, I knew I wanted to make a poster for Steamboat Willie that was indicative of the era that film was made. I didn't want to go the easy route and just put Mickey behind the ship wheel. There's a hilarious moment in the cartoon when Mickey snags Minnie with a crane hook and that was the springboard for the idea of the poster: a remix of the proud fisherman posing with his catch on the docks. I sketched it out and it made me laugh and laugh. Hopefully, we've wound up with a poster that fans of the film can get a kick out of while still commemorating Mickey's wonderful legacy."

STEAMBOAT WILLIE by JJ Harrison will go on sale Thursday January 30th at a random time. Be sure to keep your eyes on our social media for any updates and on sale information.

New Distro Books from Arrow Video!

This month in books, we have all eight of the titles that our good friends at Arrow Video have released. For the uninitiated, Arrow Video have been releasing the ultimate home video editions of some of our favorite films for many years now. More recently, they decided to put their extraordinary talents to use creating beautiful and incredibly informative books about films and filmmakers that have been largely ignored by mainstream film studies.

Have you spent literal hours trying to find a book that treats THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT with the respect it deserves? Have you struggled to find a book that covers Meiko Kaji’s legendary cult films and her singing career? Well, your long search is over. Grab these incredible books while you can (and at some of the best prices in the US!). We promise you won’t regret it.

Unchained Melody: The Films of Meiko Kaji - By Tom Mes. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

Meiko Kaji - Queen of the Japanese Action Film! With such iconic roles as Lady Snowblood and Female Prisoner Scorpion she defined a decade of cult cinema, creating an archetype of female strength that was equal parts ferocious and mysterious. Devoting plenty of space to her star-making turns as Scorpion and Lady Snowblood, Unchained Melody: The Films of Meiko Kaji goes beyond the movies that made her name. This book traces her career from its earliest beginnings as a teen model and tomboyish basketball fanatic to Kaji's critically-lauded and versatile performances for master directors including Kinji Fukasaku and Kon Ichikawa. Author Tom Mes also investigates Kaji's acting work in television and the singing career that would eventually introduce her to a whole new, international audience as the musical cornerstone to Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL. Tom Mes is the author of books on cult Japanese filmmakers Takashi Miike and Shinya Tsukamoto and was one of the founders of the Midnighteye website, the world's go-to website for information on Japanese cinema.


GHOST IN THE SHELL - By Andrew Osmond. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

A science-fiction classic that was largely overlooked on release, GHOST IN THE SHELL has grown in stature with the support of such Hollywood fans as James Cameron and the Wachowskis, and in 2017 was controversially remade as a live-action spectacular, starring Scarlett Johansson. Anime expert Andrew Osmond focuses on the original 1995 film, tracing the paths of the Japanese talents who came together to make it, including the visionary and maverick director, Mamoru Oshii, as well as the original manga creator, Masamune Shirow, and how their different sensibilities came together. Other chapters look at the film's unusual international co-production with the UK's Manga Entertainment; discuss the figure of Kusanagi, the film's iconic cyborg heroine who's both a James Bond-style killer and a contemplative philosopher; examine GHOST IN THE SHELL's debts to BLADE RUNNER and Japan's tradition of robot fantasies; and ask if it's really a ''cyberpunk'' film, as it's so often labelled.


THE HITCHER - By Alexandra Heller-Nicholas. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

Robert Harmon's 1986 film THE HITCHER is a complex beast: reviled at the time of its release, it has been adored in the long term as one of the most intoxicating, unrelenting highway cult films ever made. Starring Rutger Hauer in the title role whose alluring villainy would give his turn as BLADE RUNNER's Roy Batty a run for its money, THE HITCHER - both the film and the character - is simultaneously of its time and of the now, a film about the real and the mythic, and a film that challenges our assumptions about masculinity and femininity. Its horrors unfold as THE HITCHER tracks and tortures the film's protagonists across the highways of Nowhere USA, and the film reveals a tangle of contradictions: it is, at times, simultaneously dense, shallow, obvious, subtle, absurd and deeply intelligent. The critical paths into THE HITCHER that this book explores are rich and plentiful, and through an exploration of its origins and production history, a close analysis of the film itself and a consideration of the immediate fallout following its release and its longer legacies, this book celebrates one of the greatest highway horror movies ever made.


THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT - By Russ Gomm. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

As the Millennium approached, horror was becoming an unusual commodity. Low budget horror films flooded the home video market while their big budget counterparts took hold at the box office. It seemed that a balance could not be found that would please everyone. In the final months of 1999, horror was saved by a film that became a turning point in many aspects including film production, film marketing and film distribution. One film was a revelation of cinema which shook the world at the time and created such panic and fear that the effects of the film can still be felt today. Filmmaker Russ Gomm takes a look at the phenomena of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT through the eyes of a fan who was captivated by the unusual promotional strategy that led up to the release. This book takes a trip back in time to the 1990s to uncover the history of the production of the film including a unique making of and its path to success. Through conversations with fellow fans, filmmakers and other industry professionals, the book also examines the lasting effect that this seminal film had on not only the audiences, but the film industry itself and indeed the future of the horror genre.


All the Colours of Sergio Martino - By Kat Ellinger. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

Mondo, giallo, crime thriller, cannibal, comedy, western, sci-fi and action. Over the best part of 40 years Italian Maestro Sergio Martino has worked tirelessly in many genres of film and television. While his output is often diverse in tone and theme, one thing you can always guarantee is that his cinema is always entertaining. Author Kat Ellinger tracks the director's rise, from his humble beginnings as actor, production manager and second unit director, to his status as one of Italy's most celebrated cult filmmakers of the seventies and eighties. Chapters in the book include a run down of his earliest collaborations -- with the likes of Mario Bava and Umberto Lenzi -- and his first films, before turning to provide an in-depth examination of his giallo films. Later chapters focus on his crime thrillers, horror, sci-fi, action and adventure films; as well as delving into some of his most important partnerships; including those with his long-time producer, brother Luciano Martino, script-writer Ernesto Gastaldi and giallo and sexy comedy queen Edwige Fenech. In addition to this, the book takes a long look at some of the director's most overlooked films; including the massive contribution he made to the Italian sexy comedy and his major works for Italian television.


THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH: Novel to Film - By Samuel J. Umland. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020.Ships Worldwide. $25

Celebrated auteur Nicolas Roeg's THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH is a daring, artistically ambitious science fiction film that was made a full six years before ''BLADE RUNNER,'' widely considered a masterwork of British-American cinema. Starring rock icon David Bowie in the title role, the film showcases Roeg's dazzling, kaleidoscopic style and is at once a mythic parable, a provocative love story, a study of existential loneliness and a compelling portrait of exile and alienation, set in the vast, desolate spaces of the American Southwest.

The critical path into THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH begins with a detailed examination of Walter Tevis' neglected 1963 source novel, followed by a discussion of the film's long initial development and unusual production history, culminating in a close analysis of the film itself, exploring its elliptical editing style, its mixed critical reception and its curious legacy. This book is a welcome and much needed exploration of one of the most haunting and enigmatic science fiction movies ever made.


Philip K. Dick On Film - By Gregg Rickman. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

The now legendary writings of Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) have inspired 14 feature films and four television series, none of which he ever saw. Many of them have been widely seen and highly influential; they include BLADE RUNNER, TOTAL RECALL, MINORITY REPORT, THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE and most recently BLADE RUNNER 2049 and Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams. Borrowing his inspired ideas, few of them really utilize the author's unique imagination and the thought behind them. This book reviews all of the above films and television shows from, as much as possible, the perspective of Philip K. Dick himself. For most of his life a housebound scrivener of pulp science fiction, Dick nonetheless had distinct ideas about movies, and how his work should be filmed. This book incorporates his thought about visual media into a study of how a commercial system of film production grinds an insomniac's electric sheep into sausages for the masses--some of them, it must be granted, rather tasty.


Father, Son, Sword: THE LONE WOLF AND CUB Saga - By Tom Mes. Published by Arrow Books. Expected to Ship in February 2020. Ships Worldwide. $25

The gripping saga of former shogunate executioner Itto Ogami and his son Daigoro, better known as Lone Wolf and Cub. Betrayed and exiled by the treacherous Yagyu clan, they wander feudal Japan as assassins on the road to hell.

An epic, multi million-selling manga that spanned six years and nearly 9,000 pages. A long-running television series that is one of the staples of Japanese broadcasting. And six ferocious, inimitable films that are among the best that Japanese cinema has to offer. More than 40 years after they were made, these films continue to fascinate and enthral viewers the world over. THE LONE WOLF AND CUB and the BABY CART films are among the true classics of Japanese pop culture. Read and watched all across the globe, they inspired countless filmmakers, comic book artists, and writers, including Quentin Tarantino, Frank Miller, John Carpenter, John Woo, and Takashi Miike.
