Director John Carpenter and street artist Shepard Fairey have made some very special items for the Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo event for “They Live”.
Carpenter shot a video for the event. In the video, Carpenter explains a bit about “They Live” and its “prescience with regard to a media-saturated culture”. He also reveals the poster made by Fairey for the event.
The screening for “They Live” will be held at the Drafthouse on June 9. Fairey will be in attendance at the event. This is the first time the Drafthouse and Mondo have worked with Fairey, who became most associated with his Barack Obama “Hope”poster and “Obey” street art.
The poster will be available at the screening and a limited amount of posters will be available for sale on the following day, Friday June 10, at MondoTees.com. Follow @MondoNews for more details.

Below are the video about “They Live”, the trailer for “The Ward”, and the pictures of the process behind Fairey’s poster. What do you think about this news? Will you be in attendance at the Drafthouse?
