Movie poster trends come and go, but there is no doubt that the hottest new kid on the block is Mondo, the mates behind the Alamo Drafthouse, who have rejuvenated the morbid market with their revamped one-sheets designs for The Rolling Roadshow Tour from such graphic design prodigys as Olly Moss and Jason Munn.

The Rolling Roadshow Tour — brought to you by the movie-loving mavens at Alamo Drafthouse — starts tonight, and the schedule features a big platter of Texas-themed classics. And the posters by indie rock fave, Jason Munn, look pretty sweet, too. (If you recall, British artist, Olly Moss, did the sheets for last year’s show).

Elizabeth Taylor, one of Hollywood’s great golden beauties, has died at the age of 79. Known for her sexy screen presence and a tumultuous romantic life, most notably a torrid on-and-off affair with fellow actor, Richard Burton, Ms. Taylor spent the latter chapter of her life dedicated to many charity causes, including fighting AIDS. Long live the queen!
