It’s getting snuggly here at Thn Towers as we approach the big day. Chestnuts are roasting on an open fire, we’re tucking into the mistletoe and wine, and Die Hard is on the telly at 9 O’clock. It must be Christmas.
Speaking of Die Hard, we posted an excellent little Mondo poster for the film a couple of days back, and today we can share with you one for another Christmas movie classic, Home Alone. This one comes courtesy of Adam Simpson and originally debuted earlier today at SlashFilm. The one-sheet features all of Kevin McCallister’s cheeky little traps, including the swinging paint cans and the Micro Machines that get trampled on by the two bungling burglers Harry and Marv. Apparently the posters is currently selling on eBay for a whopping $75.

After debuting an awesome poster for Die Hard as part of the Mondo Mystery Movie program, another modern holiday classic is getting the same treatment from the collectible arthouse. Adam Simpson has delivered an awesome poster for Home Alone, the Chris Columbus directed holiday comedy that made a star out of Macaulay Culkin, and turned Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci into some of the worst thieves of all-time. The poster went on sale yesterday, so you'll have to hit eBay if you're desperate, but it's so damn cool that we wanted to highlight it. It captures the spirit of the movie, and lays out all the cool traps. Look! I love the surreal Mc Escher-esque layout of the McCallister house with Harry and Marv getting caught up in all of Kevin's traps. From the paint cans to the Micro Machines and the other various things the Wet Bandits step on, »
