Tribbles are being transported back into the geek solar system. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas, revisits the classic Star Trek episode “The Trouble With Tribbles” in a pair of limited-edition screen prints that show Spock and Uhuru with the furry creatures.
Justin Ishmael, creative director of Mondo, the Alamo’s collectible art boutique, explained why he picked the popular 1967 Star Trek episode as a follow-up to the theater’s earlier Space Seed poster.
“Our first release featured Khan, arguably one of the most charismatic, sadistic and charming villains ever,” Ishmael told Wired.com for this exclusive first look at the Trouble With Tribbles posters. “We decided to lighten things up on our second release. Even though tribbles aren’t as sadistic as Khan, they certainly are trouble. ‘Space Seed‘ and ‘Tribbles‘ are polar opposites in terms of mood. We thought the first two releases should really play up how the original series could work on both fronts.”
The Alamo, a supercool theater that hosts the annual sci-fi, horror and action film festival known as Fantastic Fest, is known for its fan-friendly attitude and an increasing slate of special screenings with major Hollywood players. (The first wave of Fantastic Fest 2010 films was announced Tuesday, featuring South African zombie movie The Dead, Hong Kong kung-fu flick Ip Man 2 and other international picks.)
