Here in the third row, we have a lot of fans of sexy posters – and fans of sexy posters always love the man who has created the sexiest posters: Drew Struzan. If you don’t know the name, you know his work. If you’ve been a movie buff your whole life, there’s a great chance you had one of his posters hanging up in your high school bedroom. Drew is, simply put, a god. Most importantly, he is a part of a dying breed of film poster artists in our ever Photoshop dependent world – even if, technically, he hasn’t been doing film posters since his retirement a few years ago.
Now, we will get a deeper look at the man with the documentary Drew: The Man Behind The Poster. While the production value doesn’t look the highest (even the trailer has some awful audio moments), there are plenty of big names here talking about their admiration for Drew and his process: Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Michael J. Fox, Frank Darabont, and Guillermo Del Toro among them.
