Watch: Great Trailer for 'Drew: The Man Behind the Poster' Doc
Okay, this is awesome. I feel like I've been saying that a lot recently, but this time I really mean it. SlashFilm found an official trailer on StarWars.com for a documentary called Drew: The Man Behind the Poster about, as you've guessed, the legendary Drew Struzan, the iconic poster artist we all know and love. I'll be honest - I didn't even know this was being made. A documentary about Struzan? Awesome. I knew there was a book coming soon, but that is all I'd heard about. This looks great and features interviews with Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, and so many more great movie people. Watch the trailer below!
Watch the official trailer for Erik Sharkey's Drew: The Man Behind the Poster:
Drew: The Man Behind the Poster is directed by up-and-coming American filmmaker Erik Sharkey, of a few shorts previously. Sharkey along with Greg Boas and Charles Ricciardi are the filmmaking team behind this doc. "Telling the tale through exclusive interviews, the journey spans Drew's early career in commercial and album cover art through his recent retirement as one of the most recognizable and influential movie poster artists of all time." These three filmmakers have crafted a comprehensive presentation about the artist, the art, and the stories behind Drew's most recognizable creations. This was unveiled at Comic-Con and doesn't have a distributor or release date yet, as far as we know, but I can't wait to see it! We'll keep you updated.
