Check Out This Trailer For DREW: THE MAN BEHIND THE POSTER!! Lucas, Spielberg, Guttenberg!! And More!!

Merrick here...
Back in June, we previewed Titan's new ART OF DREW STRUZAN book (available for pre-order HERE). In the coming weeks we hope to bring you further glimpses into that title, as well as host a giveaway of this extremely Geek friendly publication - so stay tuned. There's also a documentary in the wind about Mr. Struzan - not directly related to the book mentioned above, but clearly touching on the very same subjects and material. A trailer for the film has now gone on line, via STARWARS.COM. The preview alone features comments from Del Toro, Greg Hildebrandt, producer Michael E. Uslan, Leonard Maltin, Thomas "Vegan Cop" Jane, Spielberg, Darabont, Harrison Ford, Lucas, and even Steve Guttenberg - I can't wait to see how the whole project unfolds.
Even if you don't know Struzan by name, if you've any love of films at all you'll almost certainly recognize his work. And, to folks like me, his contribution to the filmgoing/"Geek" experience is invaluable and unforgettable - I'm delighted to see his impact and legacy receiving so much appreciation. Apparently DREW: THE MAN BEHIND THE POSTER is still seeking distribution and I deeply hope that it finds its way instead of turning into THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING, an evidently fascinating documentary about the making of JAWS that isn't in wide distribution at the moment (come one, someone...make that happen for these guys!). It recently screened twice in Austin and I was unable to attend either screening - much to my very deep dismay. Really wanted to see that. More on the Struzan projects soon.

    Just picked up a Back to the Future poster

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    framed from the markets for 16 aussie bucks. Drew created many of my favorite images... Too many to name.

    OK, what is going on with Lucas' neck?

    Why interview Thomas Jane?

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    He's the poor man's Aaron Eckhart who had a lot of geeks jizzing for a while, but he blew it after The Mist (which I hated) by making KillShot and other unnotable films. The dude needs to fire his agent...but that still won't help him.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 11:55 a.m. CST

    Lucas' Neck Answered

    by Dick Bahls

    Unfortunately, its true. Every good idea Lucas has had since 1981 gas gotten stuck in his neck, and never made it out. An evil toy company executive by the name of Sidious has been speaking for him ever since.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 12:05 p.m. CST

    It's like a bullfrog's neck

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 12:07 p.m. CST

    What's the point?

    by JohnnyLaBamba

    Is this just going to be famous people saying over and over what a great artist this guy is, intercut with the posters? That's pretty dull.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 12:14 p.m. CST

    Struzan, Jane, Mist, etc...

    by StatelyWayneManor

    Thomas Jane played an artist in the Mist and the art was painted by Drew Struzan. Drew is also featured on on the 2-disc Mist dvd.

    His posters were magnificent, but ...

    by Henry Jones Sr

    ... then he fell into the strange trap of repeating the same design. I'm talking about the black background with the characters arranged around a central panel. It started with The Phantom Menace and it's sequels, continued with the first Harry Potter, and then Hellboy and Indiana Jones IV after them. It got boring!

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 12:27 p.m. CST

    by Lao_Che_Air_Freight

    The Star Wars "circus" poster, Temple of Doom, and Crystal Skull. I saw the Goonies one in a store over the weekend, I may pick that one up.<p> Peak, Amsel, and Struzan, god love 'em

    Jane's character in The MIST

    by twogunjames

    was based on Drew Struzan, was it not? And if I;m not mistaken, aren't they good friends? This looks excellent on par with the best artist documentaries I've seen. I can't wait to see it. DREW!

    Jane's character in The Punisher

    by CHRISTIAN_BALE_TRASHED_MY_LIGHTS

    was based on Drew Struzan, was it not? They cut out all of the boring artist stuff in his life and just focused on the GUNISHMENT he dolled out when he was younger.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 1:03 p.m. CST

    Guttenberg's appearance

    by Bouncy X

    probably cuz of the Police Academy movies. all their posters were all painted too so if he's in there i guess Drew did them.

    MY FAVE DREW POSTER IS BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II

    by Meadowe

    I love marty's jacket, and I can't remember if he was on a hoverboard, but I liked seeing Christopher lloyd in it, and I always liked the wheels at an angle to show that it was in hover mode.

  • Frazetta was a Legend and a wild character {Pauli Walnuts' actor from the Sopranos should play him in a docudrama}Drew is a great talent , but comes across like a hairdresser and his art borders on Photo montage.And as for the Mist , the lead character was the hardest fuckin graphic designer I've ever seen .He came across like he was an ex special ops.Drew {and most artists/designers including myself} looks like he'd scream like a little girl if giant spiders came after him.

    but this isn't a trailer for a book, Roy. At any rate, I always said that if I could have any living artist as a mentor, it would be Drew. I'm ready to see this now.

    Just kidding, of course. Other artists do some tracing but Struzan brings much more to his work than they do.

    yeah the vader scene

    Goyder on the Neck

    by Dick Bahls

    A Goyder on the neck can be drained from time to time. That's why it seems to shrink and grow. If it ever pops, it floods the bloodstream with a very toxic fluid. It's hasta la vista, baby, see you on the other side.

    His designs for Darth Vader ,Stormtroopers and Boba Fett.. as well as visualizing Joe Johnstones Falcon and Tie/X wing designs ,are some of the greatest pre production work in cinema history.Without him the prequels suffered badly.That asian guy , who designed the prequels, failed to come up with one decent iconic image!.

    by gerrit4

    This looks like a puff piece describing how great he is, not a movie. I'd rather know about the dark side of his life, the real story not just a description of why he's so good...

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 4 p.m. CST

    Eh, not too exciting.

    by catlettuce4

    I am not saying Drew does bad art, but it is just the painting version of a Photoshop Heads type poster. I miss the days when movie poster art was really special, like Richard Amsel did.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 4:02 p.m. CST

    Rameses

    by catlettuce4

    To be fair to Doug Chiang, if you see his earliest prequel work, his art style looked very much like McQuarrie's, but he was told by Lucas they didn't want that look anymore since this was a different era and should have different looking things in it. He did try... obviously Doug thought that was the proper look for Star Wars, too.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 4:06 p.m. CST

    Great, for doc - trailer,though...

    by jorson28

    I think it's GREAT that Struzan is getting this kind of recognition. I've felt very privileged to have actually had the small chance to communicate with Mr. Struzan by E-mail (twice, years ago, so I seriously doubt he'd remember), asking about the new Star Wars poster and dumb questions about illustration board before I really knew what it was. The trailer here, though... if they want distribution, they're going to need to change the tone. Here we've got all these celebrities singing Struzan's praises, but the music suggests, of all things, a SOMBER TONE... Why? I guess they might think it's appropriately reverent and respectful, but I don't think it's going to win fans. Of course, if you're gerritt44, then you change everything in the trailer BUT the music. Frankly, though, I think the only reason to focus on the dark side of the life you're celebrating is if there's some lesson there, but even though everyone has their problems, most people (i.e., general audiences) barely know who Struzan is, and from what I've heard, Struzan is a happily-married Christian. Some of you guys might call that "dark" - suggesting an artist brainwashed by religion and imprisoned in an outdated institution not worth fighting for unless you're gay - I don't know, but I doubt it would come across that way, or be something people would WANT to see about an otherwise popular person they never or have barely heard of.

    by Rameses

    I accept what you say about Doug Chang , (though I assumed for some reason he worked on all three prequels...because they all have a much of the same look} But the idea that *everything* in the prequels ,needed to have a different look just seems odd.I thought the whole point of the technology in New Hope , was that it was old and outdated .The m Falcon is meant to be very old , yet nothing in the prequels had that gritty textured look and theyre not set that far in the past.

    ...but using that logic you should be seeing either clean looking X-wings /Y-fighters in phantom Menace , or Rusted down and dirty looking , Naboo Queen style ships in New Hope.The whole look of the craft changed even though the Falcon / X wings etc was meant to be very old in New Hope

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    I totally agree about the Blade Runner poster....it looked like Kabuki Harrison Ford. I'm not sure if Struzan was trying to hint that Ford was a replicant with that poster, but it never really looked right. He has another less popular Blade Runner poster which is much better, though.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 6:23 p.m. CST

    Hopefully they get more into the art

    Are you trying to tell me that you're actually being SERIOUS when you post? Because I don't believe that for a second. No one could be as willfully, aggressively ignorant as you appear to be. <P> Ok, I'm done with you for today. See you tomorrow, pally.

    His poster for The Thing is a cool story

    by BadMrWonka

    From his site:<p> "The ultimate in artistic terror! Universal calls one day and asks: 'Are you willing to do a poster for 'The Thing' to be delivered first thing in the morning?' They said they had no reference material, no concept, no idea. Same basic story as the original '51 film, we trust you, we'll have it picked up first thing in the morning if you can do it. One day and night to conceive from out of the blue and to paint it as well. He did it and it was done so quickly and picked up so early that as it went straight to the seperators for printing, the acrylic paint was still wet and stuck to the glass at the seperator's. Don't ask what is the standard way of doing business in the industry, there is no standard way."<p> the poster: http://tinyurl.com/2ask5st

    Ok, then, RPL

    by TedKordLives

    That's all I've been trying to get you to admit all this time. I still don't see how you get any entertainment out of posing as an idiot. <P> Unless, I guess, you are an idiot posing as an even bigger idiot. Either way, have fun being mocked and ridiculed by virtually everybody else on this site, loser.

    by TedKordLives

    Get ready for some more swirlies, moron. By the way, that statement makes absolutely no sense, but I'm sure you are quite aware of that, you fucking monkey.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 8:37 p.m. CST

    Oh, I get it now:

    by TedKordLives

    Every asshole in school belittled you for being a complete and utter idiot and being unrepentantly ignorant. The 'assholes' were everybody smarter than you. That makes complete sense now, sorry.

  • Aug. 16, 2010, 8:40 p.m. CST

    I can use smaller words if you need me to, RPL.

    Just let me know.

    Photos of Drew in his studio

    by mondomark

    If anyone's interested in finding out what Drew's studio looks like, I photographed him a few months ago for Tripwire Magazine. Drew is an absolute gentleman, not to mention an amazing artist. Here's a link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hotcherry/sets/72157624428313619/

    Looks great, but what about '77?

    Drew took inspiration from this man:

    by Bot-Bot

    Richard Amsel. Here is a small sampling of his work, and by small I mean this guy did hundreds of posters: <p> http://adammcdaniel.com/RichardAmsel2b.htm <p> Check out the other categories too. This guy was the master that Drew tried to live up to.

    re: the Thing poster

    by Monolith_Jones

    Acrylic paint should have been dry by the time it got to where it's going. Cool story but probably "enhanced"

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 1:33 p.m. CST

    Amazing artwork...

    by FloristGump

    although I sadly have it on good authority that the man himself is a complete tool. But the work's what matters, and that's what will endure, and for that alone he'll genuinely leave his mark as a late 20th/early 21st century great.

    re:re: the Thing poster

    by Rameses

    I thought that ,acrylics dry in minutes {unless a retarding gel agent is added}Plus does Drew even use acrylics , he tends to do a lot of detailing with colouring pencils , they don't take well on an acrylic base coat.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 6 p.m. CST

    Yep Ramses

    by Monolith_Jones

    Acrylics make sense for an illustrator because of the fast drying time. Even with a retarder it shouldn't take that long. And if you were to use a lot of retarder, then the point of using acrylics in the first place is defeated.

    These posters are so iconic. What I love about...

    by moonlightdrive

    most of those films is that somehow they just managed to nail everything. The film, story, actors but then the music, these posters. You just rarely see that these days. I love how they added on bits to the Back to the Future posters with each film. Sublime work.

    Drew did the best Indiana Jones poster

    by Jem

    By Far the best was Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom. Bruce Wolfe did a lousy Harrison ford likeness.
