Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Blade Runner, The Thing... the list goes on and on. Drew Struzan is one of the few "names" in movie posters. He is responsible for illustrating some of the most famous posters in cinema history and his work accomplishes what so many other movie posters fail to do, creating images so memorable that they become the key iconography of the films they represent. Frank Darabont, who hired Drew Struzan to create the posters for The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, later based the main character in The Mist on Struzan himself. In fact, The Mist Collector's Edition DVD includes an interesting 7 minute featurette called Drew Struzan: An Appreciation of An Artist. Now, the first trailer for a new feature-length Drew Struzan documentary, entitled Drew: The Man Behind the Poster, has been released. Watch the trailer after the jump: As much as I love his work, »
