Gr8at: Drew Struzan’s Film Posters

After seeing the documentary Drew: The Man Behind the Poster, I became aware of the incredible talent of the illustrator Drew Struzan. Seeing his portfolio, I realised just how highly regarded he is within the industry and how much of his work I was already familiar with. While I pay close attention to actors, directors, composers and scriptwriters, I’ve never really thought about film posters before, apart from when I highlighted the ones I have in my bedroom. Here are eight of Drew’s more famous works, with some bonus ones thrown in. Do you have a favourite? For more information n the man himself check out this Wired article.
