Celebrated poster artist Drew Struzan is already a rock star among cinephiles. The creator of some of the most iconic film posters of the last four decades is now also the star of his own film. Drew: The Man Behind The Poster will debut July 19 at Comic-Con via Kino Lorber with a screening at San Diego’s Gaslamp 15 during the annual pop culture convention. It will then open in NYC on August 16 and additional markets, followed by VOD this fall. A prolific artist who got his start in commercial design and album covers, Struzan hit his stride in the 1970s and ’80s defining his dynamic style with instantly iconic designs for the Indiana Jones, Back To The Future, and Star Wars marketing campaigns. Other recognizable works include posters for Blade Runner, The Goonies, First Blood, The Thing, The Muppet Movie, the Police Academy series, Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone, and Hellboy. In 2008 Struzan announced his retirement. George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Michael J. Fox, Frank Darabont, and Guillermo del Toro appear in the docu feature to pay tribute to Struzan, who is also scheduled to appear on a Comic-Con panel for the film. Pic is directed by Erik P. Sharkey (Sexina: Popstar P.I.) and produced by Charles Ricciardi. Greg Boas and Erik Sharkey are co-producers. Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber and producer Charles Ricciardi negotiated the deal.
