Remember back in the day when movie posters used to be a work of art, something you'd want to pinup in your dorm room? Today's movie posters rely too heavily on Photoshop, and are often generic, fitting into a cookie-cutter template based on its genre. One artist that is the cream of the crop is Drew Sturzan. He is the man behind the iconic posters for every film in the Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Rambo and Star Wars franchises. He's also responsible for the sublime Blade Runner, Jurassic Park and E.T: The Extraterrestrial movie posters. Now it sounds as though J.J. Abrams has brought Drew back for Star Wars VII.
So let’s just get to the amazingness, shall we? We here at Schmoes Know have learned from a close source to Drew himself that none other than JJ Abrams has contacted him to come OUT OF RETIREMENT to do the poster art for Star Wars Episode VII. Not only will this tie in the fan base and magic of the original trilogy, but it will connect the new saga to the original feelings we all have based in part from the wonderful posters we all know and love.


Star Wars: Episode VII - Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film. It's being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.

Could you imagine a non Sturzan poster for a Star Wars film?

I hope so. He brought a sense of wonder to Star Wars posters.

You get the whole movie looking at that one image.

I couldn't agree more, I hope this news is true.

Yes, yes I do. I really wish movie posters would be good again instead of the bad photoshop jobs they are today.

I actually don't think it would ruin the movies or anything, but to me personally...having a Struzan poster is more important than the 20th Century Fox fanfare at the start of the movie.
