Drew Struzan illustrated movie poster

Here’s something you don’t see every day: A new Drew Struzan illustrated movie poster that isn’t for a George Lucas film. Struzan has created the poster for the new Spanish film comedy Torrente 3: El Protector. The film is the third in a series of comedies about a “horrendous Spanish detective”.

You might look at the Drew Struzan Torrent 3 movie poster illustration one of two ways: getting work doing traditional illustration for modern-day Hollywood one-sheets is extremely limited or illustrator Drew Struzan has a history of embracing varied film projects that you might not be aware of. (He is, after all, a true “work for hire” illustrator who has done more than illustrate Star Wars one-sheets.)

We’re not sure how well Struzan’s tradmark “kissed by the sun” warm color schemes or color penciled air-brush techniques work as an illustration for a Spanish comedy (a fan boy over at Ain’t It Cool News nicknamed the poster Jake and the Fatman: The Movie), but it certainly makes for an interesting illustration — right down to the hair on star Santiago Segura’s chest.

    The one-sheet does seem a bit much for a comedy, but the overwhelming tone of the advertising for Torrente 3 seems to take that tack. This makes sense, considering the level of grit, violence and sex in the Torrente films.

    Que no! Que no! Que dice Refo que es mentira… No es de Struzan..

    REFO SAYS THAT STRUZAN NO IS THE ARTIST… DO YOU UNDERSTANDING ME? THIS POSTER IS A LIE, A SANTIAGO SEGURA’S CONSPIRATION.

    A mi lo que mas me jode son los españoles que son como los maricones; que ven a Torrente y luego salen a lavarse las manos. Ser guarro está bien, y Torrente es lo mejor del humor negro español. En la vida hay algo más importante que criticar a Torrente, y eso es, ser español.

    Care to tell us what they’ve been saying? :)

    I got to see this poster in the local cinema on holidays last week and beside all the latest output from hollywood the poster looked very dated and drab. Probably due to the sepia tones but it didnt do a great job of selling the film to me…not that i would have understood it anyway.
