Coming to America
Juli 1988

Not that this was unusual for Drew, but the two pieces of art for 'Coming to America' are truly inspired.  Both the Domestic and International posters are just perfect.  Funny story from the inside is:  The original idea for this one sheet was done for another project.  Drew designed it a month before for another film.  'Crocodile Dundee II' was the original application for the idea.  After Paul Hogan turned down the concept Paramount executives wouldn't let it die, it was just too good.  When this next project came up they wanted to revive the concept for Eddie Murphy.  Eddie was the fortunate one.  He got this wonderful portrait and perfect poster for his film.  Even more than that, he was given the original art from Paramount Pictures in appreciation for his good work.  So now which poster do you remember, 'Crocodile Dundee II' or 'Coming to America'?
