We also see that one of the women is looking directly at the audience. This energy suggests a comedic genre , therefore a happy ending. The love is streong between the couple and the families are clearly very violently at war with one another. This will draw in a bigger audience as they will believe it is different to other horror films they have seen. This movie takes place in the 1960's.

Symbols Audience Movies For this movie poster analysis assignment I chose the movie posters for 'The Help' and 'Divergent'. The title 'The Help' suggests that the ending will be on a high note. The dark background adds mystery as it makes you think what could potentially be lurking in the darkness- the unknown adds tension.

Genre Conventions The colour scheme is the major element that suggests that this movie is a comedy. This gives the film poster a dark and eerie feeling. This actor has been lit up from the left of him. It is the main character walking with his fist up. Background: The background is a swirl of strange colours, fading into each other with families and the couple in front of it all.
Due to the page being mainly black, witch is associated with being alone, darkness and not being able to see, with a slight white mist and lit up floor of wood. Foreknowledge As the movie poster's goal is to attract even the most particular fans of the series, the poster includes many visual symbols from the book. Both have one arm outstretched behind them, they also have one leg bent up as well as their other arms are crossing each other. They have a clear commercial purpose - to promote an event or product - but they also have artistic value. The film is set in Italy and for me before I knew this I felt like the poster had a European romantic element to it, just from the colouring used.
One of them — a character called River — is in the foreground of the image. The contrast in clothing between the two groups show that the black women are from a lower, working class that work for the upper-class white women. There is pure emotion in the eyes and faces of both the characters and the list of the sins is crossed off one by one with a red dash. They both look powerful and strong as they look out at the world surrounding them. The yellow can also imply a setting that is dated.
There is a billing block at the bottom of the poster. And the orangey golds everywhere else make it seem like the heavens are opening for the young couple in the centre. It also has details of the film at the bottom. Nevertheless, there are widespread cultural connotations attached to signs. Her hair is tied back in a plated ponytail, it is not styled with her hair looking fancy and girly. First of all the title itself.
Colour: This is very much an autumn like palette of colours used in the posters. The clothing of the actor and actress also look like they are on a holiday, with the floral pattern on the clothing.

The messages in the poster are primarily visual. Those who have read the book are also apart of the intended audience. Above the search menu, there is a teenaged girl screaming with her face distorted on a screen with only darkness surrounding her. It makes it easy to read and makes it stand out, over the couple. This framing highlights it and promotes the fact that he is proud of the graffiti and his stand against society.
Background: In the background of the poster we can see a brightly lit city, which matches the title of the film, so it lets us know where the film is going to take place, it is dark and raining. She has a white complexion with brown hair, and is wearing a long formal white gown. This helps contribute to the mysterious and sinister atmosphere of the poster. For example, a movie poster for an action film might feature the main actor framed in such a way as to make him seem attractive, strong, and invincible. Horror of Dracula The Horror of Dracula is an old film which was made in 1958. This could suggest to the audience that something supernatural is wrong with the boy.
