Magazine Content<br />Title has changed so it looks gritty to form this rugged impression of the audience. Also the earlier issue seems more chatty and more like a gossip magazine. The newer version of Total Film uses pictures to tell the audience of the features in the magazine whereas they used in the earlier issues they uses kickers and cover lines. In the earlier issues the dominating image would usually be of the actor or actress and not the character that they are portraying which is almost an inevitability in the new issues. Also Total Film claims to be ‘the modern guide to movies’ suggesting that it has surpassed rival magazines like Empire.<br />

Web 2.0 and NMT<br />Total Film’s website is quite modern and informs readers of all the recent film gossip. Film trailers are displayed as well as online reviews with user feedback.<br />In what ways has the magazine become more than just a magazine?With the growing age of technology and the current youth generation of ‘generation z’ as well as the massive following from ‘generation x’, the magazine has become more intertextual so that it can appeal to people on different levels. ‘Generation z’ are described as the internet generation or the technology generation as they were born during the development and have always had access to technology. Having a website for the magazine makes the news and gossip more accessible and could therefore increase popularity. Also people don’t have to buy the latest issue to find out the news, just go on their corresponding site. People can sign up to the website and receive emails about promotions and offers, as well as being informed of the news and gossip.<br />
