Analysing a film poster

  1. 1. Analysing a Film Poster
  2. 2. The background of the image is in the woods, establishing where the story is set. The fact that it is faded could suggest that it foggy but could also question that there is mystery and possibly something wrong about the woods. There is less focus on this part because the main focus is supposed to the main image in the centre. The background sets an eerie atmosphere.
  3. 3. This is the main image, this is a representation of the storyline. We se a wooden cabin, but it isn’t normal it is all mixed up like a rubix cube. This could suggest that the cabin in the woods is not a normal one and possible plays tricks on people. The fact that it is floating could suggest that it has paranormal influences or some sort of weird magic. The colours are dark and so suggest that the film hasn’t got a happy atmosphere.
  4. 4. This is the title of the film being advertised. The font is serif with the word “Cabin” and “Woods” in larger writing. These two words are there to highlight the storyline. The word “Cabin” is the biggest to relate the picture to the title. The word “woods” relates to the background picture. This is the strapline of the story. It adds curiosity for the reader. It is in small writing as if it is a secret adding suspicion to the storyline for the audience.
  5. 5. These are the credits, they highlight who is in the film and the directors. One of this films main selling points is that the famous actor Drew Goddard is in it, people who are fan of this celebrity will come and see this creating interest on the film. They are in small text because it is not what the audience will look for at first, they will look at this after been attracted to the poster by the images. The release date however is in a little larger font and it is bold. This is a key piece of information that the audience will want to know because hopefully by now from the rest of the poster they want to see it.
