WHY IS COLUMBIA AND METRO-
GOOD FOR OUR MEDIA PRODUCT?
I think Columbia is suitable for our media product as they produce
lots of thriller-based films. Paired with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer,
Columbia distributed the James Bond franchise, including it’s
latest hit Spectre.
Specifically, both film studio’s thrillers are more action-based,
such as Men in Black and Bad Boys. This is similar to our media
product which would be more action-based than horror-based
Our media product shares the same conventions of a espionage
Therefore Columbia and Metro would be quite suitable to
distribute our product.
Typically, the James Bond franchise is aimed for a target
audience between ages 25-70. This is due to the long lasting
fame and admiration for the films. It is particularly loved by the
females, who admire the figure that is James Bond and how he
acts around women.
However, more and more espionage thrillers are becoming
increasingly popular with the under 25’s. In particular, some spy
films have been released with the target audience of little children,
such as spy kids and stormbreaker.
The target audience is interested in dangerous and thrilling
situations along with technologies. As well as the key themes of
suspense and mystery.
