Romantic film posters

  1. 1. ROMANTIC FILM POSTERS Fallon Krampah
  2. 2. I wanted to examine the other romantic posters that were out there and their main features. Looking into other blockbuster movie posters, has allowed me to widen my understanding and creativity. By also looking into other movie posters, it has also allowed me to see what kind of images to capture of the actors, in the upcoming photo-shoot, to make sure that I have enough resources to produce what is most desirable. As I looked into the Romantic films and advertisement, I found that many of the posters included the main actors, which are the two lovers, embracing or standing in a position showing one of the two protagonists having clear dominance of the other. A hint of comedy is often shown in the posters, in the way the actors are smiling and laughing. Also another thing that I have noticed is that the movie posters throughout the years have changed from dramatic love and death to love, comedy and reality. I have selected a number of posters to analyse the different components of the posters, and see whether there are any of the features that I would like to use in my own poster.
  3. 3. THE BACK-UP PLAN This is a movie poster, that I personally really like. Due to the fact that it has a clean and clear finish. This is something that I most defiantly would like to recreate. The use of the two protagonists laughing indicates their joyful love/relationship towards each other. Showing that they are comfort towards each other. The colour pink that has been used to not just brighten the image up a little but to also imply a youthfulness that is taking part in the two protagonists relationships. The film title ‘The Back-up Plan’ has been made a reasonable font size underneath the films slogan “Fall in love. Get married. Have a baby. Not necessarily in that order.” This at first does suggest a traditional biblical way of living and building a family. Through the circles around the ‘Have a baby.’ point and arrow pointing upwards it strongly connotates that perhaps the two protagonists are not living the traditional biblical way of becoming one with each other and building a family but are rather conveying a more secular couple. This links in great with the film title, suggesting that the protagonists were having a baby assumingly unexpectedly they needed a ‘Back-up Plan’. The credits below the film title are vital in every film poster as it gives recognition to the different people that took part in the film. It also lets the audience know of any other actresses/actors that are part in the film that perhaps have not been mentioned before. It is also important to include any distributers at the bottom of the film posters, to give them recognition too. this is mainly done through the companies logo being places at near the bottom of the page. The website of the film has been included to make sure that the audience who want to find out more information about the film can go there and browse information on the film or even watch the trailer on there. Many film posters have a date of when the film will be released, however this film poster has a simple ‘Coming Soon’ keeping it simple and plain indicating that there will be more information released about this film in the later future.
  4. 4. Love Happens This poster as well has the two main actor and actresses names at the top of the poster just like the poster in the slide before. The central image of the protagonist shows them being intimate and in love. Even though this is a very plain and simple film poster is carries just enough depth for the film it is presenting. The slogan “sometimes when you least expect it…” fits perfectly with the title “Love Happens”. This can be read either way top to bottom or bottom to top, which makes it a great idea. The colour white again emphasises the simplicity of this poster. At the bottom of the film there are all the legal writings that have to be included in every movie poster. These texts are always in white and are hard ti read.
  5. 5. This film poster has a very modern feel and look to it. Already you can tell that it is a Rom- com through the nice bright colours and the gestures/poses of the two main protagonists, suggesting a youthfulness and contemporary side to them. Once again their names have been placed above their heads. This technique is often used to show the audience the famous main actors and actresses that are going to be involved in the film The line at the middle that has divided the two protagonists suggests that in this film we are going to see both sides of the story. Opening up to a wider and larger target audience. The images in general have a nice clean and professional finish to them, which is often found in studio photography. the release days has been placed right next to the film title to ensure that the audience sees this very easily without having to struggle finding it on the poster.

  6. 6. THE HOLIDAY In this movie poster we see all four main actors and actresses which is vital to every film poster. The white strip helps to distinguish between the two couples suggesting that in this film we are going to see two stories play at part. This time however, we do not see the actors/actresses names above their heads but in the white strip. The names however, were put in order of the actors/actresses appearing from left to right top to bottom on the poster. Making it easier for the audience to pin point who is who. Inside the white strip we also see “a film by Nancy Meyers” who we as the audience assume to be an important person who came up with the plot of the story. At the bottom of the film title we see the a statement that is not a slogan but rather film titles, that suggesting a link between the films and “the Holiday”. Showing that the same people who were involved in producing those well known films were also behind the production of “the Holiday”. This helps them gain more publicity and recognition. At the bottom of the film poster once again we see the legal writing in a faint white text, however the month ‘December’ has been placed there in a solid white colour and bold text to help It stand out and tell us that the film is going to be released in December.
  7. 7. Overall I have seen that many of the romantic movie posters out there have a lot in common. I have seen quite a few features of these movie posters that I personally very like and would like to exploit in my own production of my movie poster. The repeating conventions ( i.e. legal text at the bottom of the poster) on some of the posters have most definitely given me confirmation that I must include these in my own film poster to give it a realistic look to it.
