Media: Magazine Cover Research The masthead of the magazine cover is red in order to make it stand out, although the full spelling of the magazine cover isn’t clear but the audience already know what it’s called as it’s a very popular magazine. The splash, ‘Meet the Joker, attracts the audience as they make it seem like as if the audience will get an insight on the characters personality and to familiarise themselves with him. Publicity shots help not only to promote the film but also make the audeince familiarise themselves with the character instead of the actor The strapline attracts the audience who may be intrested on the film, they also confirm it’s part of the Batman series by using the icon The colour code coordinates with the colour of ‘The Jokers ’ The tagline gives the audience a slight insight of what the character is like by using a catchy phrase or a quote from the film
Media: Magazine Cover Research The publicity shot looks like a screenshot from the film which has been made into a cartoon version, by the look of the character we assume he’s an isolated dull person because of his facial expression as well as the use of colours as black, grey and white or used for the background The strapline shows not only what the magazine edition is based on but also what film the character below is from The title of the film is very basic but the white circle makes it stand out and slightly eye catching. The colour code is very bland and boring and portrays that this magazine company is made on a low budget compared to the Empire magazine as well as setting a tone for the film which may possibly cause some suspense.
