Movie Poster Analysis

Colours
The colours are dull shades of yellow and brown. I believe that these colours have as they are the sort of colour that you expect to see for an infection as they look dirty and possibly mouldy. Also they are very natural colours and a lot of the time they are in a desert

Text
There is some writing in the background of the image that looks like it has been scratched into the wall and it is a warning to anyone who sees it to be careful when they encounter people they do not know. If you were to see this from far away you would naturally be curios to read it and find out what it says. Then when you have read it you might want to see the film as anyone who sees that can tell that the film is about an infection as it hints it is on the poster. The writing dose look rushed and unclear like someone has gone into a room and scratched it with something then left. The title is white so that it stands out against all the other colours and it looks a little faded and there is little bits of brown on the text making it seem dirty.

Positioning
They use a very simple poster as they have a woman who looks ill and in pain covering at least half of the poster and just above her is the warning message. It is very simple and from far away you can still see the woman and the colours make it obvious that it is the thriller genre. For anyone passing it they might stop to look at it as it dose stand out.





Colours
Trpical colors blacks and greys. They have Liam Neeson behind the text and you can see a small amount of detail on him. They have The title in orange so that it stand out against the other colours in the poster.

Text
They have a lot of text on the screen. The main characters name, the title and one of the lines from the film. I think that the quote is made a little duller in colour so that you see the title first then you would look at what the quote says. The title is bold so that it is eye catching and it is just plain orange. Im not sure why the colour is orange as red would be a little more fitting for the film as the man is out for revenge.

Positioning
Im not sure is this poster works as well as the other as there is to much going on in it. I like that you can see the gun over the tittle, but not to much so you cant read it. I also think that there is to much text on the poster and someone that passes it might not want to look at it because of that.


Colour
There are very dull and cold colours on this poster giving you a slight idea that this is a thriller. It also makes you think about what it is about as the poster dosnt tell you a lot.

Text
The text looks a little fancy witch works as in the film this man is very rich. Also were it positioned works well as it stands out against the black of the clothes. Just below the tittle you see the date when the film is out in cinimas and you might be curiouse to see what the film is.

Positioning
I think that the possitioning of everything in this poster works reall well. It stands out and i do belive that this poster works to get people to look at is as befor i saw the film i saw the poster and it made me want to see the film. You also see that half of his face is like an old painting and if you have seen the film then you would understand what it is all about.
