Die hard Poster Analysis

The orginial poster, for the legendary Die hard starring well known actor Bruce Willis as with the first film, the action also takes place on Christimas Eve. The main character McClane is waiting for his wife to land at washington dulles international airport  when terrorists take over the air traffic control system. He must stop the terrorists before his wife's plane and several other incoming flights that are circling the airport run out of fuel and crashes. The poster is eye catching and appealing: just the main protagnist, John McClane looking towards the title heading in the poster. The taglines at the top of the poster connotates with blood and gory violence, also the release date is shown below the picture of willlis. The explosion behind Bruce Willis also connotes with neverending action or an introduction of another main villian and the tag line also creates an enigma which will draw people into watching the film.

running man

The composition of Stephen King's novel combined science fiction and action film"The Running Man" which is portraying the urge of the main protagnist Ben Richards. It is quite clear he is searching for answers but, seems lost due to the composition of the poster which is being portrayed in the progtanist or it could also indicate running away from something or from himself for example the bigger frame of himself covering the new york buildings. Other things i have pointed in this poster is the Red bold italics which connote with danger or conflict and this justaxfies with the poster because they is alot of violence and full of menance expected in the timeframe of the main protagnist.

The composition of the bigger frame of the main protagnist looking down at the city reinforces the structure of the city which seems to be normal and civilised set in a futuristic timeline. It also gives an impression like in modern day america a global collapsing economy and america being a totalitarian policing state, but however the smaller frame of the protagnist shown below the poster shows a sense of freedom or he could be running out of time. It also portrays the convention of the thriller due to the smaller frame of the protagnist as opposed to the bigger frame showing his quick dominance only to come crashing down shown in the lower frame of the poster, and the combined circuit of the sci-fi action genre convention contains a protagnist, possibly a damsell in distress, and as always an antagonist. The shades of the colour black and white connotes with misery and despair as dark could be lifeless to the white shade underneath the smaller frame in the poster which signifies lovely connotations like love,hope or turning a new leaf.

The composition of the blood red film title. "The Running man", which is trying to emphaise the action part of the film. The colour red can also be associated with excitement,danger and gory violences, also possibly death. The bold italics combining with the blood font which is composed at a silently different angles, which could imply a series of violent battles that the protagnist will take on, which reinforces the convention of the futuristic sci-fi/action genre: alot of puzzles and unaswered mysteries. The bigger frame of the protagnist could  be shown as strong and mighty, while in the smaller frame looks weak and hopeless. This is done by composing Schwarzenegger and his smaller shadow together, making them seem in their own mindframe due to the distance of looking over the city to being a smaller frame .

Survey results

So far i've had two responses but looking at the future i think more people will come and help us. But in the long run i think that we will get the results needed from our group's survey so we can able to move foward on things alot quicker. The experience so far from our surveys has allowed us to meet people with different tastes and likes to what they would expect in a film or a teaser trailer.

While we working on our surveys we have found out ways we can communicate not only by paper but in person aswell. It has allowed us to become more up close and personal with the audience
