THE POSTER ANALYSIS - The COMPSOTION of the poster is very simple but distinctive at the same time and the font stands out in a very subtle way. The word Spectre is another word for ghost. This suggests a threatening aspect and the fact that the back-round is blue suggests a cold forward-thinking, unemotional head space, possibly of the main character, James Bond. The main character, who is played by Daniel Craig, has a very strong posture. From this we can connote that he is quite brave and strong whilst being intimidating from the gaze from his blue eyes looking straight at you. He wears a suit of black and white which is different to his traditional black tuxedo and this could suggest has turned a new page and is more seen as a hero and represents good instead of bad. The skeleton in the background could suggest the enemy and shows a very evil and sinister feel. The fact that the gun is place in front of the skeleton suggests the elements of hero and villain. - The GENERIC ELEMENTS are the features such as the gun and the skeleton. The gun helps the viewer know that the film is an action and the fact that the gun has the silencer on shows that he is a spy and that he is silent but deadly. - The TEASER ELEMENTS, are the villainous character in the background which makes the viewer want to know who it is and this demonstrates the idea of pulling us into watching it. -The STARS AND DIRECTORS include Daniel Craig, Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux and Ralph Fiennes.The UNIQUE SELLING POINT is the fact that it is another film that is adding to the legacy of bond films and because Daniel Craig is a well established actor. The TARGET AUDIENCE is mainly male dominated but does also have a female fan-base.
