Ill Manors Trailer

What are the typical codes and conventions of film trailers - what information is usually provided?
 Conventions of film trailers normally include establishing the plot of the movie, introducing the characters, providing an overall setting and adding more interesting footage which will draw the viewers to a well-designed trailer that packages the movie in a summary.

How are trailers distributed?
Trailers are distributed in many ways, some common ways include; 
The cinema - before the movie starts, there is atleast 15 minutes of trailers from new movies or such.
Online (YouTube, Official Movie Websites, Social Networking sites)
This is as many people in society use the internet to find out new information and are constantly on it. By sharing the trailer on these websites the production companies know that the trailer will be shared very quickly and will gain many hits in short periods of time.

How does Ill Manors use trailer conventions?

Trailers begin in almost every single instance with the production information and age restrictions, the company logos can instantly make a viewer decide if they want to view the film or not. This can even mean a decision on whether they will enjoy the trailer/film before even watching it, this is because big companies often have higher budgets and usually higher quality productions so audiences once they see who made it will make up their mind whether it will be good or not.

Who is the target audience? Does it have a unique selling point or use particular techniques to appeal to the audience? Consider the way the scenes are edited together – does the trailer give away any clues about the narrative? Are the main stars visible in the trailer? Is there information about the director of the film? Is there information about the release date? Is a narrator’s voice-over used? 
How has the genre of the film been represented through characters, settings, lighting, colour, music/dialogue, camera shots/movements/angles and editing?
