As stated in the article “’In Your Face…All Over the Place’: Advertising Is Our Environment”, Kilbourne states “advertising often sells a great deal more than products.

Movie posters are important marketing tools used to persuade potential viewers to visit the theater and purchase a ticket to see the film. Posters create a specific feeling about the upcoming film, establish a setting, introduce characters, highlight star talent, and create a perception about the genre. Successful posters inspire me to learn more about the film’s subject matter and potentially visit the box office to buy a ticket. Poor attempts at a poster will leave me confused and disoriented with the intended subject. After seeing a successful poster, viewers can use rhetorical devices to discuss how the poster is attempting to market the upcoming film. The film’s ethos, pathos, and logos all contribute to persuasion, as the poster forces a determination regarding interest in the upcoming film. I will discuss the poster for The Wolf of Wall Street and how it uses each rhetorical device as a means to establish the tone and setting for the film.
The author of this advertisement uses different text sizes and effects to highlight what is important in the advertisement. For example the words, “More”, “Doctors”, and “Camels” are not only in a large font size and all caps, but the first letter of each word is in red.

Advertisements can get old very quickly; they are usually repetitive, boring, and a waste of everyone’s time. People are getting better at ignoring advertisement, but occasionally, some brilliant advisement can be stuck in one’s head. One advertisement for Orion Telescopes was particularly interesting. With just three images, the moon, the American flag, and the Made in China on the flag, it captured the capability of their product and added an ironic twist at the end.
