Cape Town - Before the film is released, before the teaser trailer and the actual trailer to the film, studios have another thing that they use to grab your attention and leave you anticipating their latest offering.

Posters are a great way to grab the audiences attention and let them know that something is cooking, who will star in it and sometimes with a little taste of what might be featured in the film. Posters whet your appetite, get your imagination going and of course get you excited!
