Film magazines look to be a dying breed as they can be accessed easier online and through lots of other medias for cheaper such as videos.

Most film magazines cover the big blockbuster films as this is what most people want to read about, a select few magazines do cover smaller more specific films which a small proportion of the population will want to know about.

The colour schemes on the magazines usually change to the colour scheme of the film they are covering.
