given so the trailer doesn’t provide the viewers with the story line however, lighting, titles and music provide the genre.

• Nothing dramatic, very basic editing, long clips providing the audience with the principle character.

• Awards, encouragement shown give a good reputation of the view and the audience then expect a good movie.

• Music is built up until the end, very dramatic and the ‘theme tune’ is classic to all of the films giving audience recognition.

• No narrative as it is clear that we know this film and it is part of an important series of films and not only that but the titles tell us it is one of two parts.
