The most important thing about a movie is not the cast, director or the company who financed it, but the general audience who will see it in the theaters and cinemas. Those people will decide whether it’s a good movie or there is nothing special about it. This is the reason that when a movie is completed, the producers take keen interest in the advertisement and the publicity of the movie. This is an interesting stunt by which they create a suspicious atmosphere so that when the movie is released, people will run to the cinemas and theaters. Just like any other product in the market, a movie also need some recognition in the market to attract general audience who will later, rate the movie as a good one or bad one. A research shows that most of the people go watch a movie not because they like the cast or direction but the way the marketers advertised it and the trailers they saw before, had forced them to go the cinema and watch the film.

There are many ways to advertise a movie like television advertisements, radio announcements but the most important is; distributing movie posters. A movie poster is just like a flyer which includes an image from the movie, the name of the cast, director and the company who financed it. At the end there is a release date and the cinemas that are authorized to show the movie. Unlike any other method, it’s very easy to create a movie poster and there are many websites that offer to create it for free.
