While many people tend to look to teasers and trailers to judge a movie’s marketing campaign, the truth is that there is so much more to marketing a feature film. For instance, there are posters — and on those posters are taglines, a slogan or catchphrase a movie studio will use to associate with the production.
To properly advertise a film, as well as judge whether or not you want to see it in theaters, oftentimes, it all comes down to marketing. When it comes to taglines, they certainly help audiences remember the film both before and after it releases. Take for example the Die Hard franchise. Bruce Willis’ John McClane is known for saying, “Yippie-ki-yay, motherf*****!” Then there’s Star Wars, with its famous quote, “May the Force be with you.” These taglines have become synonymous with their movies, and that helps us remember them.
