The weeks leading up to the release of the movie lots of campaigns and advertisements were posted on popular social networking sited like twitter and facebook. Popular cinemas like Vue Entertainment and Cineworld set up ‘Infection Zones’ which people could see exclusive contence and have the chance to win on-the-spot prizes.  ’Magnet Releasing’ was  in-charge of distributing the film in the US and ‘Vertigo Films’ was in-charge of it in the UK.

We were giving a brief to deign and make a magazine for heworth grange school. We had to make a front cover and a contents page. To make these parts of my magazine, firstly, i had to go around the school and take pictures, the more pictures the better as i had a wider range to choose from. Once i had all my pictures it was now just choosing the ones that worked the best. i started off with the background first using yellow, yellow is one of the heworth colours so i thought it worked really well. I then added the magazine title and a bit of information on what issue and date he magazine was.also a few pictures and a little bit of writing which gives you information on what the main story's are. On the contents page is a few pictures and more information on what is in the magazine. all the pictures have got a Shadow in the background, i think it makes it stand out that little bit more
