A project in which students can design a merchandise line and create a movie trailer for a chosen movie to screen at Colossal Cinemas.

Let’s go to Colossal Cinemas, the best cinema around!

This teaching resource is a project for students to choose a movie they are enthusiastic about and create their own:

  • merchandise line, including combo and collectible items sold at Colossal Cinemas
  • promotional material, such as ‘Coming Soon’ posters
  • movie trailer to be used for advertising.

This project can be completed as an individual or collaborative group task. Students get to use their vocabulary, speaking and listening skills and knowledge to promote their movie of choice in the best light.
