The header keeps with the same theme with the magazine. It familiarise the audience with what they are reading. Other film reviews which may interest the audience.

An interest graph is shown to ‘promote’ the film which shows the film highest moments and events. The issue date is shown and the website is included to inform the readers about other reviews online.
