Remember that trailers come unbidden to audiences who may have elected to see a very different kind of film. Analyse the trailer, thinking particularly about how child audiences might respond to it. Can you tell what is happening? Are there any jump-moments, or action sequences? Is there a child character younger audiences might identify with? Is there any sense of threat or danger? Does the trailer have a reassuring ending?

Analyse and rate the trailer, highlighting the issues you spot, then compare your notes and recommendation with notes from a BBFC Compliance Officer.
