The cover box for Titanic reveals two different meanings to the audience The first is an explicit meaning of which is clearly presented through the various images on the cover The second meaning the implicit meaning is subtlety suggested amongst the images and requires some thought to grasp Through the use of implicit and explicit meaning the movie box creates interest and intrigue The cover is composed of images that tell the audience right away what they can expect from the movie Initially catching the audiences eyes is Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet pictured at the top of the box DiCaprios arm is around Kate Winstlet suggesting that the movie is about these two being lovers The character of Kate Winslet is wearing diamond earrings which shows that character is from a rich or well off background The actors names appear above them in a small hard to read font probably because the actors are famous enough that they are recognizable to the public by just their faces Next the large image of the bow of a large ship tells the audience the setting of the movie is placed on a ship The ship is obviously the famous Titanic as suggested by the bold title across it The directors name James Cameron is above the title perhaps to draw interest from the directors fans Under the title states the film has won eleven academy awards including best picture The purpose of stating this fact is to inform the audience how critically acclaimed the movie is and perhaps creating more interest than compared to not having the claim on the box at all By studying the cover a little more closely several implicit meanings can be made out The first is how the actors are facing Kate Winslets back is towards DiCaprio This suggests that even though they are in love something might be holding her back from fully embracing him Their eyes are lowered
