4. Satire is when witty language is used to convey insults or scorn. I feel that a use of satire in The Player is the fact that he murders somebody who he beieves mistakenly is trying to kill him. The fact that post murder he finds out that the person he murdered actually isn't the one who is trying to kill him. Another great satire in this movie is the extended opening which was poking fun at the movie itself. The third use of satire I would say is the fact that no matter how hard the producer wants to get rid of his wife he is still with her in the end of the movie.

5. Exclusive release is a movie that premiers in restricted locations initially. A great example of an exclusive release is the movies viewed at the annual WonderCon movie festival in SanFrancisco, California. Some examples of these movies for 2006 are Ultimate Avengers: The Movie!, Broken Saints, The Fans' Tale of Firefly and Serenity-A Documentary.

Saturated booking and saturated release is when a film is released simultaneously in as many locations in the United States and sometimes in the world as possible. Some examples of this was the movie World Trade Center, Flight 93, and How To Eat Fried Worms.

Limited Release is the practice of initially distributing a film only in major cities and expanding distribution according to its success or failure. Three great examples of limited release are See No Evil, OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies, and Arven.

Platforming is when a studio uses the practice of distributing a film in gradually widening markets and theaters so that it slowly builds its reputation and momentum through reviews and word-of-mouth. Some really good example of this is a movie called Brothers of the Head and Conker or Perfect Dark Zero
