Furthermore, it can be perceived that from films' posters to their end credits, are unseen factors which tend to be highly pedagogical for English language acquisition when imaginatively and seriously handled by language educators. This inventive awareness anchors with the theory of audio- visual literacy which supports the said material for the enhancement of learners' linguistic and communicative competence. This concept fetches us to a solid idea that every film's features do not only function as purely entertainment but are possibly noteworthy in language achievement. In other words, ...
