The film poster, in its cinematic journey of more than 100 years, has survived both, the test of time and technology. It has also re-emerged as a trend that is regaining popularity

Soccer’s new stars
...& the fading ones
As the 2012-13 football season gets underway, let’s take look at the rise of a new generation of talented players, as well as some of the older stars, who might struggle to keep up with their lofty standards

Needless to say, almost all of these have been centred around children.
