In the trailer Green Street. Britain is portrayed as a dangerous place and the people are portrayed as violent and thugs. This is seen in the beginning where the shot of the American boy in America is bright and sunny and as soon as he lands in England its automatically grey giving the idea that this place is not a happy place which is then followed by shots of violence. The representation of English people in the trailer is very realistic as England used to be very aggressive over football, it still is aggressive but not as it was 50years ago. People all over the world can relate to this film as football is a worldwide sport.

In the trailer Bullet Boy, Britain is portrayed as dangerous, this is shown from the text at the beginning saying “there are thousands of guns on our street� this portrays Britain as a violent place, the main parts represented as violent are the slums of London. A lot of people can relate to the film Bullet Boy but may be deterred in visiting Britain due to the stereotypes.
