Posters are great ways to promote movies. They visually show crucial components that stimulate excitement and interest in upcoming films. Nevertheless, using posters as movie promotional tools presents certain issues. Given the high volume of film releases annually, it can be challenging to differentiate oneself in a saturated market. Moreover, assessing their efficacy can pose a significant challenge. The movie advertising industry stands to benefit significantly from augmented reality's (AR) rapid development. It has the potential to generate interest in upcoming films by creating interactive and immersive experiences. This study aims to understand how Malaysian youths view AR movie promotion to determine the best approaches to creating AR-based movie promotions. Three augmented reality (AR) experiences promoting the local film "Roh" were developed and tested on university students aged 18 to 25. The results illustrate the perceptions of the Malaysian youths regarding AR movie promotion and suggest optimal approaches to creating AR-based movie promotions that appeal to this demographic.
