I've just taken a screenshot from the Channel 4 trailer for Leaving Neverland: Michael Jackson and Me which I'm going to upload to images https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9573980/

I can't work out whether I should class it as:
1 - Poster
2 - Still Frame
3 - Publicity
As there's no information in the "Image facts and questions" section, about what publicity is.
https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/images-videos/imdb-image-faqs/G64MGN2G43F42PES?ref_=helpa...

All it says is:
1 - Poster - An official poster created by the studio used to promote or advertise the title.
2 - Still Frame - A single static image ("frame") taken from the actual film or show.

1 - Technically it is a "Poster" as it's from Channel 4 the co-producers of the show.
2 - Technically it is a "Still Frame" however it's from the trailer advertising the show, not the show itself.
3 - Technically it is "Publicity" too, but what does IMDB mean by "Publicity"?



So is the above image a poster, a still image, or publicity?

Examples of publicity photos include photos of things like modeling and events, I think.

Typically they are images from a press kit or similar.
