Okay, stop me if this is too repetitive, but I took a spin through the archives, and there is a thread for Favorite trailers, but a lot of those are probably old and on DVDs in your basement. How about right now, on the interwebs. Which trailer have you watched today that has really left an impression and you facebook all your friends about and has you counting the days and scraping the pennies together so you can afford to see it opening day for $12 at the downtown cinema?
Bonus points for a working link, I say!
That being said, I’m too lazy to link to the Inception trailer, which everyone has probably already seen, but I am telling you I watched that 10 times and still come back to it. Love it! Interested and intrigued to see where it goes!
Yeah, yeah, shut up I typo’ed in the title!
well, i am really excited about “The Road.” I loved Cormac McCarthy’s book and judging by the trailer, I won’t be disappointed with the movie either.
I try to avoid trailers. They can ruin a film for me.
The new Michael Moore film. Whether you love him or hate him, you have to admit, his trailers are great.
When you can take a boring subject like capitalism and make it look fun by editing, you’ve made a great trailer.
Eyes Wide Shut…
they did a bad bad thing…
Eyes Wide Shut. Love it!
Also, and don’t let the title throw you, The Men Who Stare At Goats.
Looks pretty funny, Clooney, Ewan, Jeff Bridges…
Ever since we discovered it, me and my boyfriend like to watch the Twilight 2 trailer. I highly recommend it.
Looks like a winner!!
I don’t understand trailer fever. I try to go into a film as a blank slate. I don’t even know what The White Ribbon is about, and that’s my most anticipated film of the year.
That’s okay, you don’t have to understand it. In fact I totally understand why people wouldn’t like trailers. Often, I hate them. But also, sometimes I see some that just present the film in such a cool way. In fact there have been a number of trailers of the year which I really enjoyed, but ended up hating the film. Maybe that was my own fault because I formed in my what I thought the movie would be like, or maybe it was the trailer editors fault for making a crap-ass movie look good and intriguing. Either way, when I see a teaser trailer for a film like Inception, it just gets my juices flowing (the good ones), because I am so intrigued! I can’t help it, its my curious nature!
trailers generally look so sad in comparison to the films they represent.
I like the BIG FAN and Where The Wild Things Are trailers, though.
I mean, we can’t forget, its an advertisement and marketing ploy to getting you to go see their film. So obviously they are going to be kind of contrived and superficial. But sometimes they do a great job! I mostly wanted to know what is intriguing people in the upcoming-film-world! So do tell, if its not a trailer that is interesting you about an upcoming film, let’s hear about the photo, the article, the newspaper blurb, the cast list, the sighting of big white trucks in your neighbourhood… whatever, and which film!
A serious man, Shutter Island, The Informant!, and Alice in Wonderland all have amazing trailers.
Tears of the Black Tiger
City of God / Portuguese
City of Lost Children
Requiem for a Dream
Where the Wild Things Are.
It makes me cry. How many trailers can do that?
A serious man
I’ll second Josh Ryan. WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE put tear on my eyes every time I watch it. This never happened to me with any other movie. It’s weird … maybe I’m getting old and too damn nostalgic.
Where the Wild Things Are is probably the best trailer I have ever seen. I have no real problem with trailers. What I do have a problem with is showing clips from a movie. That seems pointless to me.
I’m a big fan of Cormac McCarthy and had no idea the Coens were making the movie. When at a theater I saw the first frames of the trailer, I immediately knew it was No Country…….. “YES!!!”
“Revanche” by Götz Spielmann, one of the best trailers i’ve seen in years.
Well I hardly watch trailers multiple times in one day, But I might over the course of a couple of months and weeks.
The ones that really got me hooked are A Serious Man and Bad Lieutenant: Pot of Call New Orleans
I avoid trailers like the plague. I find that the less I know, the better off I am. Trailers have a tendency to be a little deceptive anyway. Does anyone remember the trailer for The New World? New Line made that movie look like it would be an action flick. Ha!
Tender and cruel..
real and surreal…
terrifying and funny…
nocturnal and diurnal
usual and unusual…
handsome as anything … Pierrot Le Fou
I really hope no one watches trailers over and over, intentionally. I enjoyed the There Will Be Blood trailer, and the trailer Godard made for Mouchette.
