    Hopefully, this will make for interesting netTV.

    Movie TRAILERS, please. Not just awesome clips or gifs.

    I would say that we should group them into three rough categories:
    Trailers that are so, soooo bad
    Trailers that are mind-blowing and/or beautiful
    Trailers of the definitive WTF variety

    I'm interested in the construction and design of trailers, of all varieties. Show me your bits!

    Let's get things off to a rousing start, shall we?


    *EDIT: looking back on the two other discussions from years past on trailers, I want to add an addendum to differentiate: If we could, I'd like to avoid fake trailers (e.g., Grindhouse) or fan-made and/or remix trailers. Let's just say I'm more interested in what film companies actually think makes a trailer, for better or worse.

    Here's a fave of mine, for a movie I've still never seen because I can't find the bloody thing.

    Whatever you thought of the movie (and I am of the opinion that's it's a one-watch-only flick), I still think the trailer for it was put together brilliantly.

    I think this is one of the better trailers in recent years -- it summarizes and entices without giving *everything* away.

    (Argh, for some reason I can't get the embed to work, I always have this problem. I put the video's URL into the video/mp3 function, but it doesn't go through)

    Don't use the shortened URL.

    B-movie starring the greatest rock and roll band in the world. Exactly as much fun as it looks.

    No desire to see what was -- according to reviewers -- a pretty average movie, but this trailer is masterful.
