    Cutting a trailer for a film is an art in and of itself sometimes makign the movies they advertise better adn sometimes worse.

    So what are your favorite Movie Trailers?

    Here's one of my all time favorite that actually has very little do tod with the movie, but cracks me up every single time i watch it.

    The trailer to "300" was epic and rousing. "This is Sparta!" It took a while to get old.

    What's taking the extreme Japanese gore trailers so long? C'mon people! I want to see some sliced open arteries!

    @Harchangel, I don't remember laughing this hard in a long time. The video you posted is fantastic. All trailers should be this creative.

    One I liked was "No Country for Old Men" redband trailer.I thought it captured the feel of the movie, the music is nice and the pacing is good, unlike "There Will Be Blood"'s trailer, which made it look like an action film. I'd have made this trailer a bit more gloomy, though. Maybe with the sheriff's initial narration illustrated by images.

    @ Zombinoid- I still sometimes catch myself saying 'Sparta' when I mean 'Madness'.

    I'm noticing that trailers now are way better than the actual films. Spider Man 3 had one of the greatest trailers I've seen in years, and it turned out to suck fat donkey balls as a feature film. But the one I'm linking is maybe my favorite trailer ever. The Shining

    That is one of the most wonderfully absurd things i've ever seen....wow....just wow.

    Seen that one already, and I love it. I think Kubrick would have found it hilarious.

    Really though, I find trailers are much better than the movies themselves at this point. That's saying something interesting about our culture and marketing... but seriously, The Dark Knight Trailer is almost perfect, and the Hellboy 2 trailer is brilliant.

    Those guys who did 'Shining' did a whole series of reasonably funny ones. Sleepless in Seattle became a horror movie, Mary Poppins too. I'm sure you can find them all clicking through to You Tube.

    Oh, The Dark Knight trailer. Fantastic. That shot of Joker yelling "hit me!" and Batman sliding his bike is amazing. The trailer captures the Joker's legend as a villain perfectly.

    @ Cyman

    Totally agree with you on The Dark Knight trailer.

    This is another small simple trailer that just cracks me up. I'm hoping the movie is as funny as the trailer.

    "If anything, I make the shirt look fat". Brilliant. And Sarah Silverman's so amazingly cute (and her "I'm fucking Matt Damon" video cracks me up).

    Great trailer. Calm and without stupid slogans.

    This Spider Man 3 trailer got me so unbelievably excited, and then the movie was like a punch in the face.
    And I keep wanting to say Star Wars 3 had a good trailer, but looking back on them they're all horrible, and remind me of how shitty that movie was/is.

    Where's Larry? It may feel like typecasting but Jeff without Larry is like only one half of a comedic equation.

    Still, looking pretty pretty good from what was shown in the trailer.

    Next time I see a trailer that opens with a single sonorous bass drum to which the images fade in and out I'm going to implode on someone.

    This is what the Spider-Man 3 trailer should have looked like:

    Edgar Wright is Brilliant.
