This idea came from the Jurassic Park thread, where several people stated that the JP3 trailer was one of the worst ever! I agreed, and for those of you who haven't seen it, you're missing absolute bugger-all! Thus the idea for this thread started. We can all name our fave films, or the worst ones, and the ones we want people to see, but no one ever gave them the attention they deserved. So let's take this one step further. What trailers have people seen that really made them want to see the movie in question? What was the worst trailer you saw, and why was it bad? Here's some for starters.... Strange Trailer: 1) Trainspotting (The one on the beginning of the Reservoir Dogs video, with Renton being tied to a train track): one of the most surreal trailers I've seen, as it had nothing to do with the film whatsoever, and still contained scenes that didn't end up in any edit of the final film. Worst Trailer: (Excluding Jurassic Park 3) 1) Probably those trailers that either state just the title of the film, and then simply say "Coming Soon" or whatever - Totally pointless! Or, those trailers that give everything away in three or four minutes, thus removing any incentive to see the end product! Best Trailer: 1) Pearl & Dean: one to be brought back, I think! 2) The "Grindhouse Releasing" teaser, that is on "The Beyond" and "Cannibal Ferox" DVD's. Very seventies, and very funky! 3) Terminator 2's trailers: total action that never lets up, just like the film, and leaves you wanting more. It also makes you think that the trailer showcases the best stuff, and then the film exceeds that by a mile! 4) The "7 Deadly Sins" trailer for "Se7en": Morgan Freeman exmplains the 7 deadly sins, and tells us we can expect more to come, In between each sin, we see part of the result of the murder of each "sinner". Very grim, but very clever!
