You know, the coming attractions of soon to be released movies. Now adays I think the average movie has six or seven 'movie trailers'. I really don't mind seeing so many since, unfortunately, the trailers are better than the movie I'm about to waste two hours on.
Some trailers that I remember the most? Edward Scissorhands is one. After seeing that trailer I vowed no to never see it; it was that bad. But, being the softy I am, I ended up loving that movie.
JAWS had a great trailer before it came out, as did Close Encounters. Or who can forget the trailer to Batman The Dark Knight? I think the success of that movie owes much to that trailer.
What are some of the best trailers you can recall? And how about some bad trailers that betrayed what was a good movie?
