Movie trailers...

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?

I was waiting for someone to say something before posting:

It's the worst trailer for hauling rocks in....yuck, yuck, yuck. I was hoping the link title didn't give away the joke.

In all seriousness though, I haven't watched a whole lot of movies at the theater in my lifetime so I'm not sure what would be the worst trailer I've ever seen.

I read Pistolpete's comment and had no idea what this thread was about. Now I do. I think the trailer I remember the most was the one for Titanic. I had such a crush on Decaprio back then and wow it looked so good. I know it is the in thing to do to be hating Titanic. I liked it then and I like it now and I still like Decaprio! :> :> :>

Have you noticed how they try to play trailers before a movie that they think the audience for that movie will like. If you're seeing a horror movie, you get trailers for six horror movies and two teen comedies. It always worries me when I go see a movie that looks good, but the trailers tailored to the audience for the movie look horrible. I start to wonder what I might have gotten myself into.
