I don’t know about you guys, but I have always enjoyed watching good trailers from time to time, even when the movie is already released! For me, a trailer is good when they:
Put a good soundtrack that reveals the tone of the movie and at the same time, combines pretty well with the trailer.
Doesn’t give all the content away and instead, it gives you just enough to make you super intrigue!
It gives you an idea of what the movie is about and what will you expect, some trailer just don’t do that and then you take the risk of watching what could be a bad movie or just not your type of film.
Don’t use original soundtracks from other movies, but this is especially for Puerto Rican movie trailers, which are horrible btw.
They do not use a narrator, I just can’t stand them, it makes the trailer super cheesy!! But some exceptions can be made I guess, like for comedies.
So yeah, that’s my criteria and I’m sure I have more, but I just can’t remember right now.
Ok, now let’s share!
First, Suicide Squad!!
One of the best trailer I have seen so far!! They freaking used Bohemian Rhapsody and it fit so well!! Plus, how they managed to time some scenes and sync them with the song, ugh, pure awesomeness and it looks like a super fun movie!
Evil Dead (2013):
Warning! Super gory!
I think they did a fantastic job with this trailer, I loved how the trailer begins with a well acted scene (thanks to Jane Levy) showing us a very disturbed women who was attacked by something in the woods. But then, they show us all these super shocking, crazy and gory scenes and all them with practical effects! And the soundtrack is the cherry on top! This trailer really prepares you for what’s coming.
Also, that part where she yells cut it, cut it!, so creepy and cool at the same time.
This trailer is the definition of intrigue! When I first watched this I was like: Wait, what the hell is happening? What did they discovered? What the hell are they fighting?
Also, the soundtrack was super awesome! Those small screams in the background gave me shivers >_<
I will add more later, soon I will be taking a class so I don’t have time. (And yes, I will add the Deadpool trailers)
So, what’s your favorite movie trailer?
