Movie trailers used to be cool. Most would tease you with a taste, trying to entice you to come see what the heck that was going to be. Nowadays because market research apparently informed studios that showing viewers everything gets a better turnout, most trailers leave little to the imagination. As in, mass audiences prefer knowing what they're in for even if the trailer shows parts of the last reel, and thus today we tend to get a synopsis of a movie instead.
So in tribute to the then and now, Friday Fun is a few of my favourite 'just a taste' trailers...
And the original theatrical trailer for ALIEN here.
"I'm screaming but no one can hear me!!!!!"
And a few of my favourite "show everything including some of the plot but it still looks so awesome I need to see it' trailers:
Because they make me smile.
