The list is in no particular order. I don’t know if I would be able to rate an absolute favorite, since many trailers do different for me. Some, like the James Bond trailers, just pump me up. Others make me think “wow, that looks really amazing!” (True Grit). Others just hit some emotional chord for some reason (Social Network, 127 Hours). With that said, here is the list.
This was the first trailer that I ever really, really liked. The music alone is amazing, but the trailer itself is such an awesome way to reintroduce James Bond after a six year hiatus. I am such a nerd, that in high school, I used to watch this trailer before going to school, cause it pumped me up.
I was never a huge fan of the Terminator movies, but this trailer really caught my attention. It made me go and rewatch all the older Terminators, and I was really excited for this one. Unfortunately, the movie was nowhere as cool as the trailer.
When I first saw this trailer, I thought it was a documentary about some race issue in South Africa. I almost turned it off, cause it wasn’t something that interested me. Then they showed the space ship. Interest peaked!
I don’t know what it is, but something with way the music compliments the images really strikes me as amazing. I also like how dark and serious a story about Facebook can look. It gives me shivers.
This trailer just makes you say “What the F is this? It looks awesome!” As a 17 year old, it blew my mind.
While the movie wasn’t that amazing, the cinematography, and unique images and what seemed to be some incredible action scenes, really caught my attention. This trailer made me REALLY look forward to the movie.
I was never a Star Trek fan, but when I saw this trailer, I just thought “WOW! That looks freaking awesome!!” And indeed, it was.
Basically a normal action movie trailer, but it highlights so many interesting aspects of the story that it made me really excited to see it.
A great movie that is totally underrated. The trailer is so creepy, and so intriguing!
Like with the Matrix trailer, this just blew my mind. The uniqueness of the images and story, as well as knowing that it was from the mind of Christopher Nolan really made me excited for this movie. You can’t watch the trailer and not think “this looks awesome… and seems really interesting!”
I never even heard of this movie until it came out. When I heard of it, I thought it was going to be some stupid action movie. But upon seeing the trailer, I was blown away, and couldn’t wait to see the movie. The trailer is simply bad ass. It captures all the aspects of the movie so well, that it blows me away. The last 20 seconds gives me shivers!
Like with True Grit, I had never even heard of this movie until it was already released. Though, like with True Grit, it captures the essence of the movie so well that it is incredible. As usual, the combination of a great song, some powerful images, and good editing gives me shivers.
