Does Paramount have something against including trailers?

None of their catalog titles seem to include the trailer. As far as I can tell, they are the only studio to make a regular practice of this. I know that trailers are a relatively minor extra, but it still ticks me off.

as well as Sony too.

Only studio to include trailers for older catalog titles are (pre Sony) MGM and Fox and Warner.

Actually, Paramount is one of the few remaining studios that'll at least occasionally include a trailer(as well as teasers). Universal is the worst these days. I can't remember the last DVD they released(not counting reissued titles) which included the trailer. Buena Vista is another bad one too.

Yes, Paramount are a thrifty studio who, as I understand it, don't want to pay for the clearances for the music used on many of their trailers; though they have no problem still charging full prices for their DVDs. But I haven't bought a Paramount DVD in a long time, so things may have changed since the days they were releasing the Friday the 13th DVDs individually. I also think they didn't want to pay to license the original movie artwork for parts 5-8, but who knows the real story?

Funny because Paramount used to release their discs with ONLY a trailer. Ironic.
