Question about Red Band trailers...

Are they still shown in theaters? In all my years of movie-going, I don't believe I've ever seen one.

Why, I saw a few red bands in the theater tonight. :) Switchblade Sisters was one of `em. Ah, they sure don't make trailers like they used to.

the last Red Band trailer i remember working on was for Road Trip. but actually, now that i think about it, Brick had a red band version of the same trailer everybody's seen. i saw it at the arclight in hollywood. no nudity, or graphic violence. just violates some of the mpaa's rules for general audiences.

ahh, here it is..

When I worked for Regal they said that red band trailers could not be run, even on R-rated movies, unless they were specifically approved by someone at the company. They asked me to put a trailer for "Town and Country" on "Bridget Jones's Diary", but the only copy available was the red-band version so they told me to scrap it.

Of course, that company would probably run a paid commercial with tons of F-words in front of a G-rated movie if they were paid enough money for it.

I saw the red band version of the Brick trailer at Duck Season the other day.

What's funny is that Duck Season also had a red band trailer as well. Why? I have no idea

The Brick red band trailer was fairly tame too.

So not only do chain theaters ban NC-17/Unrated films from being shown,but also red-band trailers for R rated films in front of R rated films?

That is pretty stupid I think. And the only time I have ever seen a "Restricted" trailer in theaters was at an arthouse theater and that was it.

Not that stupid if you think about it. A parent might take a child into an R-rated movie having researched the movie and signed off on it. Then all sorts of unexpected sh*t shows up in the red band trailers before it.

I'm fine with the decision.

I've seen several of them, although I can't think of any recently. That may have something to do with the fact I don't go to the movies much anymore, though.

When I go to Art House theatres, they usually show red band trailers. Nudity and cursing abound.
