Best Movie Trailers Ever

This most likely has been done before, but I love the art of movie trailers--Why aren't they included as much as they used to be on DVD (and Bluray)?

But I'd like to dedicate this thread to a terrific artform. I found these to be some of the most imaginative, well cut and innovative:

<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/QYTqhmzROko" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


What are your favorite trailers? Remember: it doesn't have to belong to a film you like--I'm not much a fan of "Magnolia" but I love the main trailer.


(If these embeddings cause any trouble, I'll take them down.)

Oooh. Almost forgot this gem. Best timed-to-the-music trailer ever.

That's a good one. And while I loathe the Special Editions, TESB SE trailer is pretty sweet.

This trailer seems to never last at youtube, but I'll give it a shot anyway

I post this in every one of these "Best Trailer" threads (I haven't looked for them but they're out there.) it'd be perfect if it weren't for the text.

Re: Best Movie Trailers Ever

One of the best examples surpassing of the movie trailer surpassing the advertised movie in every freakin' way:

<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/weELpc3pYMs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Best bit: "MY GOD, WHAT HAVE I DONE?" Perfect.

I still really enjoyed W.; it was more of a biographical film than the more stylish Nixon and it's moral thread was much clearer. The trailer is amazing though and the Tony Scott-version it portends would have been great.

Re: Best Movie Trailers Ever

My fav trailer of all time is from Star Wars I (TPM).

Not saying the movie was the best, but boy did that trailer fire up myself and all of my buddies.
