Pretty sure this is the right forum...
Anyway, I'm a bit of a nut for a good movie trailer. Trailers that tell a good story, have good music, and are just plain cool I love. Particularly the more epic ones. Do you love a good trailer, too? Trailers that stick with you, whose music contines to echo in your mind for years to come? Trailers that tell gripping stories, holding powerful meaningful for you? Or trailers that are just plain cool? So I'm here to ask you: "What's your favorite movie trailer?"
First I'll tell you my favorites. There are four.
10,000 B.C.: One of my all-time favorite movies, complete with two awesome trailers. (although this still counts as one of the four) The first trailer gives a general overview of what to expect from the ancient world, combined with epic drum music to make for one cool trailer. The second trailer digs deeper into the story, and features equally awe-inspiring music.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End: I think this one works through the story very well, and who will ever forget that introduction to the whirlpool, or that awesome choir letting it all loose as Jack and Jones duel it out on a mast? Terrifically exciting music all the way through.
Avatar: Ah, the most financially successful movie of all time, complete with an awesome trailer. Beautiful visuals, a gripping and meaningful story, glazed over with great music that builds to a spine-tingling crescendo as the trailer moves along. And I ain't talkin' about the 2-minute trailer, I mean the full-length 4-minute one. Well, 3:40 to be exact.
Iron Man 3: They obviously went all out with this one. What such story could be more epic? Here this guy who's basically on the tippy-top of the world, suffering from nightmares and ultimately getting his butt kicked and being thrown down the long, long way to the ground, and forced to try and survive on his own wits? Opposed by a criminal mastermind and leader of (assumably) a huge and widespread terrorist organization. Okay, so this one hasn't come out yet, we'll see if the movie lives up to the trailer. But then, I guess they always do when this much work goes into the trailer. And what beautiful epic music (complete with choir, always a tremendous plus) that as always, builds up to an awesome crescendo!
So what about you? And I'm talkin' PG-13 or less movies, don't give me anything higher than that, alright?
