Greatest trailer ever made?

Recommended Posts

For an entire generation, people have experienced Starwars the only way it's been possible...on a TV screen. But if you've only seen it this way, you haven't seen it at all...

I was part of that generation and this is the moment when I understood what kind of phenomena it has been for the previous generation of fans who discovered it on the silver screen in 1977. This is the moment I went totally nuts for Starwars! One of my greatest memory in theaters.

The movie may not be up to par with the original trilogy in terms of acting or story but this trailer is still one of best in the last decade

One of the best trailers I've ever seen. Even won some awards for being so awesome.

 

Nice avatar btw. ;)

This is one of the most thrilling trailers I've ever seen. And the film is brilliant too. Very underrated imo.

Is this in terms of effectiveness?

 

In terms of recent years...The Man Of Steel trailer has to be there. Transformers 1 theatrical trailer. IRON MAN 1 teaser trailer. Inception final trailer was good but the film didn't open all that high. SPIDER-MAN. Lord of the Rings final trailer. The Mummy. Pearl Harbor. 

 

All time wise? BATMAN 1989 is probably the best. Jurassic Park had a great one too. Independence Day. Doctor Schivago. Star Wars 1. 

 

I wont even consider sequels, they are promoting established characters which is 100x easier than it is for franchise starter types.

I would argue that the best trailer would be the one that got you most pumped to see a film that turned out to be crap as it means they really maximised the potential of the footage given as opposed to say forrest Gump where you could make a great trailer just by showing any random minute of the film.Ignoring what I just said above completely though...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9ReaVWjTrQ

Star Trek trailer is a great choice, Heretic. Definitely one of the best of all-time. Haven't seen this video posted in the thread, but it deserves consideration:

 

EDIT: Haku beat me to the punch by an hour. TDK December 2007 trailer.

I have not seen posted these (although first has been mentioned):

 

LOTR Trilogy teaser

 

 

The Dark Knight teaser

 

 

Two extraordinary teaser. Marvel could have done the same than LOTR with Phase 2, for instance

Going back for some older ones:

 

- directed by Stan Winston, I remember this bringing the house down

 

- goes offbeat for the first half until the awesome Arnold reveal, plus glimpses of insane action (for the time)

 

 

And then, from this year, a seriously amazing trailer for THE GREAT GATSBY:
