An overlooked artform

I love trailers. They are often the best thing about going to the cinema. They also feel like they have more effort put into them sometimes. Well, I suppose once you are actually seeing the film you’ve paid your money, right?!

They often have great music (necessarily not from the film’s soundtrack as the score is almost always done after the trailer!), and almost always make me want to see the film in question, even when it is apparent that the film itself will be a massive letdown.

I am also Don LaFontaine’s biggest fan. If you think you don’t know who he is, say the phrase “In a world…” whilst trying to imitate an 80-a-day smoker and you will pretty much have it. He is a legend!
