If you want to see what’s coming up in the next few months, the first thing you usually do is to Google the movies directory. But it doesn’t just stop there, you don’t really want to waste your time on something that you may not enjoy, so you watch the trailer and decide then and there if it’s worth your time, effort and money.
But watching movie trailers has more value than just being able to decide whether you want to see the final movie or not. At their core, trailers are advertisements, and the information that the industry gathers from these trailers is invaluable. For example, if a trailer does well, it’s expected that the movie may do well. Trailers also help the industry predict which areas and audiences will welcome the movie best, where to advertise it heavily to make the most revenue, and where to host further merchandising opportunities (although the latter is part trailer, part success of the movie, but it does give a fantastic insight into the success of the movie)
Most trailers use shorts of the film to advertise and accentuate the story line, without giving away the main plot or the ending. Trailers are NOT spoilers; rather, they entice a person to watch the movie, series or television show when it makes its debut on screen.
That’s why we’ve also included a review system as we know how important it is to have that feedback and be able to read it. Don’t forget to leave your reviews after watching your chosen trailers.
