    Seems to me that once even bad movies used to manage trailers that made you interested in unwisely seeing the film but now most trailers just seem to be a lot of disconnected , unexciting garbage that's leaves me thinking wtf?
    It's all Meg's fault.

    I don't think you have gotten much worse lately.

    Neither megabyteme, what I hate however is they reveal the WHOLE plot so it really doesn't entice you to see the film.

    What is a move trailer? Is that the thing at the end of german tourists' cars that I see in the summer?

    Btw I haven't noticed any changes. Prolly cause I haven't watched a lot of trailers lately.
    I'm back. The downside is that I'm also old now.

    Yeah I know but it seems that unless you are a Mod then tread titles are indelibly carved in stone .
    I think it's some sort of conspiracy .

    Many movies are incomprehensible (Transformers 2) or just plain terrible (most rom-coms), so it's no surprise the trailers are as well.

    Almost worse IMO, is the tendency to frontload the trailer with all the good stuff...Kick Ass comes to mind.
    After seeing Hit Girl's big hallway fight scene in the trailer, I was expecting something even better in the film but no, that was it.

    I haven't even seen the trailers for most of the films I've really liked lately (Winter's Bone, for instance), so I'm kinda out of the loop anyway.

    Those are my favourite; it saves you some cash/time and gives you enough to BS through with your co-workers.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
