THE PROBLEM WITH MODERN MOVIE TRAILERS



Written by Fin Murphy

In this video, YouTube series Now You See It examines what a film trailer is and explains the flaws with modern ones. NYSI describes a trailer as a short story, containing all of the elements a film has aside from the all important cliffhanger- the hook that makes you want to see the full feature.

As trailers have evolved due to the rise of television - necessitating shorter length and less narration - the newer elements that are introduced soon become familiar and bland; however, some changes are suggested that could make the form interesting again.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
