The Trailer is The Thing
The Trailer is The Thing

I think the internet has changed the importance and use of movie trailers. Before the internet, a trailer would come on television a few weeks before the movie was released. Or, we saw move trailers in theaters before seeing a movie. Now there are previews of the trailers, release dates for the trailers, and multiple trailers. Movie trailers have become a huge internet marketing tool.

 

I admit that I play right into the trailer marketing. As a self professed science fiction nerd, I loved the Avengers Infinity Wars movie and am anxiously awaiting the sequel. So, when the first trailer for Avengers Endgame was released, on December 8, I quickly watched it, several times. And then I clicked onto a few websites I follow to read their comments on the trailer. Apparently, I wasn’t alone. Entertainment Weekly reported the Avengers 4 trailer broke the record for first day viewing.

 

While I am already happily anticipating Avengers 4 the release of the trailer has absolutely increased my anticipation. Do movie trailers affect your movie viewing choices?

    If I view a trailer in a movie theater it might attract my interest in the movie. That has happened. I do view trailers for netflix and other series I watch and follow but prefer the real thing.

    Absolutely! Like you, I'm a scifi fan and am excited about a few upcoming movies. What I don't like is when the release date at the end of the trailer is 6, or more, months away. It's such a tease! LOL

    Trailers don't influence me too much. I wait for the reviews.

    I get sucked in but don’t follow up as obsessively as I used to . It used to be I’d point at my boys and say “ We are going !” Empty nest changed that impulse . The latest trailer for “ The Mule “ with Clint Eastwood has me psyched though !
