    Wow, I had forgotten how powerful that Man of Steel trailer was (probably since the film itself wasn’t quite so effective). Trailers really can be fun, although the burn of loving a trailer and being disappointed in the final product really hurts sometimes.

  2. Err. . . what happened to anything before the late 1990s such as: The Shining (1980) and The Exorcist (1973) and Alien (1979)? All far superior film trailers to those recent choices above? I could understand if you said they were the best blockbuster trailers of all time but did not see that caveat. I guess “movie” kind of covers it but perhaps it should be the best trailers you like more than best trailers ever 😉

      Nope! In my estimation those don’t have a ton of replay value or feel anymore. In fact, I was so sure that Alien was going to make my list that I watch that trailer first before anything else. Sadly, I was a little disappointed

      • Fair enough. I guess they have no clickbait traction either. Each to their own I guess.

      • Nick Kush says:

        Yup! I definitely see where you’re coming from, however! At the end of the day, this is a personal list so I have some emotional attachment to each piece of it.

      • Of course, it’s all about different opinions. I was just pulling your chain at the hyperbolic nature of “Best Movie Trailers EVER!” – that does not include anything before 1999; so just a bit of friendly banter. I read your very well written reviews and note your site goes for a younger, more commercial film based demographic thus your personal choices are valid. From a cinephiles’ perspective to limit the choices to recent blockbusters and include none of the more classic trailers of yesteryear. But I understand they don’t appeal to the masses as much as DC and Marvel do. As I say each to their own.

      • *… of yesteryear, seems slightly short-sighted.

      • Nick Kush says:

        I here ya!

  3. I mostly agree with your list but I feel there are two more that you could’ve included :
    The Dark Knight Rises – Trailer 3
    Blade Runner 2049 – Announcement Teaser
    Both these were really epic too!

    • Nick Kush says:

      I actually had The Dark Knight Rises on the list until the last second and then I switched it for the Avengers. That was a tough omission.

    One of my favorite trailers of all time is the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser trailer. It set up the dynamic between the characters and what tone to expect from the film without even talking about the plot at all. I watched it over and over for weeks! Or a more recent one is the latest Black Panther trailer. I can’t get enough of that one either.

  5. Cool list! I don’t think I’ve ever fallen in love with a trailer before though.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Then you’re probably smarter than the rest of us that get suckered into seeing movies lol

      • Lol, I think for me if the story/plot sounds interesting enough and there’s no major reason turning me off from seeing the movie (like if the movie is a heavy R-rated or something), I’d generally see it.

        I can’t remember ever not wanting to see a movie and then seeing the trailer and then that changed my mind. I’ve had times were I’ve not wanted to see a movie, but then the public’s love or hate for a movie would make me wanna see it, which is what happened with Wonder Woman. But never did a trailer convince me to seeing a movie I previously didn’t want to see.

        I’ve had the opposite before though: a trailer turning me off from seeing a movie that I previously wanted to see.

      • Nick Kush says:

        Since I’ve started to watch more films I’ve definitely gotten a better eye for what trailers lead to better movies. Buuuuut, since I’m a critic I’m seeing it anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter lol
