If you have read any of my previous articles, you would know I am a huge movie person. I love going to the movies, buying DVD's and watching them over and over again. One of my favorite parts about going to the movie theater is the trailers before the film. I'm one of those people who would never want to miss the previews, it's the best part of the cinema experience! In some cases, movie trailers can be edited to be even better than the movie itself. I love everything about movie trailers from the music, the epic shots and the way it tells a captivating story in just a few minutes. Since this is something that I am pretty passionate about I felt that I would share a few of my all time favorite movie trailers, which also just so happen to be some of my favorite movies.
1. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows"
"Harry Potter" is my favorite franchise of all time and this is the most EPIC trailer I've ever seen. Everything about it gives me chills and it perfectly captured the conclusion to this masterpiece.
One of my favorite films of all time, the trailer for "Boyhood" is so simple but so nostalgic, it honestly made me cry the first time I saw it. I knew I loved this movie just by watching the trailer. "Hero" by Family of the Year is also one of my favorite songs because of this.
3. "Les Misérables"
I still remember the first time I saw this trailer. I was in my freshman year of high school and I was standing around my chorus teacher's computer with many of my friends, and we were in complete awe of how beautiful the trailer was. We knew right then that this would be an incredible movie musical, and we were right.
4. "The Social Network"
One of the most creative and inspiring trailers and movies out there, I always find myself watching this because the trailer itself is a work of art. I still think this film was robbed of the Best Picture win but it will always be in my heart.
A new favorite film of mine, this trailer just hits me right in the feels. Maybe it's because of my Irish background, my aspiration to live in the city, or my love for love, this movie makes me feel complete and it deserves more appreciation.
I love a good indie movie, but I notice that 4/5 of the trailers I put here are best-picture nominees, which makes me think, do the critically acclaimed films have better produced trailers than independent unknown films? Let me know what you think and share some of your favorite movie trailers, I'd love to watch them.
