IFC Top 50 Trailers

Regardless of what you think about the films themselves, movie trailers have the ability to cleverly create intrigue in an audience. This interesting list from IFC has a lot of recent films on it, including some surprisingly good trailers and a bit of history about the movie trailer's origin (like why they're called trailers, even though they precede the film).

  1. I don't agree with the list, but I like the idea and history of it. Big fan of the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind trailer. This one.

  2. Cam, that one should have definitely made the list! I was curious as to why so many recent films trumped older trailers...but then I watched the older trailers and realized why. I gotta admit, Alien's trailer might be one of the best one's I've ever seen, so I'm glad it was #1.
