As in film trailers, not the ones with wheels.
I'm, basically doing a trailer for a horror film in media and I need a lot of research. So basically, instead of putting about ten threads up in one day I'm spacing them out a bit so I'm not spamming.

(https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1229176 theres the first thread.. on favourite genres of movie, would be very thankful if you vote)

So, say you're in a cinema about to watch a movie which is either 15 or 18 rated. The tarilers come on for upcoming movies. Would you want to go and see a movie more if it had a:
- Theatrical trailer (one where the plot is not disguised, basically you can see where the movie's going to go with it. Usually used for movies made from well known books I think) or a,
- Teaser trailer, where parts you see short parts of dramatic scenes from the movie, to create a sense of mystery (usually used in thriller/horror movies).

I'll take the trailer that hints the plot but doesn't reveal anything

I prefer a teaser trailer, nothing worse than seeing a trailer that looks good so you go see the movie and all the good bits were in the trailer.

Normally I hate teaser trailers UNLESS the film already has enough hype to carry it off, e.g. the Saw series or something like that. I feel like most horror movies, without a big franchise behind them, can't pull off teaser trailers because they're not memorable enough. You'd need to have a lot of really striking images in there in order for it to stick in my mind, I think.

I voted for theatrical, but really somewhere inbetween the two options would be great.

I generally prefer well done teasers, the full trailers tend ot give away too much a lot of times.

Teasers, easily.

Though it does depend on the type of movie... if something like Wedding Crashers had a quick teaser, I'd be all "wtf is this" and probably would never see it.

I hate teaser trailer, because they always look so good , like "Knowing" or "the happening"
but the movies are actually shit

I will, if it turns out good
And I'm not sure yet, whatever my school wants to lend me. They do have some pretty good ones apparently though.

Are you sure your school will trust you with an actual camera?

Ah okay. I've been musing with the idea of doing film as a hobby, and was wondering what a good camera would be without breaking the bank.

Yeah, seeing as they trusted me with a £400 digital SLR to take pictures with for an artical I have to write 'on my movie' today.

It really depends on which movie. There's been some trailers where I don't know if it's a comedy, drama, etc. If you can't tell the genre, you are doing it wrong.

Yamaha RG guitar w/ Floyd Rose

trailers should only capture the film's atmosphere and give a general idea rather than give away the story. most are pretty weak these days, although i loved the trailer for the new cohen brother's movie.

Yeah... I'm making a teaser trailer but it should be very clear that its a horror (:

Theatrical trailers that give the whole plot away are fail theatrical trailers... I prefer them because they give me a better sense of whether I'll like the movie. But if they spoil stuff I won't see the movie for that reason.
