Too Much Revealed In A Movie Trailer?
on Dec 11, 2012 at 6:34:11 pm

Mark commented in the Oblivion thread about the trailer revealing too much and it seems like it happens so often. I love making short films, and a trailer should follow a lot of those steps, but if we see the whole movie arc, then doesn't that take the "teaser" out of the "trailer"? I've seen the trailer for The Impossible quite a bit lately, and it even shows the family reuniting at the end. Why do they do this? Does anybody else have some good examples?

I think The Descendants also gives away too much.

Frankly, I think an easier list to make would be of trailers that DON'T give it all away. Bound to be shorter.

Yes, Cast Away, Great choice. I remember watching that trailer way back when and thinking it showed the whole movie.
