    The best film teaser trailers...

    Teaser trailers are just as they're created to be, a tease, not really revealing much from the film itself but sometimes do. To build up excitement, and often seen a year or more in advance before the film drops into theaters. Some can't live up to the hype, like Godzilla or Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Thought be fun to look back at some exciting teaser trailer collections of the past.


    Psycho (Learn from the best. Perhaps the best tease/trailer in history, it shows absolutely nothing from the film but a tour of the Bates residence. At 6 minutes, may be the longest teaser trailer in film history! Should be noted too, the actress in the shower is Vera Miles, what a way to fool the audience)

    Re: The best film teaser trailers...

    I have to agree with u Speilberg knows how to keep people intrigued/wanting more...
    The Godzilla one is interesting. Many Godzilla fans were excited by a new CGI Godzilla movie. But once they saw the Teaser and noted how Godzilla's feet resembled that of a T-rex's (found in Jurassic Park) they were displeased. Many elements from Godzilla were missing in the new movie which made it seem..not as a great movie.
    I'd have to say Terminator 2 teaser would be my favorite.

    Dark Knight's teaser was important as far as selling Heath Ledger as the Joker. Hearing that voice and that laugh sold me on Ledger and got me excited for the extended trailer.

    I think the Godzilla re-boot is one of the best examples that no matter how much hype you manage to build for a movie, it can still fail miserably at the box office if it fails to meet expectations. I remember being as thrilled as everyone else to see the monster, even though I was a kid terrified of the actual movie. Then the monster ends up being some weird T-Rex looking thing, with none of Godzilla's personality, and everybody is disappointed.

    Then Cloverfield comes along, and we get the "What does it look like?" hype all over again, heh.

    Re: The best film teaser trailers...

    The Phantom Menace is probably the most memorable teaser for me... because Star Wars had been so huge, the long break, and the idea that another trilogy was coming. Sadly, watching it now brings back the disappointing reality of that movie... but still a great teaser.

    -On similar lines, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, had a great, goosebump-inducing teaser, which I like more than the film.

    -The latest Star Trek film had a great teaser (with the building of the Enterprise and a brief monologue by Leonard Nimoy).

    -The bootleg of the 2009 Tron 2 Comic-con teaser, - the excited crowd reaction makes it that much better.

    -The Batman Begins teaser is terrific. I saw this in the theater and had no idea that Batman was returning to the big screen until the wardrobe door opens 2/3rd through. A fantastic reveal.
