THE REAR VIEW: Movie Trailers

Over the years they have become the best part of going to the cinema.  A highly anticipated one can debut online and quickly break the internet.  And often times, they are the topic of discussion more so than what they are designed to promote.  I speak, of coruse, about the movie trailer.  In the latest reel of The Rear View, film trailer editor Joshua Dunn joins me to discuss the art form of the film trailer.

From the early beginnings of just previewing whole scenes from movies to the big voiceover days of Don Lafontaine to the overused “Inception Horn” of recent years, trailers are sometimes more exciting than the films they are supposed to market.
