Get Super-Pumped By This Supercut of Blockbuster Movie Trailers

Hollywood blockbusters are often criticized for subscribing to a typical formula: beloved hero has goal, beloved hero faces conflict that jeopardizes said goal, beloved hero fights enemies and achieves said goal. (Can we be screenwriters, too?)

But has anyone ever stopped to think about the trailers of these movies? With the latest supercut to hit the interwebs, it appears that, yes — not only has someone thought about this, but they have actually taken the time to showcase it to the world.

In this video, YouTube vlogger The Nerdwriter has created a supercut the final shots of blockbuster movie trailers, including scenes from "The Dark Knight Rises", "World War Z" and "Battleship". Not surprisingly, when these clips are cut together — quite seamlessly, might we add — we essentially get a minute-long Michael Bay movie followed by some dramatic music and eerie silences. Get pumped, guys! Get More »

The Missing 'Jack Reacher' Explosion and 7 Other Trailer Baits and Switches

Tom Cruise in "Jack Reacher" Paramount

Advertising is a bait and switch culture, no question. So many commercials for movies often create a false impression, whether its selling a movie about cancer as a raucous comedy or taking the few moments of action from a lame thriller and making it look like "Die Hard."

Sometimes a trailer just plain old doesn't have the scene in question, and The Telegraph reports that this led a customer known only as "J Congdon" to post a complaint to New Zealand's Advertising Standards Authority in regards to one split-second explosion left on the cutting room floor of Tom Cruise vehicle "Jack Reacher."

9 Trailers That Spoiled the Whole Damn Movie

The Impossible Summit

By all accounts, "The Impossible" is one of the best movies of the year. Not just heartwarming but legitimately moving, it stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as a couple who, along with their three children, are flung into chaos and danger during the deadly 2004 tsunami. It's a story that is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat and leave a lump in your throat as you wonder if any of them can possibly survive.

Unless, of course, you've seen the trailer, in which case you know the answer — and the plot of the entire film. Get More »

The 10 Best Trailers of 2012

The Great Gatsby Warner Bros.

There's a certain art to making a great movie trailer. And frankly, hardly anybody seems to have mastered that art.

Indeed, for every halfway-interesting trailer that comes out there are ten more that give away the entire plot, deliver nothing but obvious jokes about farts and crotch punches or are simply a series of incredibly fast jump cuts with weird music playing over them. In short, they are crap. Get More »

Puss-in-Boots

Now that every trailer for a 2011 theatrical release has become something of a retrospective, why not look back on all of them all at once?

The year-end mashups are just getting more and more impressive -- and epic! In this one, sights and sounds from every movie trailer released this year have been put together into one giant mega-super-trailer -- and one that runs just a little over five minutes, at that. Who knew that "Sucker Punch" contributed so many thematic images to the 2011 cinema experience? Or that "The Thing" contributed anything at all? Get More »
