Collecting movie trailers is one of the *very* few hobbies that I have (had in a long time). Memorable movie trailers are those which remain enjoyable even after we have seen the movie. So, I have decided to compile a list of my favourite movie trailers, reverse sorted by preference (though the rankings might not be very accurate for some)
#25. Broken Arrow
My first John Travolta movie. I was totally blown away (at that time) by the movie’s trailer – the uber-cool villain, the concept of a ‘broken arrow’, the exhilarating stunt sequences. The #25 spot was a tie between this and Face/Off, but Broken Arrow managed to squeeze it out by a very slim margin.
The trailer gave a good glimpse of the return of Sylvester Stallone as an aging John Rambo. Despite his age, Rambo can still kick ass (slit, tear-out and butcher, to be more precise). The abundant blood, gore and brutal violence is what set this trailer apart from other “softer” ones.
Always been a huge fan of Greek mythology. So, when I saw this trailer, with its stunning battle sequence, amazing dialogues (ok, I was a lot more impressionable then!), and a bad-ass Brad Pitt as Achilles, I was truly impressed and looked forward to the movie (though how *that* turned out is a whole other story).
#22. Inglourious Basterds
“You haven’t seen war until you have seen it through the eyes of Quentin Tarantino”. Though I am not a big fan of WW2 movies, the music and the premise impressed me, thus earning a spot on this list.
#21. The Notebook
Though the movie seems like yet another sappy love story, the trailer was beautifully edited, with a memorable voice-over.
