WHAT ARE FILM TRAILERS?

A film trailer is a brief introduction to an upcoming release which usually lasts only a few minutes in length. They try to give the watching audience a brief idea about what the film is going to be about by using genre features to suggest the story structure and creating drama. They often include key character introductions and uses of music.

WHERE DO WE SEE FILM TRAILERS?

Film trailers are shown before other films at the cinemas which is where typical target audiences may be found. Trailers will also be shown on TV. Certain genres will be shown at different times, for example, a trailer for a horror film would be shown after the water shed. Film trailers are also put onto YouTube as advertising where they can be shared and speculated about to create further interest.

WHEN ARE THEY RELEASED?

Film trailers are often released between 2-12 months before the film is scheduled to release. This usually depends upon the size of the film. The first teaser trailer for the upcoming Star Wars movie was released one year before the schedule of film release as it will create a hype which will continue to circulate and grow as the year progresses and as more teasers are released.
