What Sucks...The Trailer for "Network" As Opposed To The Trailer For "The Last Kiss"


Network was a great movie, but man, what a shitty trailer. Take a look at it here- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074958/trailers-screenplay-E10932-10-2

This trailer sucks. It kind of starts off well, but then it completely goes to crap. The sound is horrible, the graphics suck and it basically gives the whole movie away. Hey guy who did the Network trailer, you know a good, general rule of thumb when your putting one of these together can be that the trailer should technically be shorter than the actual film.

What happened? Didn't feel like including the scene when William Holden tells his wife he's leaving her? Jeez, just about everything else made it. It's a wonder anyone went to see this thing at all!

A trailer should tease and leave an audience with questions about the film that they just have to have answered.

Take a look at how a trailer should be made...

Oh yeah...now thats a movie!

Music works, it's a perfect length, there's a scene in the film where Blythe Danner is in a glass cage. Zach Braff can't decide which almost indistinguishable hot chick to be with and apparently, after getting some sound advice from his dad, he stays outside a doorway all night. Man I am stoaked to see The Last Kiss!


Now that's more like it.
