      Whenever I’m trying to find something to watch with my mum and there’s a trailer that reveals everything about the movie, we just look at each other and say ‘well we’ve seen it now’ and look for something else. Thanks McDonald’s.

        What we want: Suicide Squad 2 with the same main characters

        What they gave us: Birds of Prey with only the same Harley Quinn

          I notice the dialogue , if its bad than the movie might be bad since trailers are a colección of many scenes with dialogue

              giving away major plot points is a sign that there's nothing else to offer

                I hate being in the cinema and wanting to watch every movie because the trailers are so aesthetic

                  Was Midsommar, A Star is Born, or Halloween considered an awful movie?

                    So Onward is going to suck. Since they gave out their entire plot with the newest trailer.

                      Does a youtube video not make money if it's below 10 mins? Gawd, that intro was neverending

                        You're right, this video was terrible. Like most of the clip you showed was from good movies, not bad ones

                                Simple TRUE REASON a youtube video is bad - it makes hasty generalizations (almost all on your list) - which is a logical fallacy and no way to base a criteria whether a movie will be good or bad.

                                    Some of the movies you have on this background feed are Oscar winners with huge critics and audience scores that are actually good but yea I agree with most of this.

                                                OK, some good points. BUT I bet if we were all to go back and watch trailers to our favorite movies, most would have at least a couple of these infractions. I think the bigger problem is that the trailer making industry just follows popular formulas. Yes they try to make bad movies seem good, but in the same ways they try to make good movies look good.

                                                    Producers often do lots more than just the budget, they can be involved creatively and have a massive impact. Just look at ‘The nightmare before Christmas’ it’s got Tim Burton written all over it but he only produced. So maybe do your research before spouting shit.

Kinda like the annoying guy who makes at least one crude Mother/Sex joke that's really dumb and tries to be as lewd and sexual as possible? hmm, I wonder if this WhatCulture channel on YouTube is worth my limited time on this planet.

It's a shame really, as it looks like "Gemini Man" could be quite fun... If I didn't know the entire plot.

                                                                                    I loved the Dunkirk trailers I saw when the film was approaching release. They gave you a 10 second (if that) snippet of a plane flying or a bomb dropping on sand. They then gave the title of the film. One, they didn't give anything about the plot away besides the basic setting. Two, they trusted audiences to know enough about the historical event to add in whatever else we needed to know rather than spoon feeding it to us like most war film trailers do.
