You could argue that modern trailers are full of bombast and gaudy special effects and give too much of the plot away, but let’s get real – any teaser for any film these days makes older trailers look like garbage, and that’s that.
And if you needed any proof just check out this remixed trailer for 1999’s The Matrix, which makes the film look almost epic and exciting enough for us to forget the sweaty rave horror of its sequels.
Now, compare that to the far clunkier real trailer from the 90s.
See? Progress works. Just wait ‘til you see the digitally remastered spoon.
