Looking forward to the inevitable Nightmare on Predator Street crossover.

The cast makes it look like an SNL comedy parody or something.

Casting, script, trailers, early screenings and re shoots all point to a car crash of a film. So sad as a direct sequel to predator 2 with Arnie teaming up with the survivors to hunt down a new predator would be amazing. Even a sequel to predators would be good.

Saw this trailer today on YouTube. Such a contrast to modern trailers. No big moments spoiled, no shots of raptors or T Rex. If it was made today they'd show the T Rex chase, raptors vs T Rex and probably close the trailer with "clever girl" and the death of a character.

The new Halloween looks ok but personally I think Halloween should have been left after Donald Pleasence died (probably spelled that wrong but I mean the guy who played the Doc).

I think trailers often give away too much heck I often find them just plain to long, just start getting me excited then finish so I need to see more, don't over stay your welcome.

I edited the trailer to Halloween 5 because I felt it was too long and showed to much, I wanted something shorter and less spoilery.

You barely even see a dinosaur in it. It definitely explains why the moment you 1st see the dinosaurs along with Laura Deen is so impactful. I remember being absolutely blown away by how cool it all looked at the time. It still holds up as well, 20 odd years later.

How weird, I watched that JP trailer yesterday. I love how they never properly show the dinosaurs.

However, a lot of older trailers show pretty much everything and are about 4 minutes long. The best thing about those trailers is the voice overs though. I rather miss that.

4 minutes in my opinion is well too long for a trailer, I prefer like 1.30 with 10 seconds of that being from the maker of type stuff at the start them some music and info at the end etc.. so more like 1.10 or so of footage.

You have no idea who the villain is from that Jurassic Park trailer.


I love the original Star Wars trailer. Absolutely nothing given away. You don't even see the Death Star. Also fun to think that anyone watching it back in 1976/77 would have no idea what the film was going to mean in the long run. You see a Star Wars trailer now and the next two films have already been announced. That one was just a trailer for another space film.

Trailers in the 80's and 90's were good as others have said never gave to much away or showed key parts in the film and never gave the story away. 2 mins is the perfect trailer length anything longer spoils it.

Another really good early film trailer with a great voice over again it does not give much away

I always find those 80's trailers nostalgic as I've seen some of them hundreds of times as they were on the VHS of films. I'm pretty sure that Willow and Short Circuit were on Ghostbusters.

Not sure what Jurassic Park trailer you guys have watched but the one you've linked definitely shows raptors and spoils the "as long as they can't open doors" scene :lol:

How to make a trailer which doesn't spoil the film and gets people interested.

Why is there a Dumbo live-action film by Tim Burton being made?

I like some of Timmy's older films, but I don't think I've enjoyed anything of his in a long time, bar Coraline.

He didn't do coralline. They guy who directed nightmare before Christmas did, but that person wasn't Tim Burton but Henry Selick.

Two reasons.

1. $$$$$$$

2. Disney copyrights will expire in the next few decades (I think the US gives 95 years). By remaking them they get to keep a version of their work under their control.

That must be why they're not fighting to meddle with copyright law. That and the inevitable backlash from today's public.

Easier to spin a few live action flicks out and make megabucks instead.
