Movie trailers, sometimes called film previews, are advertisements for movies coming soon. They consist of a number of shots from the video being advertised. Video trailers commonly tell the story of the film in such a manner that arouses maximum appeal. Film previews are commonly shown on the cinema screens where the video film will be exhibited. Besides, film trailers have become popular on the Internet. Nowadays you have a chance to watch trailers to a wide variety of videos, even very old ones. The origination of the term “trailer” is explained by the fact that such video trailers have initially been shown at the end of a video film in the cinema. The practice later proved that showing previews after the video films was not as profitable as it supposed to be. The majority of people prefer to leave the cinema right after the video. That's why at present time it is something common that trailers are shown prior to the beginning of the video film. Such a trick ensures that the previews will be viewed by the audience, and, if a trailer is fascinating, the opportunities that the majority of people watching the preview will come to see the movie are much higher. Although the trailers are no more shown after the video, the name has stuck. Film trailers play an important role in the modern film industry. First of all, they are made for the sake of the movie producer as a means to draw the public to the video. A series of selected shots making up a movie preview are as a rule derived from the most exciting, humorous or other noteworthy parts of the film, generally without showing the end of the video film. In this way the audience gets a notion about the genre of the video film and the principal plotline, but the interest in the movie is not suppressed. Quite the contrary, after the trailer people are commonly intrigued and tend to find the video film worthy of watching. Apart from being beneficial to the movie producers, video film trailers help people to choose what seance in the cinema to visit. Spending just a couple of minutes on watching the trailer will give you total comprehension of what the movie is like. In this way you get an opportunity to view just those movies that will definitely be interesting to you without spending time on viewing the entire video films that do not suit your taste.
