Movie trailers are easily the most effective medium that studios use to promote their films. They are short, and get the message to the audiences quickly. A really well put together trailer can actually do wonders in terms of giving the film a really smashing opening. Having said that, trailers can often be also very misleading. After all, the intention behind the trailers is to piqué the curiosity and interest level of audiences. And more often than not, the actual film never lives up to the heightened expectations that trailers create. On the other hand, there are also times when trailers disappoint, but the film doesn’t. But that’s very rare.
Today’s list is not about whether trailers represent the film in the best way possible; it’s about the trailers that on its own — irrespective of how the film turned out to be — are hugely entertaining and gets your anderaline pumping. I remember how excited I was after watching each of these trailers. Not every trailer on this list turned out to be a great film. But then, who cares.

For obvious reasons. With advancement of technology and marketing techniques, distributors have gotten clever with how best to sell the product they have at hand. They know what buttons of audiences to push. With that said, here is the list of top movie trailers ever made. You can watch all of these best movie trailers on YouTube.
