As a huge movie fan today there are only a couple things that irritate me when I go to the theater. One is how many previews or trailers show too much of the story. Actually, that might be one my least favorite things in the entire world.
Once in awhile, however, there is a brilliant preview that draws you in just enough to make you want to see the movie without telling you the whole story. This weekend when I saw Water for Elephants, I was pleasantly surprised to watch the preview for Anonymous. A story about Shakespeare but with a twist.
This preview does what it is supposed to do – it shows us the basis of the story with a few short pieces of dialouge. Then it plays one of my favorite songs by Radiohead, and while the song plays it teases us with small glimpses of the film without much dialouge. Visually it is stunning and shows just enough to make me put that one on the list to see. Well done!
Check out the preview below.
