As time-sucks go, this list of The 50 Greatest Movie Trailers of All Time is formidable, even potentially lethal. Aside from Where The Wild Things Are, I can’t disagree with any of the choices. In fact, the trailers for Independence Day, The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield are textbook examples of trailers that create movies in the imagination that far exceed the actual films themselves. And am I the only one who thinks the trailer for Alien has a certain David Lynch quality? Right up to the moment the egg cracks open, the trailer looks like an outtake from Eraserhead.
