well,i do before every movie just to get an idea of what kind of movie it is.some movies have good trailors but it isn't a good movie overall.they just show the part of the movie which is good. so do you watch movie trailer before its release??

sometimes.But most of the time movie trailers are very very misleading.Like if you saw 'I AM LEGEND' trailer you would think the whole movie is filled with action.But only 30 minutes of the movie lived up to the excitation of the trailer.Also in the new movie 'HANCOCK' you never see any of the emotional stuff that exists between hancock and his wife.That stuff takes up nearly the entire second half of the movie.

Yes I do actually. Before watching a movie I usually search for the trailer on youtube or on the movie homepage, just to get a better idea what the movie is all about. Though there are some trailers which reflect the movie better than it actually is, so sometimes it can cause some dissapointment I think.

trailers usually focus on the good aspects of the movie i.e. a movie can be 2 hours crap 5 mins good and the trailor will focus on the 5 mins lol so no i dont

Yup, i will watch movie trailers b4 the actual release of the movie, but however, it wun be the deciding factor for me to watch the whole movie.. As trailer will only show all the ncie and exciting parts of the moive, and so if the movie is only that nice with the trailer showing everything, i guess i need not waste the money to watch the actual release.. haha

Yes in a overzealous way. I can't get enough of trailers. I check apple.com/movietrailers at least on a weekly basis. I love seeing what movies are due out. then I check rottentomatoes.com to see what reviews the movie has gottne before it comes out plus they are pretty good at finding release dates.

yes i always because atleast i get a feel how the movie willbe. And bollywood moives also show sound clipping, If the song is good then i will go and watch other wise i will not go. The movie also depends on the song, if the lyric and the music is good then the may be good. if not dont waste the money in buying the ticket. enjoy :)

I have seen some trailers that are intriguing and peaked my interest in a movie that was fabulous and worthwile. Unfortunately, over the recent years, I have found that the clips in the trailer have been the only worthwile portion of some movies. That is disappointing, however, without the trailer, I probably wouldn't have seen some of the greatest movies made over the years. That makes me a movie trailer addict of sorts. I never see a movie without viewing the trailer.

Yeah, I usually do like to watch trailers before seeing the actual movie. Sometimes there are good trailers for good movies, but other times it makes me really sad when there are trailers for movies that are supposed to be comedies but then all the funny parts in the movie were already stuffed into the trailer.

I do sometimes watch the trailer and when the movie doesn't live up to it i am disappointed.

Not really - I very rarely see movies at all, so I'm not interested in the trailers. I go to the movies about once a year, and don't watch them at home on TV because I usually end up falling asleep!

I have several times, but as a general rule I do not. It confuses me and I think sometimes that I have seen the movie because of watching them. You see I have seizers and my short term and long term memory are affectd by them. So it's best that I don't watch them so I'll get the full movie and watch.

Yeah I watch the trailers. I think its better to see them at the cinema because they are on longer so you can get more of an idea of what the film is about. But I agree, sometimes the adverts make the film look brilliant and when you watch it, its actually a bit borning!
