Sometimes badass trailers blow the whole story, or reveal almost every "money shot" in the entire movie in order to pull in the big business. It is definitely not a truism that amazing trailers yield an amazing movie once everything is said and done; still, you have to give the studios and trailer editors credit for putting the best face on a looming turd.
So, as the inaugural post in this section, I present two sides of the trailer coin: LOTR: The Return of the King, and Transformers 2. With these two movies, I will place a POTENTIAL score (out of 5) which basically grades the trailer on effectiveness, and then a REALITY score that grades how the movie actually turned out.
Without further ado:
LOTR: Return of the King
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Look out for more classic trailers, and some more in-depth reviews in the coming weeks!
