Movie trailers have become world wide source of entertainment and a good conversation start with people who love movies, I enjoy them myself but lately i have been avoiding trailers due to my realization of a few key things we all know trailers have a job to get its to put asses in seats on opening day which isn’t a bad thing my problem is about the trailers themselves before I get to that I would like to give you a very Brief History lesson.

History: the first movie theater opened up in 1910 three years later in 1913 a man In New York City, Nils, Granlund, advertising manager of Marcus Loew theaters, made a short little promotional film for the Broadway play “Pleasure Seekers” showcasing actual rehearsal footage. The idea of showing ads between films was a hit. At the same time In Chicago a man named Col. William Selig, one of film’s earliest pioneers, would engineer another way to get audiences to the movies. Selig noticed the popularity of print serials in newspapers so he approached the Chicago Tribune, a newspaper embattled in a circulation ward for who could be the most sensationalist, to adapt a film version of a print serial. The result was a 13 episode serial entitled “The Adventures of Kathlyn” It is very interesting and amazing to know that the first two trailers ever were not even for movie however they help pave the way to get the movie trailers that we are enjoy know and love today. one more little piece of information in 1916 Movie studios started to take over promotions and filming for trailers before that they were all done by the movie theaters themselves, A lot of film historians and expert still debate about which year the first trailer was introduced 1913 or 1916.

Are Trailers to long?:

What is the average standard movie trailer s ? its about 2 minutes and 30 seconds now a days most movie trailers last about 3 to 4 minutes Long I think that its way too long and I really wish that the movie studios would consider lowering the time for a trailer to no Longer than 1 minute and 30 seconds I have a few reasons why they should do this, having a long trailer will decrease the excitement and anticipation for the product that studios are trying to get people to watch. remember some times less is more you can still achieve the same level of excitement for a movie by making the trailers 1:30 try it out for a while and ask around see how it works. I do know that their are a few groups out their trying to change it so that Movie trailers are shorter I just don’t know how short they want it and their names,

Misleading Trailers:

This is an one thing I have a huge problem with Movie trailers that are misleading like Drive the trailer makes it seem as if it was some kind of action movie when it really wasn’t I am one of those people that if i am lied to by the trailer and see the movie I ask for my money back the studios need to pay more attention to this, if they keep doing this then other people will start asking for their money back too , misleading trailers really makes me angry,

Trailers give out too much info:

My other problem which is a huge down side in watching trailers other than being way to long is that they divulge way too much information of the movie there has been many movies that has left audiences extremely disappointed because most of the plot have been shown in the trailer which made me not like the movie cuz i already knew what was coming and if you do not believe me please read my list of a few movies watch the trailers then what the movie and let me know what you though if the trailer gave out way too much of the plot or have mess up a very important part of the movie.

1. Iron Man 3 , 2. Terminator Salvation, 3. Carrie, 4.Lord of the Rings the two Towers , 5. Funny people

6.Kick Ass 2 , 7. Dusk til Dawn, 8.The Island , 9. Pacific Rim 10, Amazing Spider-man 2

These are just a few examples their are an other 5,000 or more other movies way too many to list, but for Seasoned movie goers having a long trailer with so much of the plot can really damage the opinion of people seeing the movie plus it can and will detour them from seeing the movie all together.

Teasers or trails of trailers:

Recently studios have been making teaser trailers or some would call trailers for trailers which is very stupid and a complete waste of time and money to make a trailer for 30 seconds? so if any movie people are reading this just make a full trailer and don’t deal with all this other B.S it would make all our lives a lot better,

Trailer Splicing:

Let’s play a little game I’m going to take a trailer for a movie in show it in its entirety then I’m going to edit and show the shorter version of the trailer to see if this still gets the same reaction from people and the people was still go to see the movie based on the shorter trailer.please forgive me for any mistakes its my first time editing a video.

Avengers 2 Age: Of Ultron. Normal:

Avengers 2 age of Ultron Short:

So what do you think? I purposely left out the scenes with the Hulk Busters cuz I felt like they should have left that as a surprise for fans, & I really wanted to use the song Fight has one by Bad City they did the Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes theme but I didn’t know how to add it in, and if any one from Marvel is reading this use that song in Avengers 3 or 4. So people what did you think of the short version did it give away too much or did it make you want or not want to see the Movie?

Cheerios Controversial Commercial

Cheerios a National band name Cereal that most of us have grown up eating and enjoying for a long time have been receiving a lot of negative, hateful and Unnecessary back lash over their latest t.v ad
The Commercial is about a little biracial mixed girl talking to her White Mom about if it’s true that cheerios is good for your heart after her mom tells her yes the little girls puts Cheerios all over her Black fathers heart which is something that is meant to be cute however people lost their minds over this very innocent ad and flooded the Cheerios you tube Channel with thousand negative and hateful comment it got so bad that they had to disabled the comment section of the you tube video, According to AdWeek, the comments devolved into references to Nazis, “troglodytes” and “racial genocide” I have no idea how they got such messages from this Ad but it proves that people only see and hear what they want to or they are using this to get out all their negativity online cuz they think their is no way to track them.

In a age where we have a Black president and Same sex marriage why we still have a lot of racism and hate there are plenty of other things that need our attention, helping the poor, animal cruelty, Child abuse, helping the Sick n Elderly Not attacking a company and people who live like this for an innocent commercial that was telling people how much times have change, {Although having the brother sleeping on the coach during the middle of the day didn’t help them lol that my personal thoughts},

General Mils stated that they are happy with their Commercial and they refuse to pull it down and all the raciest have to deal with it, personally I am happy they are sticking up for themselves and even though they have so many malicious words for them they also have a lot of supporters n people backing them up,

Questions?
I would like to know how and why these people feel this hate for this ad?
How do you feel about this?

for those of you who might have not seen it I will happily post the link so you will be able to see for yourself.
