More than one is fine

They don't have to be good movies, but when you saw
the trailer, it got you going.

And what points got you the goose bumps

Although the movie wasn't as good as hoped, the
trailer is one of the best ever made in my opinion

Star Trek 2009
official trailer


"He saved 800 lives"
"Enlist in Star Fleet"
The music
Kirk taking command
The music
"James T. Kirk was a great man"

Batman (1989)
I paid to see The Dead Pool just to see that advert. The ticket seller could not believe when i asked him to confirm/check that the advert was showing with the film.
'What, if not you aren't buying a ticket?'
'Nope'
'Wow' says the ticket seller.

Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace (1999)
First new Star Wars images in an age, and wow, were they amazing. Jedi leaping, incredible designs, perfect editing. So many emotions associated with this advert.
I remember sitting at my computer, with a crappy 56k modem, waiting for this 3 inch box to download so I could watch the advert. Took at least 20 minutes but through the process I kept watching and rewatching the portion that had downloaded thinking this was going to be so amazing when I get to see it large.

Yeah, let's leave it at that shall we?

CAPTAIN AMERICA - THE FIRST AVENGER

Granted, I had to squint to get past the changes to the uniform, but the extended trailer was magic. Of course, it left out all the stuff the movie got wrong!

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

After the disappointing V, this looked spectacular. Add to that the apparent death of Captain Kirk, and this had me eagerly awaiting the filmís release for months.

The original "Willard" (1971).  The movie itself sucked, but the trailer was inciting. Link below

Good stuff. I often find trailers more entertaining than
the movies themselves. It's an interesting media that is
kinda like the comic book cover. Can we get them to by
the comic if they see this cover?

Still the freakiest trailer I've ever seen in my life:


I was "only" 42 at the time... made the mistake of first seeing this on a Kindle, right before bed (didn't help that I watched it at least 5 or 6 more times in a row).  That very night, I had a jolted-me-awake nightmare that the Babadook was standing in the corner of my room.

Unnerved me for days afterwards!

The music in the STAR TREK (2009) trailer is Two Steps From Hell's "Freedom Fighters", and is one of the greatest pieces of trailer music I've ever heard. I think you could cut THE NAKED GUN to it and still get the same dramatic chills.

The first one I can remember was ALIEN. Those quick images and that music, a horror movie in space. Yeah I had to see it!

The latest was THOR : RAGNAROK. Zeppelin's Immigrant Song will do that though.

BATMAN (1989)

These days we take for granted superhero films, so much so that even some "fans" cry about " superhero fatigue." But when the 1989 BATMAN was first announced,  we comics fans had pretty much no other comic book characters on the big screen outside of the SUPERMAN films. And when that trailer was released,  and we could see this was not a campy version like the TV show of the 1960s, but a (more or less) straight take on Batman and the Joker, I was excited. 

Apparently, a lot of people were, since 1989 really was the summer of The Bat. It's easy now to forget, if you were around or old enough at the time, but Batman seemed to be everywhere that summer.

My choices echo James`

Batman 1989, the music, the costume, the car, and the
fact that it looked to be getting things right just
like the 1978 Superman.As Matt sad, that Bat-symbol
was everywhere, from bus shelters to t-shirts, i even
had it in the rear window of my car!

The Phantom Menace, same again, the music, Darth Maul
and the first `proper` Star Wars film since 1983.

Terminator 2, to see those Terminators rolling off the
production line, really ramped up the anticipation.

Batman Batman really was a hype machine. The bit that sticks in my memory was wondering why there were so many people @ Wimeldon warring Batman T-shirts. It all became apparent the following day when the people giving them out got ejected from the site. 

Viral marketing @ itís best

I thought Thor: Ragnarok was the best trailer I've seen in awhile. The way the visuals were synced up with music. I know I was pumped to see the movie more because of the trailer.

Before that, Godzilla was a great trailer, getting me pumped to see a creature I've seen dozens of times, yet felt new. Bryan Cranston's lines and the extended roar/sound effect ....pure awesome.

Last but not least - The Blair Witch Project.

I've probably watched the first 2:05 of this MAN OF STEEL trailer 20 times. It still works for me if I forget about the context of the movie as a whole.

Regarding The Phantom Menace, MTV had the Battle of the
Fates music video/trailer on heavy rotation, i kept MTV
on in the background just to see that clip as often as
possible.

The very first Batman Begins teaser sent chills down my spine. As it plays like a grown up horror movie, right up until the very last seconds of the trailer where you finally see a split second flash of Batman and then the insignia. Very clever way of saying that the film was going to be as far away from the Joel Schumacher nonsense as it could possibly be.

Also Batman Returns first trailer was a lot of fun too.

And as Bill said the Terminator 2 teaser was really great as well. Though all the T2 trailers were of a high standard Though I'll never quite forgive the second one for falsely promising an appearance by Kyle Reese. (Yes he is in the special edition dream sequence, but he was cut from the theatrical release back in the day..)

I have to echo those who've said Batman. That trailer in 1989 was incredibly exciting. It knocked my socks off.

Marvel's The Avengers

Mainly because it's the movie I'd been waiting 40 years for, and after the successful debuts of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America there was a lot of excitement about seeing them together in one movie.

For a movie? Probably the Phantom Menace teaser. 19 year old me really wanted that to be a good movie.

In general? The Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zw47_q9wbBE ). I probably watched that thing a hundred-plus times between January and March 2017.

Phantom Menace was the first trailer that I had on a PC (very compressed) and I must have watched it 20 times, not counting the times I saw it in the cinema.
