Difference between trailers and films

May 20th, 2011 by Emma Hosford · No Comments · Uncategorized

For the Dvd commentary project, my group did Shutter Island. One of the most interesting things i encountered in my research was the huge difference between the feeling of the trailer and the film itself. The trailer is marketed it as more of a horror film, but really, there are very few aspects of the horror genera in the film. It can sometimes seem as if trailers are, in and of themselves, mini movies. It is interesting to think about the goals of these mini films. They are there as marketing tools, but sometimes don’t remain true at all the the film even though they are made of its parts.
