The Evolution of the Movie Trailer

What's the best way to promote a film? Show a small portion of it to movie fans! And where are those movie fans? In the theaters! That's how trailers got started.

Granger Willson of Vulture takes us on a historical ride through how movie trailers have changed from the beginning of theater runs 100 year ago to today. (via Laughing Squid)
