Movie PreviewsHey, I personally enjoy all the movie trailers that show before the beginning of a feature film. I mean, how else am I going to know what is going to be coming out in the Summer of 2009? However, not everyone shares my sentiments. In fact, one Connecticut State Representative Andrew Fleischmann hates them so much that he is trying to get legislation passed that would force theaters to print the start time of the actual movie which patrons are there to see in addition to the start time of the trailers. This would give viewers the choice of arriving to see the previews, or for just the feature. According to the Cinema Advertising Council, an industry group, on-screen revenue for its members grew 45 percent from $190.8 million in 2002 to $315 million in 2003.

whoo hoo, less trailers PLEASE. I also hate how there are now a giant series of advertisements BEFORE the trailers, which tacks on another 5 minutes or so. I would hope the fact that we’re paying 5-10 dollars on a movie that we could see something ad-free.

I hate the commercials that come before the movie, but I love the trailers. I wish they could just eliminate the ads, maybe an ad-ware removal tool? tongue wink

I actually like having trailers before a movie. Give me enuff time to buy a drink and popcorn. raspberry
