'Coming soon' - or already here? (the sequel)

Just remembered a couple more of my favourite trailers so thought I would throw them into the mix....

The Life Of David Gale turned out to be a pretty bad film, but the trailer was really exciting. I guess the issue with a lot of good trailers that turn into bad movies is that in a trailer you just have to show us moments of excitement and tension, with no responsibility to explain the set-ups, etc. When viewing the finished movie, sometimes these same moments can be exposed as contrived, unjustified or unrealistic.

I thought 8 Mile was actually a good movie - although still not as good as the trailer!
