Ep 191 | Movie Trailer Lies!

Why do movie trailers lie to us?

We recently discussed marketing in today’s films. As that was a very wide-ranging conversation, one of our listeners – John – asked us to elaborate on movie trailers themselves. Specifically, those trailers that painted an awful film as brilliance or made a great film look like hot, sticky garbage. As we discuss movie trailers and the lies they tell, we also focus on those trailers that duped us personally. Join in on the discussion and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.
