It’s been a week and a half since Lucasfilm released the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and it really got me thinking about some of the other truly fantastic movie teasers from over the years. To me, a great teaser should really do just that… tease you like no tomorrow and leave you wanting more. Kinda like this girl I knew back in my younger years… but I digress. Whether it is a scene filmed just to wet your appetites, actual footage from the film or a sequence of images shown quickly on the screen, if it does a good job, I can guarantee your ass will be in that seat on opening day.
Here’s some of the best teaser trailers from over the years.
70. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
This should have been the greatest thing EVER for superheroes.
69. A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
Too much Speilberg, not enough Kubrick. Never would I have thought that was a bad thing.
68. Deadpool 2 (2018)
Pure comedy gold.
67. Logan (2017)
A great closer for Jackman, who absolutely owns this role.
66. A Quiet Place (2018)
65. The Matrix: Revolutions (2003)
I really wish this trilogy delivered.
64. The Matrix: Reloaded (2003)
The hype for this sequel was huge.
63. The Matrix (1999)
www.whatisthematrix.com Not quite the site it used to be.
62. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
What a bunch of A-holes.
61. Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
A movie I never thought needed a sequel, that I now wish would get another sequel.
