Just like with Christmas, sometimes the anticipation leading up to see new movies is almost as exciting as the real thing. Movie studios know this, which is why they love getting us hyped up with new movie trailers months before the films themselves are scheduled to be released.
Despite 2016 getting a reputation for being a not-so-great year, it’s been a fantastic year for movie trailers. Sure, some of them give away too much of the plot, but mostly trailers have gotten to be like mini-movies in their own right.
