There have been some awesome movie trailers this year, plus the usual load of trash. But the teasers that tipped over the edge into classy territory? Well, only a few managed to be a cut above the rest. And while they were all well and great, only one of those really deserves the honour of Best Trailer of 2010.
There are other video efforts worth saluting. But none of them even come close to Quentin Dupieux's inflatable psychic killing machine (thanks to Twitchfilm for the rubber-tastic image). Still, if you like your movies non-road safe and free of exploding birds, Read on for the other top trailers of 2010.
The Social Network - Creep Trailer
David Fincher rules. So does pretty much everyone else who was involved in The Social Network. But Radiohead? They rule even more. So it takes a hell of a lot to cover Creep and come out on top of the original song. Combine that with a bold use of text conversation and you got yourself an excellent little trailer. Shame the film was so crap. (Ok, it's incredible - made you look.)
Scott Pilgrim vs the World - Osymyso, "Prepare"
The normal trailers were enough to make you drool like a dog on crack, but Osymyso's first remix had the bonus of getting Chris Evans' sexy voice stuck in your head for hours on end...
True Grit - Trailer 2
Johnny Cash. Coen Brothers. Jeff Bridges. Nuff said.
Inception - Theatrical Trailer
After the months of teasers, speculation, and people shouting "BRRRRMMMM!" in your face, this trailer finally gave everyone a clue of what they could expect from the year's greatest film. Even better than that, the Inception trailer was as ripe for repeated viewings as the film itself. Any poor fool trying to avoid any spoilers of the plot missed out on a seriously brilliant two minutes and twenty-four seconds. They really should learn to dream a little bigger, darling.
