    EMPIRE mag's '50 Greatest Movie Trailers of All Time'!

    Weeks ago, I promised to post this (someone had asked about it in another thread) but I couldn't find the issue it was in! Finally tracked it down - 18 months old (from August 2003), but still interesting. I think I've seen about 40 of the ones they choose...

    EMPIRE's 50 Greatest Movie Trailers of All Time
    50. Eight Legged Freaks (2002)
    49. Star Wars Episode II (2002)

    46. The Ghost Breakers (1940)
    45. Ocean's Eleven (2001)
    44. Men in Black (1997)

    7. The Matrix (1999)

    4. Monsters Inc. 'Harry Potter' trailer (2001)
    3. Comedian (2002)
    2. Independence Day teaser (1996)
    1. Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace teaser (1999)

    I can't believe there's no more Hitchcock in there, or Dr Strangelove, or (given they like their parodies), the Chicken Run teaser... but there you have it. Let the argument (sorry, discussion) commence...

    Cool list. Was this UK or Australian Empire?

    It's just if it was Aussie, I will have to track it down out of storage.

    Its the UK one I'm afraid. I know because I am a subscriber of it.

    I disagree with TPM being number one though I do admit the trailer was very exciting when it came out.

    Very surprising to find the trailer on this list, while the teaser for this movie was even better.

    I agree.. I agree that the teaser was better than the movie.

    Have to go with Pearl Harbor. The music/score is really haunting. There's one good extended trailer and the rest are just OK.

    I absolutely adore the Comedian trailer. It's in it's own category.

    Where's the Hulk International trailer in this list? That is the coolest trailer ever made. It made that movie look like endless awesome action and was perfectly cut to the great trailer score.
