Not only are movie trailers great for checking out the feel of a movie before you commit, but many trailers have also become events on their own. The following websites let you watch movie trailers for all kinds of movies, for free.
Trailer Addict: Best for Everyone
Traileraddict hosts movie trailers for upcoming, newly-released, and older movies. The navigation banner at the top of their page lets you view trailers by top films, coming soon, and out now. You can also click the “Trailers” link to see a chronological list of trailers or the “Categories” link to browse trailers by a substantial collection of categories. You can also search for any movie by title or keywords.
In addition to the size of their trailer collection, the interesting thing about Traileraddict is that apart from the main trailer, each movie’s page also provides links to additional trailers and TV spots, as well as additional information about the movie. You can read a plot summary, fun facts about the movie, see some screenshots, and find information about the cast and crew.
iTunes Movie Trailers: Great for a Quick Overview of New Releases
Not many people know that Apple hosts a ton of movie trailers on their website. On the Apple Trailers page, you’ll find trailers for upcoming and newly released movies. If you want more, you can search for trailers using movie names, names of the cast, and even the director. Clicking a trailer link takes you a dedicated page for the trailer where you’ll see all the trailers listed for the movie. You can click on any of them to start playing the trailer. The player doesn’t offer many options; you can only adjust the volume, change the quality, or go fullscreen.
It’s a great place for quickly finding trailers for new and relatively recent movies (the last four years or so, at least for bigger titles), but you won’t find trailers for older or some lesser-known movies there.
