We want to create awards here at Gold Derby just for movie trailers. Let’s start by naming the best of 2015. Which ones do you think we should include among the nominees? Which ones were the BEST?January 4, 2016 at 6:05 pm #206371
The Force Awakens – Got the film over 700 million already
The Visit – Everyone was creeped out and laughing at “will you get inside my oven to clean it”
Jurassic World – beautiful trailer, haunting, and great marketing
The Good Dinosaur – just stunning and emotional from start to finish
Furious 7 – just… Paul Walker
The Revenant – captures how it wants to excite and emote the audience and doesn’t disappoint
Suffragette – emotional and made us think a better film was in thereJanuary 4, 2016 at 6:11 pm #206372
Carol. The trailor is so touchingJanuary 4, 2016 at 6:43 pm #206373
The Mission Impossible Rogue Nation trailer with fast edits and growing intensity leading to that plane stunt was thrilling. I was at the movie at the first screening.January 4, 2016 at 6:56 pm #206374
1. The Revenant. I felt more emotion in that trailer than while watching half the films I saw this year. Still haven’t seen the movie, but if the trailer itself left me that awestruck than I am extremely excited.
2. Steve Jobs. Way back when the trailer was first released, I immediately began predicting this year’s Oscars (this was before the center was even open), and based on the perfection of this trailer alone, I predicted Steve Jobs to win best picture. The trailer was absolutely riveting.
3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens. No explanation necessary.
4. Mad Max: Fury Road. It was either the first or second trailer released, I don’t remember. But whichever one it was, it made me believe that I could love an action blockbuster in a franchise that I had never seen before. And, well, I did love it.
5. Carol. Although it made me falsely believe that I could connect with the characters, it did rightfully show the beauty and masterful handling of the story.
Bridge of Spies, Joy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Martian
And if we’re allowed to include 2016 films that had trailers released this year, then Batman vs. Superman’s comic con trailer easily takes the cake.January 4, 2016 at 7:02 pm #206375

- Mad Max Fury Road
- Star Wars TFA
- The Revenant
- The Martian
- Avengers Age of Ultron
- Ant Man
- Bridge of Spies
The Hateful Eight had one of the best trailers of the year!January 4, 2016 at 7:19 pm #206377
In no particular order:
1. Suffragette – really heartbreaking trailer that didn’t give much of the story away expertly captured the hardships of the characters in that time period. I could almost forgive the over-advertising of Meryl Streep’s role in the movie itself
2. The Danish Girl – who didn’t sniffle after this?
3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens – NO DUH
4. The Revenant – again, not giving much away while still leaving the audience wanting more (the best type of trailer)
5. The Good Dinosaur – just a beautiful-looking trailer with a masterpiece of a landscape. Too bad the movie wasn’t as good enough as the trailer made you think it would be
Joy – learned absolutely nothing about the trailer and didn’t give me any expectations
Inside Out – beautiful trailer and fantastic movie but it was just everywhere and was starting to wear me outJanuary 4, 2016 at 9:05 pm #206379
Carol’s trailer was amazing,
The comic con trailer of Batman V Superman was really good, but the one they just released really made me less excited for the film
Oh and Star Wars obviously
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.January 6, 2016 at 3:49 am #206380
Carol – the trains, the score, Blanchetts voice over. Just beautiful.
The Danish Girl – the trailer is visually stunning, and wowed me when I first saw it.
Beasts of No Nation – the stunning cinematography takes front and centre stage. Gives away very little, teases so much. Exactly what a trailer should do.January 6, 2016 at 6:48 pm #206381
There were a lot of great trailers this year. I’d separate them by comedy and drama, though:
Best Trailer for a Drama:
1. The Danish Girl
4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
5. Mad Max: Fury Road
Best Trailer for a Comedy:
2. Danny Collins
3. Inside Out
4. Daddy’s Home
5. The Lady in the Van
