2010 Movie Project: May Trailers

So May has come to an end and while I was crunching the trailer data and I noticed something odd, I saw a several movies this month that had zero trailers. I got to thinking about it and I can’t figure out why the theater or the studio for that matter didn’t throw a trailer or two on there. Doesn’t it make sense that in a time when box office sales are down that you would take every opportunity to make audiences aware of your movie(s) that you can? I mean, there I was watching the Iron Man 2 sneak preview, probably one of the bigger movies of the summer and the lights go down, and boom… the movie starts. No Trailers. Come on! Sold out theater, and you show nothing… you have nothing of interest for a theater full of eager movie goers?! Psssht, not cool.

So here is the rundown on the month.

Full list of trailers:



Casino Jack and the United States of Money


Eat Pray Love

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade*

Just Wright

The Karate Kid


Letters to Juliet



Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Purple Rain*

Robin Hood

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Sex and the City 2

Shrek Foever After

The A-Team

The Breakfast Club*

The Kids Are All Right

The Last Airbender

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

TRON: Legacy

Uncle Buck*

* Caught these classics on a couple retro movie screenings.

New question this month… What do you think is the worst looking movie you’ve seen this month?

    if you mean the worst looking trailer, probably (i hate to say it) charlie st. cloud (even though i love me some zac efron) or the new katharine heigl vehicle where she plays–what else–a successful single career gal without a man (gasp!). it’s the one where she falls in love with Fergie’s husband in real life because their friends die and leave them in charge of a baby? i really should just google that, but i don’t want to give their page any more hits than it already has.

      We’ll prolly end up seeing Charlie St Cloud on account of the dreamy Zac Efron… but I know what you mean!

      I havent seen a trailer for Life as We Know It
      (thank you IMDB) yet, but your description made me sigh and slap my forehead. 🙂
