How to watch movie trailers?

Hmmm, now that’s a dilemma – how to watch a movie trailer? My solution – don’t. On the positive side, what you’ll get is, at most:
– Understanding the subject of the movie;
– Seeing some special effects;
– Getting an idea on what the most intense emotions in the movie are (if there’s laughter, you’ll probably be amused by the trailer; if it’s action, you’ll see some action).

On the other hand, on the negative side, what you’ll lose is actually the very first thing you win:
– Understanding the subject of the movie.

I don’t want to know what the movie is about. Let me be surprised. Let me discover the movie. Sorry, no movie trailers fan in here.

Coming back to the question in the title: “How to watch movie trailers?” Well, don’t. At all.
