Studio Pushback Forces NATO To Rethink Shortened Trailers For Theaters

By | Wednesday May 29, 2013 @ 3:36pm PDT

The National Association of Theatre Owners met with resistance from some studios when it went to the majors with a controversial set of movie trailer guidelines last week. It wants studios to limit trailers to two minutes, down 30 seconds from the MPAA-set standard, and to only advertise films within a four-month pre-release window. NATO-repped theater owners want more control over the promos that run ahead of movies and argue that shorter trailers will make moviegoing more appealing to audiences. Exhibitors would then have extra promo time to use as they choose, whether that means squeezing in additional trailers, house ads, or other inventory. But some distribution pros tell me it’s purely a money-driven move designed to squeeze more revenue out of pre-roll programming they fear could hurt studio marketing efforts. Read More »

‘Dark Knight’ Was YouTube’s Most-Watched Movie Trailer In 2012

By | Wednesday December 19, 2012 @ 9:01pm PST

YouTube Launches 60 New ChannelsGoogle seems to have data for virtually everything. What’s interesting about its list of the hottest trailers from this year is that a video game — Activision’s Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 — walloped anything out of Hollywood, taking the top two spots and four places out of the top 10. Sony and MGM’s James Bond film Skyfall held two spots. One TV show made the list, NBC’s Revolution. YouTube bases its rankings on how many times a clip was viewed, how long people stayed with it, and how many people found the video by searching for it instead of clicking on an ad. YouTube will discuss its findings and show the top trailers here. Now, here’s the ranking for the top trailers on YouTube in 2012: Read More »
