Where are my "trailers" then?
Now this may not be a big issue with many of you, but I'm getting sick of certain DVD releases NOT including the TRAILER.  I've always loved seeing them, and surely they are the easiest of extras to source and provide for us.  Only just got round to getting Speilberg's WAR OF THE WORLDS (R2 2-disc special edition)...I wasn't in a hurry as I was sorely disappointed...but I picked it up for £4!  Anyway, I was wanting to refamiliarise myself with the promising teaser and theatrical trailers that came out at the time...but they were a no show.  Am I the only one that feels shortchanged when this happens?

No, you're not alone. This is something that annoys me as well. I want my trailers! I hate it when they don't put them on the DVD.

It's a hassle when you want to give your friends an idea of what the movie you are about to show them is about and there's no darn trailer.
Mind you, not all trailers are good...

I agree it is really irritating! It is happening more and more! No trailer on Children of Men! In fact Universal seem to be releasing new titles like Inside Man with no special features at all on R2 these days and they do not have something like the Legacy Series either on R2! Double Indemnity was released here this year as a vanilla! It is all wrong! Buying R1 is a complete no brainer!

The actual quality of various films aside..."big" region 2 examples such as the 2-disc "special editions" of HULK or SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW didn't contain it's TRAILERS in ANY region according to the excellent site
Moreover, the HULK dvd DID contain the trailer for the stinking THUNDERBIRDS debacle instead...  And BARE BONES discs such as the excellent ROCKETEER on R2 didn't even give us a trailer!  Ah well, I'll just have to settle for catching TRAILERS on the likes of etc. I guess...  Sad

Yes! I find it very strange that almost all DVD's have trailers of upcoming cinema and dvd releases BUT NO trailer for the feature film you're about to see. This used to be standard. Where has it? And I remember DVD's that had not one, but a few - Theatrical, Teaser, TV, etc.
