The trailer for Batman in 35mm (1989)

The one thing I hate about modern trailers is how they seem to give the entire movie away in about 2–3 minutes. I blame the likes of Netflix for this and while this style of condensed storytelling can help you dodge a bullet, it can often ruin a film you would have enjoyed had you not known the main plot features beforehand.

This Batman trailer, filmed in 35mm, is the anthesis of that, opting for short atmospheric scenes and great dialogue. It works in hindsight—I’ve watch this film like 100 times—but probably not for new viewers. That said, 35mm? More please.
