I absolutely adore movie trailers. I could watch them all day long and feel very inspired. However, most of the time I find that they are far more impacting than the actual movie, which is quite disappointing.
In the book Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald, he made a comment that struck me. When two of the characters kissed for the first time, it was the most passionate, exciting kiss they ever shared. However, it was not because of their great love for each other. It wasn’t even because it was the first time. It was amazing because they knew nothing about each other, and they were projecting on one another what they imagined was the perfect person.
It was at this point that I realized watching a movie trailer is the exact same as being seduced by someone on a first date.
