[On a formatting note: I've tried to both embed the trailers (where possible) and link to the trailers someplace where I know they won't be pulled. If there's no embed, blame YouTube. Just click the link on the movie's title and you'll get it.]
4. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
The full-length trailer's good too, but this teaser was special, with the fake advertisement up front and the excellent and unconventional ELO song at the end, bridged by Tom Wilkinson's brilliantly deadpan performance ("I can assure you, it's not...").
Awesome trailer attributes: cool song/score; teaser; funny!; iconic performance
12. Hot Fuzz (2007)
Just brilliant parody from minute one. It packs a few laughs (that monkey joke surprises me every time) without giving away the farm, but most importantly tells you exactly the kind of movie to expect in two and a half minutes. Plus, Timothy Dalton cackling "Here come the fuzz.." delights me for somewhat unclear reasons.
Awesome trailer attributes: great tagline; funny!
