[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.]
2. Children of Men (2006)
Quick check...yep, still makes me cry. Even divorcing myself from how much I loved the film itself, I have to rave about the construction of the trailer. The premise is laid out immediately and simply, the chaos depicted, the hopelessness ... and then out of the chaos comes the girl. The music is stellar not once (the orchestral version of "Gimmie Shelter") but twice (the Sigur Ros song). ...Sorry, I just watched it again and got goosebumps. Just amazing.
Awesome trailer attributes: cool song/score
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
