Movie trailers rock. Period. If you’ve ever wanted to find out how to make a blockbuster movie trailer, then this instructional video delivers. And the good thing is, you don’t even need the visuals from a movie to make one!

If you’re a film fan you’ve no doubt watched numerous trailers for Hollywood blockbusters. And, these days, they often feel pretty damn formulaic. Because they pretty much all seem to repeat a familar and yawn-worthy pattern. Still, because of that they’re easy to replicate. In fact anyone, it seems, can make one. Or that’s what appears possible after you watch this parody video from the Auralnauts titled ‘How To Make A Blockbuster Movie Trailer.’

The video features no visuals relating to any movies, but instead gives us some text-based instructions on what needs to be placed on the screen, and what needs to be heard, to create that ideal tease.

How To Make A Perfect Blockbuster Movie Trailer

So, in ‘How To Make A Blockbuster Movie Trailer’ we get taken through all the cliches that feature in modern blockbuster trailers. From the opening ominous single note (think Inception) aimed at singling out your attention, to a ponderous question aimed at showing how deep this movie is. Right down to the unusual cover version of a classic pop track (in this example it’s ‘Spin Me Round’ by Dead Or Alive) and the OTT VFX shot to show your how action-y and exciting this film is going to be.

The result is that it works as both satire and as a legit template for how to make a movie trailer. In fact, it even works as a trailer just as white text on a black screen, which shows you just how conditioned we are to these.

Plus, you can also use it like a filmic Bingo card. Meaning next time you’re watching a blockbuster trailer, you can tick off the various different tropes which you also find featured in this video.
