iTunes Movie Trailers – A Second Look


Movie trailers are everywhere nowadays, mostly with crappy resolution and horrible frame rates. You can find almost any movie you want on YouTube, but that doesn’t mean that it’s going to look good, even in HD. It’s then that I almost always come back to Apple for the good stuff.

It’s easy to forget about the iTunes Movie Trailers site, because it doesn’t get a lot of press. I usually forget about it until some new Pixar flick comes out and you can only watch the preview on the site, then I spend an hour flipping through various trailers, seeing what’s coming out next. There’s a lot of cool stuff in there if you just dig around for a little bit.

But better yet, it’s easy. Click on a link and pick which movie size you want to download, as shown below:

Just pick the size you want and download away. You can watch it in glorious 1080p if you’ve got the time to download it, or just send it off for iPhone size and watch it as you go. It’s a great way to see new trailers in all of their glory from the convenience of your computer.

Now, you’re not going to see any red-band trailers here, but it is good stuff in high quality. It’s just another little Apple touch that’s easy to forget about until you’re reminded.

Here’s your reminder.
