Some folks at scoured YouTube for the best trailers so you wouldn't have to. They picked the best 50. Or did they? Here are my faves:

Number 27: The Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera:

Number 18: Woody Allen's Sleeper:

Number 17: Stanley Donen's Charade:

Number 15: Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction:

Number 10: Stanley Kubrick's The Shining:

Number 5: Orson Welles introduces Citizen Kane:

Number 2: Alfred Hitchcock introduces Psycho. This trailer terrified me as a kid.

And number one is Ridley Scott's original Alien-- with the best ad line ever written--"In space, no one can hear you scream":

What did they leave out?
