In my day (he wheezed)we called 'em previews. Lately it seems like you spend about half an hour watching trailers before the movie starts.
I still believe that some of them show all the best parts of the films.
I first learned the term "trailer" in 1964 in the trailer for "Mary Poppins". It starts off with Walt Disney in conversation with the head of the Martin Cinerama Theater chain, and Walt is enthusiastically describing his new picture shot in Cinerama - "Mary Poppins". After a moment, Walt says, "Why don't we show the audience our trailer", or something to that effect, and then the actual preview starts.
