Some people consider them the best part of the movie going experience – the Movie Trailer. Take a look at the evolution of the “coming attractions” from simple silent film splices, through the template style of the Golden Age of Hollywood, to the Auteurs of the 60s and finally into the Blockbuster era.

Coca-Cola Filmed Noisy Filmgoers And Put Them In Fake Movie Trailers

Posted on March 14th, 2014

To help drive home the point that you shouldn’t ruin a movie by talking, using your phone, or snacking excessively loud, Coca-Cola created a fake movie trailer featuring people in the actual theater disrupting the action on screen. Which served to drive home the clip’s tagline: “When you make noise during the movie, you become part of it.”

Using a green screen and a hidden camera in the theater’s lobby, unsuspecting patrons were filmed and then immediately composited into a fake trailer that served as a PSA reminding the audience to be polite and respectful to others while enjoying a movie. The turnaround time for pulling off such a stunt was incredibly tight given the clip had to run before the movie everyone was going to see, but there’s no doubt it would have put everyone in that theater on their best behavior.
