Movies use the same formula to make us want to watch them. We know this. They know this. And yet we all pretend it's not happening, because it's really fun to pay 15 bucks to turn your brain off for two hours. This video stitching together similar scenes in movie trailers shows how it's undeniably (and hilariously) true. All movie trailers are pretty much the same.
Establishing shots of cities. Vague lines. Characters looking cool. Silence. BWAAM. Action montages. It's all here.
