Over the years, I have seen movie trailers with scenes that didn't make it into the actual movie. I am curious how often this happens, and how close to the actual release date these types of edits are still being made.

Very often the trailers are made up to a year before final edits are done.

What I've always wondered is why so many trailers are far better than the movies turn out to be.

I remember "Murder at 1600". Daniel Banaili or whatever the bald dude was named had a great line in the trailer that NEVER made it to the movie.

"You were born to be a chalk outline".

Nice imiage.

Problem is that chalk outlines are a myth to begin with LOL, but still a cool line.

Because keeping attention for 30 seconds is far easier than for 90 minutes.
