Characteristics of a Trailer

When researching the typical conventions and characteristics of a trailer I came across this website which made everything very clear to me:

Most of the information I already knew, like: “Most movie trailers feature clips from the film they’re advertising. These clips are chosen carefully to give the audience an understanding of the narrative and characters.”

It also made me aware that the choice of music is important to engage the audience, voiceover and taglines are also very effective. The inclusion of a “famous” director or actor is also very important.
