By Jay Hunter – I’ve always loved teaser trailers, one of the first I can remember is for Godzilla in 1998, it barely told me anything about the movie, but I was hooked straight away. For me, they’re the embodiment of movie magic, condensed into just a few seconds. Their purpose is less to tell the audience about a movie’s content than simply to let them know that the movie is coming up in the near future, and to add to the hype of the upcoming release. Teaser trailers are often made while the film is still in production or being edited and as a result they may feature scenes or alternate versions of scenes that are not in the finished film.

Albeit, a few of the trailers I have listed below are more full length trailers than straight up teasers, but they still dangle the carrot, without giving away too much information. These are the best 25 trailers of all time.

25. Star Trek (2009)
