This may not seem like such a big deal, so I apologize if I sound like a whiny DVD geek. I don't mean to. Something I always look forward to when checking out a new DVD is watching the original theatrical trailer for the film on the disc. I just enjoy seeing how the film was advertised, and the trailers are quite entertaining sometimes (for varying reasons, of course). But I've noticed a trend lately, most notably with Buena Vista (but now affecting Paramount, Sony, and now DreamWorks of all studios), of leaving the trailers off the disc. Am I the only one that finds this odd? Trailers have been more or less a standard feature on DVDs since the inception of the format. I understand that sometimes trailers for older films cannot be found (which may explain most of the examples at Paramount), but newer films like The Rookie, The Count of Monte Cristo, Sweet Home Alabama, and now Road to Perdition and The Ring (all these among many, many others) are released to DVD without trailers. What exactly is the deal here? I realize that a lot of people probably don't care, and would find it odd that anyone would want to watch a trailer for a film on that film's DVD, but this is such an easy thing to include that it doesn't really make sense not to. It can't possibly be a space issue, as most trailers are 3 minutes or less. At any rate, I think most studios are doing a very good job with their DVD releases, but I just don't want this trend to get any bigger. If anyone has an explanation for why trailers for newer films are left off their respective DVDs, I would be glad to hear it (that's not meant as sarcasm; I'm serious). Anyway, feel free to take me to task if you don't agree. And I apologize if it seems I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but I just don't want this trend to continue. I know many other people that enjoy watching trailers, and because they take up so little space, and because we have become accustomed to seeing them on DVDs, I see no real reason for their exclusion. Does anyone else agree? Or am I insane?
