How to Make a Movie Trailer on Computer/iPhone/Android

Last Updated: Jul. 08, 2021
Summary
In this guide, we'll show you 5 ways to make a blockbuster movie trailer easily and quickly online for free and on Windows PC, Mac, iPhone, and Android.

A movie trailer is also known as a preview or coming attraction. It is a marketing tool originally used by major motion picture studios to show the coming attractions.

Initially, trailers were shown at the end of the feature film, and this led to their being called "trailers". But it is somewhat ineffective because people are more likely to see them if they played before the film rather than making the viewer wait until after the credits.

Today, the trailer has been a popular promotional tool for television shows, video games, books, and more.

If you want to get your project noticed, an eye-catching movie trailer is what you need. Follow us to create a great movie trailer that grabs people's attention.
