    Why are film trailers bothered to be made?

    They are usually no longer than 60-90 seconds long. It does not seem that long to me. Are they pieces of 'cut-outs' from the ends previous films?

    I don't really understand your question, but trailers are for marketing. If there weren't trailers to bait people into theaters, we'll all be watching films in comfort of our couches.

    These days though, trailers are more like spoilers; they show scenes that spoil the suspense. That's why I don't watch trailers for sequels and popular franchises.

    No, they are scenes from the films, although fan made trailers are mostly made from cut outs from the previous films.

      I have not been to theater in several years and hardly went before that.
      I did not see any sense in watching them.
      The last part I did ask about.

    Film trailers are the highlights of a movie that attracts people to the theater. Personally, because of the “The Two Towers” film trailer, I fall in love with “the Lord of the Rings” trilogy movies and the novel as well. It’s a good promotion and sale tool.

      How much do these cost to make compared to their income (e.g. - are they worth it?)?

    i think trailers that you see in the theater are usually about three minutes long.  The shorter ones you'll see on television.  I enjoy trailers.  Even if a movie looks lousy, three minutes is a lot more palatable than 90 minutes.  I do think they often give too much away.  Maybe 90 seconds to two minutes would be a better length.

      I have never been to one so I have never timed it. I have never even seen one on TV.

    Trailers are for marketing the movie and most of the time trailer is much better than an actual movie itself.

      Thank you Jan, that makes sense.
