Are you tired of movie trailers that go on FOREVER and give away the whole freakin' movie? Well, theater owners have heard your complaints.
The National Association of Theater Owners has issued some "voluntary guidelines" calling for trailers to be no longer than TWO MINUTES. That's 30 seconds shorter than the current norm.
They also don't want to show trailers for a movie more than five months before its release . . . and marketing materials can't be displayed inside a theater more than four months before a movie's release.
These rules will apply to movies released on or after October 1st . . . but it's up to the individual theater chains to implement them, and it's not clear if all of them will.
(I always used to LOVE the trailers . . . sometimes more than the movies. But these days it definitely feels like were ASSAULTED with them. They're so long, and there are so many of them. And they really are way too involved.)
