Once this has happened the trailer has grabbed our attention. In order to further excite and impress us the trailer also shows the power of nature and the ability of a man, so small in comparison and in this case Tom Cruise, to conquer nature. We are drawn into the adventure and want him to succeed. In the trailer the scenes move quickly onwards which stimulates the feeling of pace and action. There are long shots with panoramic views of the landscape. This gives us a feeling of the large scale of nature and therefore, almost subconsciously, of the large scale of the film.
We are left with the feeling that no expense has been spared for our enjoyment. There are also close shots of the characters faces which enable us to gauge their emotions and individual characters. We inevitable will feel various emotions towards these characters and therefore our curiosity is stimulated to learn more of them. The trailer uses the original, familiar and instantly recognisable theme tune from the original television series and which has become synonymous with an impossible mission. The theme tune however, is now a more upbeat and modern version.
It is indicative of action, danger and excitement. This tune pervades the trailer leaving us in no doubt that an impossible mission will take place. If we wish to participate in this modern mission then we must go to see the film. From my analysis of these two film trailers it is interesting to see the way in which similar and also contrasting techniques are used to persuade us to see the full feature films. In order to succeed, a trailer must grab our attention, stimulate our interest, excite us or evoke emotions that leave us wanting more.
