7 Best Movie Trailer Websites

Preview movies before they come out

Watching movie trailers gives you a glimpse at what a movie is about before you watch it. Below are the best sites for finding free movie previews.

Most movie trailer sites are really similar, so you'll find everything from the latest movie trailers for upcoming films to old trailers, handmade lists of the best ones, and multiple trailers for the same movie.

If you find a trailer for something you're interested in, first check if it's on a free movie streaming site before paying for it.

  • Huge database of movie information.

  • Provides the title's release date.

What We Don't Like

With millions of titles and extremely thorough movie information, IMDb is one of the top 100 websites in the world and is a must-visit site for anyone looking for movie trailers.

The trailer section lets you view previews of the most popular movies and locate all the recently added trailers for movies that were just released and others that are coming out soon. It's also simple to locate trending trailers and the most anticipated ones.

If not for trailers alone, movie lovers should visit IMDb just to see the sheer amount of detail they have on both films and TV shows. It's one of the best sites for learning who played, or will play, in something.

What We Like
  • High-quality trailers.

  • Several ways to search.

What We Like

  • Reviews and other information on movies and actors.

Another place to find previews of upcoming films, trailers from the top box office movies, current movie trailers, and more, is Rotten Tomatoes.

Scrolling through the trailers on this site is easy because they're all on a single page. You can also browse the trailers by when the film will be in theaters.

Fresh movie trailers YouTube channel
What We Like
  • Huge variety of trailers.

  • Lots of filtering options.

  • Also includes related interviews, reviews, and news.

What We Don't Like
  • No official page just for movie trailers.

YouTube is the most popular video streaming site on the web, so it's no surprise that it's one of the best movie preview sites as well. Movie production companies and other users can upload movie trailers to YouTube that are free for everyone to watch.

Unlike other sites that have trailers, YouTube doesn't have a page dedicated just to those kinds of videos; they're mixed in with music videos, podcasts, news stations, and more. This means you can't easily find trailers for movies that are coming out soon or new trailers that were just released.

Instead, just search for any trailer you want to watch—including the year of the movie release is helpful to filter out all the other content on the site. There are also channels dedicated to trailers, such as Movie Trailers Source, Rotten Tomatoes Trailers, and FRESH Movie Trailers. You can also visit a YouTube channel from a specific media company or production company, such as Warner Bros Pictures or Disney.

ComingSoon.net trailers
What We Like
  • Has more than just movie trailers.

  • Multiple ways to find titles.

What We Don't Like
  • Several ads, including distracting in-video ads.

  • Search tool is unhelpful for finding just trailers.

Get movie previews, insider information, and the latest movie gossip at ComingSoon.net, one of the most popular entertainment sites on the web.

Not only can you find all sorts of movie trailers, you'll also get first dibs on insider gossip, speculation on upcoming movie plots, actor and actress information, and much more. 

One downside is that you can only browse the trailers page by the ones that were just added and by a category called Exclusive. There is a search tool and a page full of movies, but neither will guarantee that you'll find trailers.
