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 movies to old trailers, handmade lists of the best movie trailers, 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.

iTunes Movie Trailers

Latest movie trailers on Apple's website

What We Like

  • High-quality movie trailers.

  • Several ways to find trailers.

  • No website ads.

What We Don't Like

  • Trailers don't have closed captions.

iTunes Movie Trailers is part of Apple's website that has just movie trailers. The videos are high quality and the website is free from ads, so it's one of the best places to go for the best movie trailers.

You can sort these movie previews by recently added, most popular, exclusive, genre, and studio. The search tool lets you find a movie trailer by cast members and director.

Most movie trailer sites don't support so many browsing methods, so this is your best bet for finding trailers for movies you don't even know about yet.

The RSS feed at the bottom of Apple's site lets you stay updated with every new movie trailer they release.

What We Like

The trailer section of IMDb 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.

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 a movie or TV show.

Rotten Tomatoes

Top movie trailers at Rotten Tomatoes

What We Like

  • Easy to find trailers for movies opening this week.

  • Helpful categorizing.

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

You can also browse movie trailers by when the film will be in theaters and by the top-streamed movies.

Sorting and filtering options let you find trailers for movies that have a particular Rotten Tomatoes score, movies in one or more specific genres, and films that are popular or that were recently added to the site.

YouTube

YouTube movie trailers

What We Like

  • Huge variety of movie trailers.

  • Lots of filtering options to help find movie previews.

  • Also includes interviews, reviews, and news reports about movies.

What We Don't Like

  • No official page from YouTube for just 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 movie trailers, YouTube doesn't have a page dedicated to just trailers; 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, you can search for any movie trailer you want to watch. There are also channels dedicated to trailers, such as Movieclips 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

Latest trailers from ComingSoon.net

What We Like

  • Has more than just movie trailers.

  • Multiple ways to find the movie previews.

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 to this movie trailer site 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.
