Ahead of War of the Worlds was a trailer for the upcoming movie Transporter 2. I thought the first movie was a lot of fun, and I’m also a great fan of movie trailers, but something about this trailer really struck me.
We’ve all seen (and heard me rant about) product placement in movies… but I’ve never seen such an obvious example of promoting a product in a movie trailer. Seriously, if you weren’t familiar with the lead actor or if they just took out the “Fox” logo, the first 30 seconds of this trailer could easily be an Audi commercial.
