2016 Best Trailer Winner



I was real close to changing my mind and giving this to Suicide Squad but what made me stick with Fences is that in many ways it had the bigger challenge.  Making trailers for really talky dramas can be difficult but here they managed to find a way to cut a really intense trailer that makes you intrigued by the film without having to really even give away or even describe the film’s plot.  The footage they choose to cut to really illustrates a lot of the points being made in the speech and the way it transitions kind of seamlessly into that Viola Davis scene is also pretty cool.
