Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.
Sure, the movie needs no introduction now. It’s a classic. But what about in 1963 when it had to introduce itself to audiences? How did it sell its story then?
Simple. By showcasing the ridiculous list of acting talent that it had lined up from Steve McQueen to Charles Bronson. Give it some tension, some excitement, and parade a bunch of big stars in front of the firing squad, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a picture (and one hell of a trailer).
Check out the trailer for yourself:
