Trailer reels on Super 8mm

#1 by Andrew Woodcock ( deleted ) , Sun Nov 15, 2015 3:00 pm

Posted in the wrong category sorry to begin with. The topic was surrounding trailers on 35mm. I would also like to see Trailers on 8mm. Here are some I projected just the other day.

When I first put the screen back up again on Friday, my very first proper screening was to show a trailer reel I have. I also love trailer reels when a few are put together. This is the reel I showed to which I've kept the full original lead to this trailer in tact and then added one or two before it.


It begins with a dayset opener now and Batman Begins.


Next up is a remake of the old Incredible Hulk, simply called "Hulk". Again a totally action packed minute and a half trailer.



Finally, as the box says, the actual trailer that belongs in this box, "Speed".

Absolutely stunning pics there Andrew, I'd much rather see a good trailer reel than adverts any day, God knows we get enough of them on TV.

Some nice screen shots Andrew, I agree with Hugh on this, trailers all the way, so many adds now you forget what your watching.

Great screenshots there. Trailer reel compilations are a good way of saving shelf space.

I join them together David simply because they often are just not long enough by themselves. If I have the feature, then very often I place the actual trailer before the film or a similar trailer as in Disney features etc, but in this case, everything was just as shop purchased, so that is how I have chosen to keep the trailer and feature on this one.
I would see it as sabotage on this particular film if i were to begin chopping tails off etc.

Apologies for a little light seepage from the rear window to the right of the screen on these screen shots.These shots were taken in the day so until we have some blinds fitted, this is a problem I have to live with just for the time being.

Some nice screenshots there, Andrew. I have the Speed trailer in a standard Derann box. I have quite a lot of trailers. 'The Elephant Man'and 'Raise the Titanic' (scope) are my most recent trailer purchases with a few more shipping across the world to me as I type.

Used to like the 400ft reels from L.A. Films, they wee generally on one theme. Thunderbird Films were 200ft but most I bought were more mixed. Walton did a couple on 200ft I think they were the only ones they did. P.M. Films did a couple too. Both wre for their own releases.

Derann of course did numerous ones.

I do wish that each feature had the trailer too. Would have liked to see more day-sets too.

Advert reels, some were quite poor I think. More like television ones, not the ones shown in cinemas. Now if more real cinema adverts had been done, plus old ones. I would have bought more. One I would have loved to own featured Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and James Villiars.

I like to make my films in to a support reel 600ft sometimes, but mainly 800ft I have 12 reels with an episode of Captain Marvel, trailers, adverts daysets. Followed with a Look At Life/Pathe Pic type film, finishing with a cartoon.

Quote for the Post

"Please, sir. I want some more."
- "What!?"
- "Please sir, I want some more."
- "More?!"


I still love the smell of film in the morning

A few trls I viewed last night were firstly "Mars Attacks" from Barry at Indy Eight, one of his "value for money" reels, which
it certainly was, what a nice condensation it would have made.
The next being "King Kong", Peter Jackson's excellent remake, in 'scope, still available from CHC, again, what a nice digest
could have been done.
Lastly, the trailer to Jeff Wayne's music album "The War of the Worlds", a series of silhouettes, stills and computer graphics,
combined with some excellent music make this a nice view.

Wow, fab screenshots Hugh! I've got "Mars" on one of my 400ft bumper trailer reels. I must dig it out next time I'm off. I haven't seen it for quite some time now. there must be about 10 on that reel if memory serves me correctly.

Great colour on Mars Attacks, Hugh. Yesterday, I got some trailers from Paul Foster including The Jolson Story with excellent colour and pinky 'White Christmas'. Steel Valley released this. I can't read the filmstock but the colour issue looks like it's on the source material.

Mars attack does have great colour and is a really good trailer. "Mad as a box of frogs" but very entertaining!

I would have loved to have seen condensations of either "Mars" or "Kong", indeed the film "Cowboys vs Aliens" was a fun flick too, as
was "Godzilla", I'm sure a 2x600' of the afore mentioned would have proved popular.

On for a late one after 72hrs in work this week gone, and 10 hrs in bed today Ha ha !!

I will post screenshots of the "said" trailer reel later this evening based on previous chat here surrounding " Mars Attack" trailer.

So here goes!

Oh well, it'll have to be tomorrow now as the "Upload Function" appears to be redundant for tonight, or at the very least on a "Go Slow".
We shall try again in the morning, screenshots saved thankfully!

Ok we shall try again!

The reel begins with Die Hard. Its a funny old reel this as I initially bid on it only for the Die Hard trailer as this was what was advertised and the rest of the reel was "unknown" due to not having anything to view it on.

It wasn't a fortune, and as I already had the feature I thought Sod It, let's take a chance with this one.
Anyhow Die Hard is scratched, straight through the middle of the frame and was from the moment it landed through my letterbox but the good news is, there are loads of other trailers within this reel, all of which are perfect, that more than make up for the disappointment. So here goes, as said, beginning with Die Hard albeit scratched:



Next up, The Mask:



and next Jurassic Park:



Next up, a really short Blair Witch Project trailer followed by Deep Blue Sea.




And them Mars Attacks:

I got Derek at Derann the 35mm trailer for speed so he could bring it out on 8mm when he done the full feature

Thanks indeed then Dave! I have it as seen here and also a beautiful print of the feature. All thanks to you it would seem!

"Mars Attacks" Continued...


And then finally, another wacky film. The Tim Burton film The Nightmare Before Christmas:



Not bad to say I thought I was only buying the Die Hard trailer and the rest would be binned!
So as Hugh correctly says, e bay can have it's good days.
