One of the keys to building buzz with the general movie audience and the fans was the marketing campaign for new Star Trek movie. Yesterday Paramount was honored for their promotional work by winning four Golden Trailer Awards — details below. Plus did you know people are still making ST09 trailer mashups? We take a look at some of the latest.
Star Trek Golden Trailer Awards
Firstly the Star Trek trailer won both the Best In Show and the Best Summer 2009 Blockbuster. It was not clear which theatrical trailer won the best trailer awards, but it is mostly likely ‘Trailer 3’ or the theatrical trailer which ran with Watchmen, and was generally regarded as the best one.
And for TV, the Star Trek ‘Dare’ commercial (also known as the Superbowl Commercial) won Best Summer 2009 TV Spot.
And finally the ‘final one sheet’ poster won Best Summer 2009 Blockbuster Poster.
Golden Trailer Awards were handed out at a ceremony at the Directors Guild in Los Angeles last night. Winners were each awarded the golden trailer trophy seen here.
