JoBlo.com's Top 10 Trailers of 2010: The Town

Dec. 22, 2010by: Alex Keen

Welcome to the 10 Best Trailers of 2010. This is the 10th Annual List dating back to 2001 and my sixth year bringing it exclusively to JoBlo.com. If you visit the Trailers Page frequently, you should know my tastes quite well. Keep coming back for the rest of the year and we'll slowly be rolling out the Top 10 one by one. Sometimes great trailers make great movies and other times they make you see awful movies. Don't hesitate to strike back below if you think I must be completely nuts. (Also, keep in mind that some trailers that you've seen this year were on last year's list.)

# 8 THE TOWN

Ben Affleck is back on a win streak with this incredible trailer (and movie). There some fantastic interactions between Affleck and Jeremy Renner that reminded me of some of the best modern gangster flicks. Then, when the action starting picking up, THE TOWN completely felt like the great Michael Mann flick, HEAT. Thats not bad company to be in - and for sure, this trailer doesnt feel like a knock off. I was really surprised at how well composed this trailer was and THE TOWN pulled me in enough to watch this over again several times. Easily one of the best action trailers of the year!


THE REST OF THE LIST SO FAR:

#10 KICK-ASS Red Band Trailer
#9 BURIED Trailer
#8 THE TOWN Trailer
#7 INCEPTION Trailer
#6 SUPER 8 Trailer
#5 WINNEBAGO MAN Trailer
#4 SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD International Trailer
#3 COWBOYS & ALIENS Teaser

I've watched this movie every night since Wednesday. I forgot how awesome the trailer was. Very good movie. The only thing I didn't agree with in this trailer was that it gave away that Ben was one of the bank robbers who kidnapped her. But then you watch the movie and see that this it happens in the first 3 minutes and it's not a secret twist.

Ya, fucking awesome trailer, definitely #3. And the trailer I watched the most ever. Around 30 times. While nothing spectacular unique wise, it was just very well edited, with a great, great score and great atmosphere.
Overall also the #1 movie of the year.

Great pick. A lot of people including myself remember seeing the trailer before Inception and thinking how awesome it looks.

Alright here is where we differ. When I saw this trailer I was like 'ok we got don draper, hamfleck and hurt locker all in one movie, sweet.' They kidnapped the lady and also showed affleck hitting on her. Right when I saw this I turned to my chick and said 'he is the one that kidnapped her.' Boom whatta ya know they tell you in the trailer he was the one to kidnap her.

Then the title comes up THE TOWN and I'm like wow what an awful name. I'm sure the movie is awesome but this trailer didn't

To be fair, the reveal of Affleck being the kidnapper isn't a secret twist in the movie, it literally happens within the first 3 minutes.
