When you watch a film trailer is there things that are done that really put you off the film?

For me there is two very specific things that when I see it I write the film off as bad and never watch.

One is the deep voiced man explaining everything over the top of vague snippets of the film.

The second and the one that really gets me dismissing the film is "audience reaction trailers" when you get people standing outside the cinema going on about how the film was the funniest film of this decade, or how it is super brilliant and the such.

So what puts you off a film from the trailers alone?

As you say, "audience" outside saying "10 out of 10, was brilliant" etc
Also most trailers seem to show almost the whole film these days Is there any need to go see the film?

Baffling use of camera shake and anything that hints at a cookie cutter American patriotism (read: propaganda) feel good film.
