5 of the best book trailers

This is BookMachine’s first ‘Best of’ post – as such, I wholeheartedly hope you find it to be outrageously wrong.

Has there ever been one of these lists you’ve looked at and thought: you know what, that’s spot on, they’ve really nailed that one there?

Nope? Good. That would be mighty boring.

 

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, by Seth Grahame-Smith

First up, this one is rapidly becoming a cult classic, who knew that the great man was also handy with a stake?


Little Bee, by Chris Cleave

A lower budget effort, but no less effective.

 

Shutter Island, by Dennis Lehane

The ‘motion-comic’ effect has been put to great use here. Graphic novel giants DC and Marvel are now eagerly producing feature-length movie versions of their books in a similar manner.

 

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution, Richard Dawkins

Pro-evolution pit bull Richard Dawkins is planted centre stage in this trailer – if the author is an engaging speaker then this method works well.

 

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet – David Mitchell

A short, simple and atmospheric animation.
