Time-Shifted Sponsor: Trailer Town

Last week’s Six Colors sponsor was Trailer Town, which launched last Friday afternoon, so their sponsored post got held up a little bit. But here it is!

Trailer Town was founded by some movie-loving web designers and developers who, after being unable to find a great movie trailers website, set out to build one themselves. It’s exactly what it should be: A beautifully designed site featuring a curated feed of the latest trailers, presented well. It’s a trailer site fans would make—because they did.

Trailer town is for:

  • When you want to keep up with what’s new. Follow it and you won’t miss a thing.
  • When you’re looking for something in particular, search the well-organized, large-and-growing collection of films and their trailers.
  • When you’re not in a theater but you want a theatrical experience. They’ve minimized everything that makes online video annoying, and we’ve designed our site to treat trailers as cinematic entities.
  • When you’re asking yourself, “What big movies are coming next?” Check out the film calendar for an “at a glance” view of the big stuff.

As fellow Six Colors readers, they wanted to share their site with you first. So if you like movies at all you should follow @trailer_town on Twitter or sign up for their weekly email.
