Providing a platform to showcase trailers of upcoming releases helps bridge the gap between audiences and the films, while preserving the excitement and momentum.

I am delighted with the positive response received from cinema guests for the IB71 trailer, and I am confident that more production houses will join this trend as it facilitates effortless promotion and recognition for highly anticipated films scheduled for release. I am sure this wonderful platform would do more wonders in the future.”

Denzil Dias – VP and Managing Director – India Theatrical at Warner Bros Discovery adds, “Our films are best experienced on a big screen so it is natural that our fans should also view trailers on the big screen. With the introduction of the ‘Trailer Show’ now the audience can watch trailers in the format that our filmmaker always sought their promos to be seen on. The Trailer Show is a simple yet incredibly efficient way for us to promote films, as trailers provide the best glimpses of the upcoming films. It is critical that these important 2 minutes be presented in the best possible way to attract viewers.

We witnessed a fabulous response when the Fast X & Evil Dead Rise trailers was featured in the show. Through the world’s first-ever Trailer Show, PVR INOX has created a platform where viewers can access trailers of upcoming releases for a low cost of Re. 1. Judging by the audience response to this 30-minute show, it has surely been a huge hit and, undoubtedly, among production houses as well. We eagerly look forward to showcasing the trailers of our future releases on the big screens with The Trailer Show.”

Shony Panjikaran – General Manager, Sony Pictures Releasing International, India says, “Nothing can beat the experience of watching films at the theatres, and PVR INOX has always provided moviegoers with an unsurpassed experience. So, it’s only fair that trailers which are a glimpse of these films should also be enjoyed amidst these unmatched premium settings. Trailers have always been the best promotional tool for any film.

We are thrilled that ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’, ‘Sisu’, and ‘The Pope’s Exorcist’ trailers were part of this unique and exclusive trailer screening show. We congratulate the PVR INOX team for devising such an innovative platform, which is benefitting every stakeholder in the industry, besides proving to be a great entertainment offering for the audiences, at a price of just a rupee.”
