The New York Public Library trailer is cleverly made with brilliance and wit. It's about a young man going to the library and seeking out his past.
Made to portray a movie, this trailer entices viewers with film-making techniques that makes a trip to the library seem like an epic journey. The trailer reminds me of The Da Vinci Code starring Tom Hanks; it's one of those movies where a man seeks out the truth after going through insane obstacles. The music in the background blasts with climax and resembles that of classical orchestrated sounds.
The opening scene is with a man's voice much like Morgan Freeman with whispering lines throughout the trailer saying "know the past, find the future," which makes it even more suspenseful. The New York Public Library trailer sure knows how to lure people in with witty and humorous tactics.
