Great film, appalling trailer: Serpico

Published: 7th Jan, 2009

Two trailers, one good, one bad

Anyone who’s had the pleasure of sitting through Serpico knows that it’s one hell of a film. It’s the story of a hairy bohemian cop taking on the more crooked guys in his precinct. Al Pacino has never been better, nor more bearded. And yet, this is what 1970s cinema audiences were treated to as an appetiser – possibly the most bumbling and confused trailer of all time.

As a bonus, here’s a great trailer that turned out to be a very bad film. Weirdly.
