Alfred Hitchcock famously made cameos in nearly all of his films. As far as trailers for those films went, though, he often made much more than a cameo – he was the star. “Hitch” led audiences on a tour through the Bates home and motel for the famous trailer for his 1960 chiller Psycho and, in a trailer for The Birds, jovially lectured us on the ways humans have helped our winged friends over the years – making hats of them, putting them in gilded cages… even making meals of them. (It was never going to end well.)

For this episode of Rotten Tomatoes’ new video series, ‘Trailers Reloaded,’ we’re reliving the best of Hitchcock’s trailers – for films like Psycho and The Birds, Dial M for Murder and To Catch a Thief. It’s a journey back through time that offers a fascinating perspective on how movie advertising has changed, and one that proves the Master of Suspense was also a masterful builder of audience anticipation.

In Trailers Reloaded you can re-experience your own awesome sense of anticipation for some of the biggest movies ever, with collections of trailers ranging from Hitchcock classics right through to the Harry Potter movies and Marvel’s epic teasers for the films of the MCU. The series is just one of many new series you can find on The Rotten Tomatoes Channel, now available on The Roku Channel and Peacock, and soon to be available on XUMO TV, and beyond. The channel is a 24/7 non-stop ode to the best in movies and TV, packed with nostalgic looks back at great moments and awesome trailers, interviews with mega-stars and game-changing filmmakers, and trivia, games, and hilarious debates. Check it out – we think you’ll like it.
