Stunning HD movie trailers in 720p, 1080i

by Dan Filice / April 11, 2006 7:57 AM PDT

On the Apple website (, under Quicktime, they have many movie trailers posted in 480p, 720p and 1080i. The 720p and 1080i trailers take a long time to download onto your computer, even with DSL, but WOW!. On a small LCD computer monitor set for 1024X768 ot 1280X1024, they are stunning! (Take your high-res monitor off 640X480 already!) If you don't have a Mac you may need to download the free Quicktime Player for PC to view. It's there for download on the website. It's worth it. The trailer for King Kong was so stunning I kept it for future viewing.

While I was basking in the SoCal sun I saw the weather report for your area...nothing but rain, rain, rain. I think it's time to trade-in your TV and buy a row boat!
