The iTunes Movie Trailers app lets you watch trailers and clips from recent and upcoming movies whenever and wherever you want. If the movie is currently playing in theaters, the Showtimes tab will show you local showtimes. And after you tap a poster to see the clips and trailers you can play, the Details tab will give you a short summary along with basic rating, cast and director info, and a link to the movie's official website, plus related content (other movies, music, books) available in iTunes. If you have an AppleTV, you can also watch the trailers on your big screen using AirPlay.
You can view everything playing in nearby theaters with the Theaters tab on the bottom. And the Calendar tab organizes the contents by date in a scrolling calendar that takes you through what's come out the last few months and what's coming all the way to the end of the year. On the iPad it's like walking through a movie poster gallery where you can touch the posters and view the trailers on the spot. And to help you keep track of what particularly interests you, anytime you're looking at a particular movie, tap the action button on the upper right and you can add it to your favorites list which you can view via the Favorites tab on the lower right. You can also tweet or send an email to share your enthusiasm.
