The app includes a number of features, including integration with iCloud to push theater and trailer notifications across devices.
- Access hundreds of movie trailers, clips, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and images, available in HD or SD.
- Explore an interactive, year-long release calendar that helps you plan when you'll be going to the theaters.
- Save favorite movies and theaters for immediate access anytime.
- Search what's playing at your local theaters and purchase tickets directly from your iPad or iPhone.

This app works with iOS 4.3 or greater, which means Verizon CDMA users will have to upgrade to iOS 5 to use it, not that that's a big deal.

Nice little surprise

This is a nice little surprise on the iOS 5 and iCloud release day.
The app itself is slick and it's nice to be able to watch trailers so easily on the phone, but selecting Movies under Theaters crashes the app for me.

Weird that they didn't have this all along. On the mac iTunes there was always a trailer section but not on the iOS devices. Even appleTV had a trailer section. Glad they finally added it, looks pretty slick.

This app is pretty cool, and I'll probably give it some use over flixster (when it comes to trailers and such). What I'm really looking forward to (and praying for) is this means that they will soon integrate Siri into this movies app and I can then find movie times, theaters, buy tickets, etc. all with my voice. =D

Subtitles? Closed Captions?

I haven't upgraded to iOS 5 yet. Does anyone know if the new Trailers app has closed captions or subtitles for those with hearing loss?

Since it's a free app, is there no way of signing into the US store and simply downloading it? I know our accounts in the UK cannot download US store material, but how easy is it to set up a free US account for example? And is it worth the hassle?

No, only the video application (on a first gen' iPad) has a closed captioning toggle in Settings.

I added a screen shot of the settings available for the Trailers app.

No reason why it should be US-Only. I'd say give it time to propagate. Or, they're intentionally delaying international roll-out, like with the Apple Store App.

The reason is because they have obviously not organised content partnerships with theatres in other countries yet. Everyone's a conspiracy theorist :p

yes you can do that..i made a us account but i live in canada and you can download any app thats in the us store but sometimes they dont open or function properly.

the trailers app worked at first but not anymore...i got the jimmy fallon app from the us store and that worked beautifully ..u just need to make an account with a legit us address and optional credit card
