    As you may know above, I am wondering if there is an app, which displays Apples Movie Trailer. Same as in Front Row.

    I found one web app. But it was very crappy and not well displayed.

    I wonder if any of you geniuses can help me out here.

    You can "roll your own". Just go to the Apple Trailer page (apple.com/trailers/iphone) and hit the + key and add to Hone Screen you have one. ;) This is what I did.

    BoxOffice App

    When the app store first came out there was a "fandango" type movie app called BoxOffice. In subsequent versions, there has been an update allowing you to click a link that loads the trailer. However, I can't find the app when I search it. I tried to download it for a friend and just could not for the life of me find it. That's about as good as it gets right now.

    It's been gone for weeks now and the developer has heard little or nothing from Apple as to why.

    The last updated added the brieft RottenTomatoe reviews and Trailers. Which the trailers, even over 3G, looked like Wifi quality when compared to say youtube over 3G. Due to that, the trailers from this app are not recommended for EDGE network.

    I still have my copy, I sure hope the maker gets things straightened out. After those last couple updates, it was a must have app. Only thing people complained about were a few that said some theaters were missing. All 5 of mine were there and you can favorite them.

    BoxOffice had them, and they looked good over WiFi. For some reason it's not in the App store at the moment though.

    As mentioned above 'BoxOffice' played movie trailders.

    The free movies.app also does trailers as well as showtimes and such.
