Why Women Rarely Get To Narrate Movie Trailers...


This is according to the BBC anyway, who took on the challenge of trying to make sense of an industry rule. The answer, in short? It’s still very much a man’s world. 

It’s a topic that I’ve actually never really given much thought to to be frank (and you likely haven’t either). Then again, I’m a dude, so maybe that’s partly why. 

But it’s worth discussing: How much would hearing a woman’s voice in the trailer for the next Michael Bay movie, for example, affect the audience’s reactions to that trailer?

Watch the BBC report below:
