There's some good news for all movie buffs - Apple has launched the iTunes Movie Trailers app that lets viewers preview beautiful movie posters, find movies at local movie theaters, and check the schedule of upcoming releases using a built-in calendar. Though the name suggests that the app would mainly be about watching trailers, it does a lot more than that. Read on to find more about the iTunes Movie Trailers app.

 

In fact, iTunes Movie Trailers has been around since a long time, albeit primarily as a website. And with the recently launched iPhone app, Apple wants to take the iTunes Movie Trailers goodness to an altogether new level. The app consists of the following tabs - Trailers, Calendar, Top 25, In Theatres and Favorites.

The Trailers tab also serves as the home screen for the app and provides access to a large number of trailers, clips, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and images, available in HD or SD.

The Top 25 tab shows a listing of most downloaded trailers, box office rankings, and top movies on iTunes to buy or rent. The 'In Theatres' tab shows you a listing of movies running on a nearby theatre and the associated showtime information.

The Favorites tab lets users bookmark favorite movies and theaters for immediate access anytime. Users can share trailers with friends using email or built-in Twitter integration. Users with iOS 5 devices can sync their favorite theaters and movies between devices using iCloud. Users no longer need to visit the iTunes Movie Trailers website, instead they can now watch all their favorite trailers and get movie information using this app.

The iTunes Movie Trailer app is currently available only in the United States. If you are fond of movie trailers, I'd highly recommend that you check it out and let us know if you liked it or not.
