In a world where Hollywood releases hundreds of new movie trailers a day, only one stands out…

And typically, it’s the one that has a voice over matching the mood and tone of the movie itself.

Whether it’s the deep or epic delivery of a VO for action dramas and blockbuster trailers, or the more natural and laid-back enunciation often heard in previews of indie movies, the right voice over is critical in capturing the attention and interest of your audience.

Of course, other equally important elements make a great voice over for movie trailers.

And if you’re currently creating a trailer, knowing what they are can be the difference between generating excitement and anticipation for your movie, and watching your film fall flat at the box office.

Because the truth is that while the film is the thing, its trailer is the sneak peek that can help drive interest, shape audience perception, and ultimately influence movie ticket sales.

Tone and Delivery

As we highlighted above, a great VO for movie trailers immediately matches the tone and mood, and therefore also the genre of the film.

In other words, there should be no question as to whether the viewer is about to get a taster of an up-and-coming horror flick, rom-com, or action movie.

Achieving this comes down to the voice artist’s vocal tones and delivery.

Both are essential in evoking the right emotions and setting the stage (so to speak) for the film to come.

For example, if you’re working on a suspense or horror movie, a voice over with a deep ominous tone would immediately convey these genres—and likely raise hairs on the back of the neck in the process!

For a lighter, romantic film, an upbeat or even more sensual style of voice would better signal what the film is about and, importantly, who it’s targeting.

Finally, delivering the script with an eye to employing the right variations in volume and pace helps maintain the mood and keep the audience engaged.


For years, the industry standard in VOs was set by the master of movie trailer recordings, Don LaFontaine.

His deep commanding voice and signature phrase, “In a world…” was hugely distinctive and became famous across the globe.

Many movie trailers today continue to use similar rich or raspy voice overs that signal a suspenseful, dramatic, or action-packed film.

The intensity and gravitas of this kind of voice create an immediate emotional connection with the target audience.

In doing so, it sets up their expectations regarding the experience they can expect when finally settling down to watch the full-length film.

Others, however, may look for a distinctive voice with a different kind of personality.

If your film is a comedy or fun animated movie, for example, a voice with a charismatic or cheeky tone may better reflect the movie’s spirit and resonate more easily with an audience up for a good time and a few laughs.

The voice of the great actor, Geoffrey Rush, who narrated the Minions movie, was also used in the film’s trailer and is a perfect example of a voice with a wonderfully playful personality.

Understanding how the personality of a voice can elicit the right emotional responses from your audience is essential when creating a trailer for your movie.


Whether fun and friendly or deep and intense, your movie trailer voice over must also exude the right type of energy.

For instance, a voice over for a trailer introducing an adrenaline-pumping fantasy or action blockbuster would typically be powerful and dynamic. As the trailer’s action careered across the screen, the VO would have to match it in urgency and excitement, capturing the thrills and spills of the film itself.

This, of course, would be so different from the voice over needed for a family-friendly comedy or a historical docudrama. In the latter, the energy would be more balanced though just as compelling, with a subdued intensity reflecting the significance of the historical events or figures being portrayed.

In all cases, the voice artist you engage must be able to grasp the kind of energy they need to bring to the recording so that they can draw in the right audience and create the kind of anticipation that makes those viewers immediately want to see more the second the movie trailer ends.


Of course, no amount of energy or personality will make up for confusing or incoherent narration.

That’s why it’s essential you ensure the voice talent you choose for your trailer has a clear delivery and precise enunciation.

If your trailer script is centered around conveying key details about the plot, characters, or settings, then it’s critical your audience actually gets to hear it, right?

But no matter the kind of voice actor you need for your movie trailer, the good news is you’ll find them all here at Voice Crafters.

Whatever your specific requirements, we can help you and our simple three-step process ensures you can find the right talent for your trailer ASAP.
