15 movie trailers that make you cry

From ”The Bucket List” to ”Titanic” and even ”Uptown Girls,” readers on EW.com’s PopWatch blog reveal the previews that turn on their waterworks

Posted on

UPTOWN GIRLS
”I will never forget the trailer for Uptown Girls, with Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning. The last exchange, when Brittany goes, ‘I don’t see any grownups here,’ and Dakota replies, ‘I do,’ was enough for me and my friend to break out the tissues.” — Dennis

MOONLIGHT MILE
”The movie ended up being terrible, but every time ‘Someone Saved My Life Tonight’ swelled up in the Moonlight Mile trailer, I was a wreck. A WRECK. It was all dead fiancée, grieving parents, new love, hot Gyllenhaal, etc., and I just couldn’t handle it, I guess. I must’ve seen it four or five times before other movies and cried every time.” — Hayley

THE STORY OF US
”Turns out the movie was nowhere near as good as the trailer. With an Eric Clapton guitar score and all those clips of births and deaths, who wouldn’t cry?” — Dave

MY LIFE
”Michael Keaton in My Life. I watched it in a theater with a high-school friend of mine. It did not help that I lost one of my grandmothers to cancer three years before this movie came out. Once the hospice bed was shown, I was in tears.” — Stephanie T.
