What Next?

Postby brogine » Tue May 24, 2022 2:50 pm

Was interested to see this in a novel (the author a fellow New Yorker, for what that’s worth). I’d never come across it outside of my childhood coterie. ‘Coming attractions’ as a synonym for ‘movie previews’. Because . . . at that time, previews were introduced by a slide on the screen reading ‘Coming Attractions’. And we took that, obviously, to refer to the teasers themselves.
