Are movie trailers printed on the same film as the final movie print? Such as if the final print was done on Kodak 2383, would it be the same for the movie? I would assume they are as to preserve the image, but I wasn't sure about cost.

Thanks

Kodak and Fuji make two print stocks, and Agfa makes one, and all of them are used for trailers, though usually not the more expensive Vision Premier nor probably the new Fuji XD stock.

More than likely, a trailer is printed on Vision 2383, Fuji 3513 D.I., or Agfa. There is usually no attempt to match the print stock of the feature to that of the trailer -- in fact, the trailer is often cut & color-timed by a different department (marketing) without much input from the filmmakers, and sometimes printed at another lab. For example, "Northfork" was printed by Technicolor on Fuji stock with a full skip-bleach, but the trailers went through a cheap D.I. and were printed by Fotokem on Agfa .
