What is Movieclips?

Movieclips.com is one of the pioneers in movie trailers industry. Established in 2009, it was the first website who got an official license from Hollywood tycoons to stream blockbuster trailers outside the US. The demand for legal trailers was huge that year. Movieclips.com enables users to watch fresh trailers, share them on social networks, embed trailers on other websites and purchase video content. In addition to all this, Movieclips offer developer API, so programmers can build cool mobile and web application on the premise of Movieclips content and spread movie news all over the world.
