After adding movie listings to search results in its Android apps and elsewhere, Google announced today it is now including movie trailers next to the listings. They will play directly on the results page, and next to showtimes is a “Trailer” button. Clicking the button will pop open the trailer in a YouTube video without navigating off the page. To search for movie listings on Google, type your city or town followed by “showtimes”, e.g., NYC showtimes.

Finding the perfect movie for your next excursion to the theater just got easier, thanks to an improvement that enables you to watch trailers directly from the search results page. For example, if you want to check out all of the movies available in your area, you can search [showtimes nyc] on google.com in English, click the Trailer button next to a listed movie, and the official trailer on YouTube will pop up. If that movie’s not your cup of tea, you can click the X in the right-hand corner and watch the other trailers available. The Trailer button is also available if you’re searching for a specific movie—say, [finding nemo 3d].
