Can someone explain to me why previews are now called trailers? I don’t get it.

I still remember when they were labeled “PREVIEWS OF COMING ATTRACTIONS!” at the theaters. The sound was good, they told you something about the plot.

Now it is all explosions, noise more explosions and more noise. Dished out to you at a much higher decibel rating that they hurt my ears. And I’m half deaf!

Why are they called "trailers" if they're shown before the movie?
