Is anyone else using the cinematic trailers feature and extremely disappointed with its implementation? I'm referring to the capability of Plex to stream a couple movie trailers that are coming soon to theaters?

In its current form Plex nearly always chooses to stream the most obscure foreign films or documentaries, regardless of the content you are about to watch. Worse still, it often repeats the same trailer with each new viewing. Additionally, despite specifically choosing the setting to stream only trailers of NEW and UNRELEASED movies, Plex often chooses movies that have already left the theater.

I used to use Cinema Experience on XBMC to for auto-streaming movie trailers and it did a MUCH MUCH better job. Properly matching the trailer's content rating, type, and exposure level (blockbuster vs independent film) to the movie that is queued up to play.

Plex made a big deal, press-wise, about this feature when they released it about a year ago but they haven't improved it one bit. It released as a fully broken feature with nary a word about improving it since.
