Trailer Music

Hey, something that's been bugging me about the movies is that whenever they show the trailers, they use some really good music but I can never find out what it is, because the stuff is usually just placeholder material for an unfinished score.

Does anybody know a reliable place to find out the music to the trailers?

Incidentally, I was watching the trailer of Peter Jackson's King Kong and what I found really funny is that they used the same choral tune that was used in the Fantastic Four trailers.

By funny, I mean to say that when Kong shows up to beat the tar out of the T-Rex, (which is exactly where the choral reaches its climax) I keep thinking he's gonna say, "It's CLOBBERIN' TIME!"

That is all.

Well I can't help you with this one, but I can certainly point you towards a hilarious spoof from Family Guy that puts down an oft-used crap song from trailers.

...to trailer music.



You know, that loud, dramatic choir music you hear in all the movie trailers nowadays?

I'm listening to Requiem for a Dream right now. Considering the film it's based on, it's highly ironic.

Requiem for a Dream is probably the most epic song in the history of ever.

Requiem for a Dream is everywhere now. They even play it in the Lost promos.

I'm pretty sure it was in the Underdog trailer.

DAH DAH! CRASH! DUT-DUT-DAH-DAH! CRASH! DUT-DUT-DAH-DAH! DUT-DUT-DAH-DAH-DUT-DUT-DAH-DAH-DUT-DUT-DAH-DAH! CRASH!

Edit: Sorry, It was the Spider-Man 2 trailer music in Underdog. My mistake.

Requiem for a Dream kicks ***.

Trailer music is pretty much done by "Immediate Music" - they specialise in making trailer music. I've got a bunch of their tracks downloaded through emule.

I know exactly what you mean! I'm in love with dramatic choruses, especially when they're belting out stuff in Latin.

Heheheh - the big fight against the African Citadel in #50 was written to Requiem for a Dream. I had an itunes playlist for #50 and each sequence was cued with specific music. :D

Voiced by Jason Lee. The weed in the office must have been strong that day.
True. But what if instead of channeling 'classic Jason Lee', they use 'Earl Hickey Jason Lee' to voice Underdog? Wouldn't that be something? :p

I always right the fight scenes to music, it's the only way to do it.

This isn't trailer music, but in terms of epic orchestral themes from media, the opening theme song from that show The Contender is one of the best superhero themes ever written. And it wasn't even intended for superheroes.

Listen to it here, but minimize so you just here the music without the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHXdTPD_WsA

A very well sequenced compilation of trailer music. There are a few misses in transition, but otherwise pretty well thought out for its breadth.

Also, I can sadly depict the trailer moments of at least 5 movies for every cue used.
