** Elastica's track "Connection" was poplular duing the 80's and 90's. The song has a heavy, high-energy chorus appropriate for frenetic action sequences. Then at a moment of tension [[DramaticPause everything stops]] except a vocal solo singing "the vital connection is made"...and the instrumentation coincides with the climax of the onscreen stunt.

** This has since been condensed to simply 'This summer/fall/July/whathaveyou'; in particularly poisonous cases, this is followed several cuts later by an exhortation for the audience to [[TheyFightCrime PUNCH CRIME]] or otherwise do something that the characters in the film will be doing (rather than, more sincerely, exhorting them to purchase a ticket and see their film) They may also be asked to go on an adventure "beyond imagination", or beyond something similar. This was perhaps a fair cop in ''Film/{{Zardoz}}'''s advertising campaign (well, it was in keeping with the lunatic bombast of the film, at least), but when attributed to the ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy'' films, it just looks desperate.

** For high-budget blockbusters heavy on CG, the letters might slowly tumble over from behind the camera from different directions in such a way that they'll perfectly align themselves into the movie's title. Sometimes, one of these letters will float by extremely close to the camera, allowing you to see the texture in the letter. Creator/WarnerBros and Creator/{{Marvel}} use these for their logos too, with metallic reflections of the studio and pages from the comic books, respectively, revealing they're the companies' logos as the camera dramatically zooms out.

* A (green) MPAA Rating Card reads "The following PREVIEW has been approved for / ALL AUDIENCES / by the Motion Picture Association of America" (Since 2014, theatrical trailers "have been APPROVED to / ACCOMPANY THIS FEATURE") and then "The film advertised has been rated PG-13..."



** The trailer for the ''Film/{{Star Trek|Into Darkness}}'' film ''Into Darkness'' is punctuated by nothing ''but'' booms.
** Ever since ''Film/{{Inception}}'', we've been treated to its signature "[[PreviewsPulse BWAAAAAAAAA]]" as well.
** A variation seems to include HellIsThatNoise as in the case of the Film/{{Prometheus}} trailer.



* Whatever the movie's actual soundtrack is, the trailer's own soundtrack will be ''Music/CarminaBurana'', ''[[Film/RequiemForADream Lux Aeterna]]'' or scratchy, tension-filled electronic music.

** Unless it's a {{sequel}}, in which case it will usually use the first film's soundtrack.
** Or a guitar-heavy rock song that doesn't appear on the soundtrack playing over action-packed, fast-cut footage from the movie. This is usually done in TV commercials for the movie instead of the full trailer.

* Go ahead and browse Website/YouTube for recut trailers. People are [[GenreSavvy familiar enough with this trope]] that they rearrange a movie's content to pitch it as the wrong genre. Some films, by merit of their quality lend themselves to this, such as the {{Narm}}alicious remake of ''TheWickerMan'' becoming [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_mW8mBzmHo a comedy]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kqqMXWEFs Ten Things I Hate About Commandments]] being an example of said culture jamming.
