* Buddy movie? Expect the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCVFEvVYdwk theme]] to ''Film/MidnightRun'' by Creator/DannyElfman.
* The trailers for ''Film/TinkerTailorSoldierSpy'' made excellent use of DannyElfman's score from ''Film/TheWolfman2010''.

* ''Film/EdwardScissorhands'' - DannyElfman said, as part of a commentary track for the DVD, that every now and again his friends will call up and say "Edward's back!" when some trailer uses that music. It's also frequently imitated in ads for other companies - indeed, if ''any'' ad's BGM involves an slightly spooky choir, it's probably an imitation of this score.

* An early trailer for ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' used Creator/AlanSilvestri's score to ''Film/FatherOfTheBride'' along "Friend Like Me". The rest of the trailers just used "Friend Like Me".

* The trailer for ''{{Doug}}'s 1st Movie'' had background music from the live action ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians''. Most notably is when Skeeter says, "There's something bad behind me, isn't there?", an instrumental "Cruella de Vil" is heard, and then later was the music used during Pongo and Perdita's departure to find the puppies. The VHS commercial for ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' had the same.

* The use "Journey to the Line" from ''TheThinRedLine'' makes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx6HnLvK9M0 the trailer]] for ''Film/PearlHarbor'' look so frickin' awesome and epic that it made a lot of people think it could be another ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' or at least a really cool movie. [[NeverTrustATrailer You know what they say....]]

* Aversion: the first trailer for the 2004 version of ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' used a churning, string-section-heavy part of the actual score (though that may have been a different recording than the one used in the film), followed by a small snippet of Gerard Butler singing "The Music of the Night". The trailers for the DVD version, oddly, still contained the score, but little to no singing (similar to the ''Sweeney Todd'' example above), except the narration still called it "Andrew Lloyd Webber's triumphant musical"!
* One of the first teasers of Creator/RidleyScott's ''{{Gladiator}}'' used "Anvil of Crom" from ''ConanTheBarbarian'' by Basil Poledouris. What better way to set the epic tone for the then upcoming movie? The film had music by HansZimmer, Klaus Badelt and LisaGerrard.

** And then it was ''actually reused'' (in the film itself) in ''FredClaus''.
