I gotta look up that Pump Up the Volume trailer now.
Definitely. I was going to mention "Cells" - SIN CITY too! And don't forget trailers that use music from other movies. I'll throw in...
"First Cool Hive" by Moby - THE FIFTH ELEMENT
"Blue" by La Tour - BASIC INSTINCT
"The Ascension" by James Horner from COCOON - trailer for SUPER 8
"Wave of Mutilation" by The Pixies - SOUTHLAND TALES
Music from POWAQQATSI by Philip Glass - PHILADELPHIA
Music from THE MISSION by Ennio Morricone - THE UNTOUCHABLES
Music from DEMOLITION MAN by Elliot Goldenthal - MEN IN BLACK and MEN IN BLACK II
Music from THE NATURAL by Randy Newman - TUCKER: THE MAN AND HIS DREAM
Music from THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK by John Williams - HOOK
Music from BRAINSTORM by Jerry Goldsmith - DARKMAN
Music from THE GOONIES by Dave Grusin - INNERSPACE
There was a TV commercial for SPEED that used music from PREDATOR ("Get To The Chopper") really well.
And didn't the SPEED trailer use music from Zimmer's BLACK RAIN?
Here's a good resource. They don't catch everything but it's a good place to start... http://www.soundtrack.net/trailers/
