    I'm trying to download a collection of the coolest (modern) movie music, and it occurred to me that several of the best pieces were (at some point) used as trailer music. (If I had a nickel for every time I heard Silvestri's Goonies track or Horner's Aliens theme used in a trailer...)

    So there's your meager assignment. Just mention the trailer if you don't know the composer, and if it's movie music that was written for an earlier film, please let me know that too.

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure if this is really what you are looking for, but my favorite trailer music was the Pearl Harbor teaser trailer's use of The Thin Red Line theme. Unfortunately the music in the trailer was later changed to the actual Pearl Harbor score because of rights disputes.

    Other favorites of mine include K-19: The Widowmaker and Windtalkers, which use the Gladiator theme.
