    It's called THX-Grand. (slightly modified though)

    Starts off with a sparkly sound, then a red shimmery picture. Within the red are the words "Best Picture. Best Sound" followed by "The Following is a THX Certified Feature"
    Then red turns to blue, and it turns solid when the THX logo shows up on it.

    I remember that THX trailer from the opening weekend of Die Hard 2. LONG time ago. All I really remembered about it was the red "cloudy" stuff. It was cool though.

    If I'm not mistaken that's one of their earliest THX trailers showing off 5.1 sound. I just haven't seen it in a really long time... (i could be wrong)

    Sounds like a butchered version of the original THX "Grand" trailer. They did this on the Twister DVD also with the altered THX "Cimmaron" trailer. Thumbs down.

    Sorry to those of you who like it. (My girlfriend loves it too.), but I HATE that cow trailer. Oh, it's kind of cute, but not very impressive. I was very disappointed when I saw THAT in front of Episode II. I liked the one I saw in front of the SW Special Editions years ago. It was like you were on a journey to hell. It was great.

    Hello all. This now gives me an excuse to finally buy Speed on DVD. The Grand trailer is pretty cool, but I still love Cimarron. Laserdiscs had a short version of it, but I would love to see the long version on DVD. Heck, whatever happened to Dolby trailers?!

    All the THX trailers have been new spins on the same thing. If this is a butchering, the same could be said of the Simpson's trailer.

    Sorry Im not familiar with all the names of the trailers, but theres a THX trailer I saw in front of Road to Perdition where the THX logo "breaks" and some repairman comes to fix it. Its kinda long, but cute. Is that one on any DVD?

    It's called the THX Tex trailer and you can find it on the Toy Story DVD.

    Now that THX is an independent company and not a subsidiary of Lucasfilm, I imagine we'll be seeing some new trailers with the references to Lucasfilm found on previous trailers removed.
