Frequently Used Trailer Cues

After the crazy huge success of "Inception" and it's "brrrrrr....brrrrrrr!!!" trailer soundtrack (entitled Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey), everytime someone at work loads up a trailer for the "up and coming blockbuster hollywood movie", it's usually edited to similar "brrrrr.........brrrrrrrr!!!" thematic cues. And someone usually mentions "oh they're using the BRRR BRRR Inception song!"

Trailers in the past went through phases of popular cues as well. For instance, Clint Mansell's "Requiem for a Dream" theme and James Horners "Bishop's Countdown" from "Aliens".

So after some quick googling, I came across many links about "frequently used trailer cues" like this one >

Here are a few of my favourite scores that have ended up on trailers, or just amazing pieces of music compositions:

James Horner's "Bishop's Countdown" from "Aliens"

Clint Mansell's "Death is the Road to Awe" from "The Fountain"

John Murphy's "Kaneda's Death (Part 2)" from "Sunshine"

Mark Mancina's "Speed" theme
