    Wow, you’ve really gone out on a limb there, Alcott. Kudos!

    For the years that this thing has been off/on, off/on, off/on, etc., I’ve kept thinking that it’s a bad idea to go back.

    But man. When that theme starts up as he gets THE hat- that feeling- that’s why movies are great.

    I point you to my journal and repeat the same sentiment

    Noooooooooooooooooo! (read: Do Not Want!)

    Sorry, looking forward to the movie. But they cut the trailer with music that sounds WAY too much like Brian Tyler’s one musical motif (used in, among others, I’m sure, Bubba Ho Tep, Children of Dune, Paparazzi, and Timeline). I’ve ranted about this guy before.

    Now back to my own journal to rant again.

      It sounds like Brian Tyler because it is.

      • bassfingers says:

        Had to be. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the Bubba Ho-tep soundtrack, and the theme he’s re-using all over the place IS a really strong musical motif, but I tend to get a bit pissed when who knows how many studios have paid him to re-write the same 4 chords. (Granted, with different orchestrations, rhythms, secondary themes, etc…)

        • Todd says:

          I doubt the studio paid him to re-write anything for this trailer — they probably just paid him a licensing fee and used the recording from Children of Dune. It’s a fairly common practice for trailers. Not to mention temp scores.

          I remember, a long time ago, being shocked while seeing a trailer for the sci-fi non-classic Enemy Mine. They were using Philip Glass’s theme from Mishima for the thing, and, being new to the business at the time, I couldn’t figure out why Glass had contributed his classy, triumphal music to this junky movie. Later I realized that the studio, lacking their own music, had just lifted Glass’s and paid the rights-holder a fee.

          Later in the 80s it was Peter Gabriel’s “Rhythm of the Heat” — Jesus, I heard that thing in every goddamn trailer.

          • bassfingers says:

            True. Philip Glass’s Anthem from Powaqqatsi used to show up a lot (and not just in The Truman Show, where it was actually used in-film…) And I remember Jean Michel Jarre being used quite a bit as well. (Think Equinoxe may have been used in the Willow trailer, IIRC…)

            Only mildly rankled. Moreso, just because I’ve got a beef with Tyler’s recycling in general, but I doubt many people would have recognized him.

            are you saying enemy mine wasn’t good?

    It looks fab, doesn’t it? 🙂

    I was never a huge Stars Wars fan as a kid. Indy was my hero 🙂 Cant wait for this. And its even got Ray Winstone in it! – “I’ve come to kill your Monstah!”

    How can this fail?

    one of my coffee shop regulars, a guy who believes the missouri mystery mound is a secret mason library and other such conspiracies, is convinced this one’s about aliens. he told me today, though, he was disappointed the trailer didn’t show any of that. i think he missed the “ROSWELL” lettering on the side of a crate somewhere in the middle of that trailer.

    • bassfingers says:

      You’re not cleared for that.

      Or, in more proper masonic form, it’s not really “I could tell you, but I’d have to kill you” so much as “I could tell you, but I’d have to be disemboweled as punishment for my transgression.” 🙂

      • igorxa says:

        he has actually told me he can’t go back to the mound or they’ll kill him. of course, a few minutes after he told me that the first time, he offered to take me up there anytime i wanted.

    Wait– I thought it was called Indian Jones and the Trail of the Chicago Seven.

    Or will that come out in 11 years?
