    Those with Rush Hour 2 or the FOTR dvd will pwerhaps know what i'm on about. It's kind of similar to Oh Fortuna by Carl Orff, (you know, the old spice ad). The music from the trailer isn't on the soundtrack, anyone know what it's called??

    Any help would be ace!

    I think you mean the music that is based on "Lux Aeterna", the piece by Clint Mansell / Kronos Quartet which was also the main theme for Requiem For A Dream.

    The FOTR trailer features a remixed orchestral version of it - not sure what this version is called though.

    That was on the final Two Towers trailer that came out well after the DVD release of FOTR. Not the same piece of music according to Westy's post. It was specially re-recorded for the TTT trailer though - the editor had fallen in love with the score from Requiem so he cut the trailer with the same score going round in his head, New Line/Jackson then decided to re-record the music as a full-on classical piece and use it for the trailer.

    I've never actually seen the tailer for FOTR as I've not had the 2 disc set, so I can't help on that one:blush:

    Hey crackin stuff!

    Dug out my spare copy of Rush Hour 2 and watched the FOTR trailers again. That gothic chorus at the end of the final trailer just adds so much impact to the images - amazing!

    Thanks for that :smashin:
