Proof That the “Inception Sound” is Taking Over Movie Trailers


Everyone likes to poke fun at the fact that a lot of movie trailers have now taken the BWAAAAAAAR sound from the original Inception trailer and used it for themselves. But I did not realize that this style went this far or this deep in the action movie genre.

The video above shows almost every case of a movie since Inception where this has taken place, and man there are a lot of them. I would only fault them for including Tron Legacy, because it doesn’t seem to qualify. But all the rest? Absolutely, and I don’t think we’ve seen the end of the trend yet either.

What happened to actual….music in trailers? The air horn on an aircraft carrier is not music.
