Trailer theme

Does anyone know the source of the generic "action" music in the new Star Trek trailer? It is reminiscent of, although not the same as, the music which plays in Heavy Metal when the Tarachian stronghold is invaded.

Re: Trailer theme

Brian Tyler's score for the Sci-Fi miniseries Children of Dune. Bits of that score have been used in a lot of movie trailers including Trek's spiritual cousin, Master and Commander: Far Side of the World.

Re: Trailer theme

It is a custom score derived from Brian Tyler's Children of Dune soundtrack from a company called "Two Steps From Hell" that specializes in music for trailers and other licensing.

The specific score is called "Down With The Enterprise" from the album "Legend". You can listen to the entire track here starting at 2:20:

Re: Trailer theme

Once we get a trailer with more dialogue, I wouldn't mind seeing a mashup with Molossus, the Batman Begins/Dark Knight trailer song, among several other non-comic book movies.

And doesn't the song from Children of Dune have such a fitting title for a Star Trek trailer? Magnificent

Actually, the arrangement used in this trailer was retitled "Down with the canonistas."
