Hey, check out this great blog post Frank Lehman has published in Musicology Now, entitled "Trailers, Tonality, and the Force of Nostalgia"
Frank gives an astute nutshell characterization of "trailer-ese"-- the musical idiolect employed in movie trailers. And his discussion of the forthcoming Star Wars Episode VII will cause giddiness in the hearts of Star Wars fans.
Bonus points: see if you can spot the sentence that sounds like it should have been read aloud by Don LaFontaine (the iconic and ubiquitous voice of movie trailers lo these many decades)!
