To get a listing of the trailer/teaser music available in our database, you can select to browse by film title:
TRAILER MUSIC LIST – To browse the titles of the films select the letter or number of which the title begins with.
The following list is a list of the music used in some trailers for motion pictures, based on the orignal trailer list developed by IMDb’s Michel Hafner. You can help completing this list by mailing additions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep in mind, if it’s not listed here on the site already, it’s probably because we don’t know about it! So DO NOT email us questions about what music was used in what trailer. SUCH INQUIRIES WILL BE DELETED!!
If trailers / teasers are for TV please specify. Please mail us additions only if you are positive. The titles are the same as the ones used in the Internet Movie Database which you can check for further information about the movies.
– THEATRICAL TRAILER : the official theatrical piece, usually cut from the first (very long) cut of the picture or sometimes (if there is no first cut yet) from dailies (all the shot footage, including all the different takes and angles), maximum length of a trailer is two and a half minutes.
– TEASER TRAILER : A first, short theatrical preview piece (usually not longer than a minute and a half), cut from a few selected takes and scenes while the picture is still being shot.
– TV SPOTS : Are 15, 30 and (for a few very “big-budgeted” projects usually for a special event such as the Super Bowl) 60 seconds in length. They usually don’t have much to do with the theatrical trailer and are produced completely seperate from the theatrical campaign. They are very “focus group specific” and, in most cases, uses music different from the theatrical trailer.
– INTERNATIONAL RELEASE : Sometimes trailers are altered for a specific locality or because of rights issues in a certain region, those special cases appear under this category.
– RE-ISSUE : Music that has appeared on re-issues of certain features when re-released theatrically
– HOME VIDEO TRAILER: A seperately produced trailer used to advertise new home video releases or movies coming soon or in theaters right now. They are produced by the home video departments the studios and usually have a much smaller budget than the theatrical trailers.
– DVD TRAILER : These trailers are usually the same as the regular theatrical trailer, but because of the deluxe format of DVD, may actually contain alternate and rejected trailers for any specific promotional campaign. Sometimes TV spots are included and fall under the same circumstances.
– INTERNET TRAILER : These trailers are usually created exclusively for the internet, and might contain music not used in the theatrical release versions.
– OTHER : For some reason some of these bits of music appear on an odd bit of film, and are so categorized
