and...10 more great uses of songs in movie trailers

By Sati. Wednesday, May 9, 2018 , ,
And one more time, here are 10 more awesome uses of songs in teasers and trailers (part 1part 2). This time it's only movies. We'll probably gonna have these posts every once in a while since practically all I listen to are either soundtracks or trailer songs and clearly there is no shortage of awesome Imagine Dragons songs they can use flawlessly to market a movie.


30. Gone Girl (She by Richard Butler)



29. Ghost in the Shell (Enjoy the Silence by KI Theory)



28. Rampage (Bullet with Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins)



27. Justice League (Come Together by Gary Clark Jr. & Junkie XL)



26. The Expendables (Diamond Eyes by Shinedown)



25. The Departed (Comfortably Numb by Roger Waters (Feat. Van Morrison & The Band))



24. Thor: Ragnarok (Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin)



23. Mission: Impossible - Fallout (Friction by Imagine Dragons)



22. Wonder Woman (Warriors by Imagine Dragons)



21. Logan (Way Down We Go by Kaleo)

    1. That was so great. The second scene it was used in was the standout of the movie

  2. Shinedown? Ugh.... those assholes fucking suck! They're the reason rock music is almost dead in America. Imagine Dragons suck too.

    Yes to Gone Girl and Thor: Ragnarok.

    1. Yes, I'm sure one band is the reason 'rock music is almost dead in America' /s

  3. Awesome list! Music can make or break a trailer. Imagine Dragons was perfect for the new Mission Impossible. :)

    1. Thank you! I really fear the next trailer. Cavill in this is an actual health hazard

  4. The Immigrant Song! I still can't believe I hated how that sounded at first. Now I want it to play every time Thor comes on screen.

    1. I'm pretty sure if they used that song in THAT moment in IW a lot of people in the audience would shit themselves with delight

  5. Great reminder! Out of this list, enjoy the silence stuck the most with me (but i just reeeeeally like that song). Keep em coming!

    1. The cover isn't the greatest but the song choice is really brilliant

  7. Totally in the minority here, but I dig the Hell outta how they used that Pumpkins song in the Rampage trailer. That shit is incredible - great pick.

    It also might be worrisome how much I've grown to love that f--king Mission:Impossible trailer. Give the bastard that cobbled that thing together a raise immediately. I didn't even bother with the last one (despite your recommendation...!), but I'm all in for Fallout.

    More of this, please.

    1. Why in minority? Do people hate on that? That was a great use of that song!

      Dude just watch Rogue Nation

  8. I woulda figured you'd already included Logan in a post such as this. :P

    Nice pick with Justice League. The movie was shit, but the trailers and their music choices were spot on.

    1. Logan was number 1 in the very first one :)

      That was such a great cover and the trailer was decent then they just fucked it up beyond comprehension

  9. GREAT picks. Love the music choices in the trailers for The Departed, Fallout, and Ragnarok in particular.

    1. I wonder if new Fallout trailer tomorrow beats this one cause it is gonna be difficult

  10. The She cover from Gone Girl trailer definitely puts a new and darker spin on that romantic love song. I'll take a look at the rest later, thanks for sharing!
