Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? Movie Preview Circle Jerk

I just wish I could find the inspiration for this post online.  Believe it or not, I saw a trailer on TV for Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar that ripped off the Inception sound.  (I recorded it off TV – unfortunately it’s not as clear as I hoped.  Click here to hear.)  If you don’t know the infamous BRMMMM, click here.

It’s already been ripped off in this past summer’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon and next summer’s The Avengers:

This has happened once before with the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre using the flash bulb sound from the original trailer, and then it popped up everywhere (I just can’t remember where, for the life of me):

Previews are so terrible today, a woman is suing the advertisers of Ryan Gosling’s Drive for being misleading.  I was under the impression it was a cool, 80’s throwback movie based upon its neon logo, until I saw this TV spot:

Unbeatable?  Unstoppable?  Unkillable?

I started thinking he could be some supernatural driver out of the 50’s!  (The lawsuit states the woman thought it was going to be like The Fast and the Furious… my version is better.)

And how about this preview for James McTeigue’s follow-up to V for VendettaThe RaVen (the capital V is in the preview just to remind you):

Anyone else think the inspector is the murderer?
