    Okay what gives? I just watched the new I Am Legend trailer and it is using one of the main songs from The Fountain.

    http://www.apple.com/trailers/wb/iamlegend/trailer2/large.html

    What gives? Is it just for the trailer? Is it the same composer? Is the producer the same?

    I remember the music being a very specific theme in The Fountain, so I can just see it being handed over easily...

    movies often recycle themes from other movies in their trailers. i don't know how often, but it happens. an example off the top of my head...the mulan trailer (the disney movie) used music from the movie dragonheart.

    EDIT: an interesting blog entry on entertainment weekly.

    They recycle the guys voice EVERY time - and you're confused about the sound track being reused? :)

    Common, as a country we're very wasteful - at least somebody started recycling.

    Yeah those people do that stuff all the time. I was mad when one trailer used 28 days/weeks later theme song or whatever. Can't remember what trailer used it.

    I didn't mean to be confusing. I just meant that if it was the same producer, production company, or composer it would make a little more sense. I see movies having the same shots, music, title font/animation, etc. all the time, but that is when it is usually the same person on two films e.g. Michael Bay.

    Thanks for this. I knew music got recycled, but I just never expected The Fountain's sound track to be regurgitated on to this. Now don't get me wrong, I am excited for I Am Legend, but The Fountain had all this symbolism and meaning to it and the music was specifically composed to represent and express Aronofsky's vision.

    But the article you included does prove a great point. Requiem for a dream is used once a year (I am in film school and it is once a quarter for the student films); ironic it is another Aronofsky film though.

    Perhaps the article has your answer?

    You wouldn't have guessed back in 1982 when I first knew him ;)

    Yes in my mind he is. His music is amazing because it has the rare effect of placing me right back in to the movie at the exact moments in time where his music was playing.

    I hope I can have him as my composer someday.
