Over his 42-year career, Arnold Schwarzenegger has appeared in many trailers for many films. The perfect way of seeing how he’s changed over the decades, here are all of them in a row, from Hercules In New York (1969) to the upcoming The Last Stand (2013), complete with withering comments and pub-fodder trivia, just the way you like it…

Hercules In New York (1969)

Director: Arthur Allan Seidelman

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arnold Stang, James Karen, Ernest Graves, Tony Carroll

Film in a sentence: Hercules, son of Zeus, is sent down on a beam of light to the world of men, where he becomes a professional wrestler and is socially awkward near pretty girls.

Best bit in the trailer: A 22 year old Arnold speaking with a posh acting school American accent: “I’m tired of the same old faces, the same old things, this bizarre voice.”

Arnold fact: On its original release, Arnie was credited as “Arnold Strong” to play off his Mr. Universe fame and the name of his co-star, Arnold Stang.

4 Elfman at the end
In reference to you talking about the "Batman and Robin" trailer, that's Elliot Goldenthal's revamped Batman theme that plays throughout the bulk of the trailer. For some reason, they do toss in Elfman's much superior version at the end which, as you said, gets ruined by that odd "whooshing" sound. Not sure if you meant just that bit or thought that Elfman did the score for the whole film? More
