Conan The Destroyer (1984)

Director: Richard Fleischer

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Grace Jones, Olivia d'Abo, Sarah Douglas

Film in a sentence: A young, incredibly ripped sword-swinger seeks to resurrect his ex-girlfriend by fetching a magic horn and giving it to a treacherous Queen (Douglas).

Best bit in the trailer: Aside from “But his biggest triumph… was at the box office”, it has to be the look on Arnie’s lemon-sucking face as he swings his sword about near the end.

Arnold fact: The guy inside the resurrected massive-horned-fish-thing that slaps Arnie about the chops? That’s Andre The Giant in a ridiculous rubber suit. To see a jaw-dropping still of Wilt Chamberlain, Arnie and Andre, click this way.

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
