Commando (1985)

Director: Mark L. Lester

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rae Dawn Chong, Vernon Wells

Film in a sentence: Retired Delta Force badass takes time out from carrying massive trees and petting deer to take down a South American dictator and rescue his kidnapped daughter, Chenny. Sorry, Jenny.

Best bit in the trailer: “I lied.”

Arnold fact: Gene Simmons, Kiss’s lead tongue-waggling monochrome clown, was originally offered the Matrix role, as was Nick Nolte, for whom the script was recrafted to make him an out of condition Israeli Mossad agent. Needless to say, that all went out the window once Arnie was on board.

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
