Predator (1987)

Director: John McTiernan

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Kevin Peter Hall, Bill Duke

Film in a sentence: Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer and his elite team of ultra-manly goddamn sexual tyrannosauri get picked off one by one by a dreadlocked semi-invisible extra-terrestrial with a peculiar line in eyewear.

Best bit in the trailer: If you can choose between “Knock knock”, “Ain’t got time to bleed” and “If it bleeds, we can kill it”, then you’re a damn sight less argumentative than we are.

Arnold fact: Jean-Claude Van Damme was originally cast as The Predator, but quit when he realised he’d be spending the whole film unseen in a red lobster-like special effects suit. Redesigned for his replacement, Kevin Peter Hall, the outfit had a completely different look for the finished film.

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
