You’re Not Going Crazy, Every Movie Trailer Is Using This Same Goddamn Sound Effect
You’re not going crazy. You aren’t simply imagining that every movie trailer of the past 12 months sounds/looks the same. These jabronis from Hollywierd have lost all originality, and they’ve gotten it in their heads that the key to success is pounding the public with the same bass sound over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Seriously, enough is enough.
To prove that Hollywood’s completely stopped trying someone over at CinemaRaven put together this supercut. Here we get to see every recent movie trailer that’s employed this same BWOOOM BWOOOM BWOOOM BWOOOM bass sound to build suspense.
I don’t think it’s unfair to blame director Christopher Nolan for this BWOOOM BWOOOM epidemic because he’s the one who popularized it with The Dark Knight trilogy and then he did it again with Inception. Only with the latter he pumped that fucking sound down our throats for the ENTIRE goddamn film. And here we are, years later, stuck with this sound.
