Following the release of the Harold Lloyd-inspired new poster for 'Hugo,' Paramount has unfurled a brand-new trailer for the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, which removes one of the most controversial aspects of the initial marketing campaign: the 30 Seconds to Mars song "Kings & Queens." What has that catchy -- albeit time period inappropriate selection -- been replaced with on the trailer soundtrack? Hint: it's a stock music cue that you heard in a trailer for one of 2010's Best Picture nominees.
It's from 'The Fighter'! The song is actually called "Breath and Life" by the stock music company Audiomachine, which specializes in trailer music. (Audiomachine has been featured in trailers for 'Harry Potter,' 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' 'Warrior,' 'Captain America' and many, many more.)
'Hugo,' which features original music from Howard Shore, and stars Ben Kingsley, Chloe Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Michael Stuhlbarg and Asa Butterfield as the titular Hugo, arrives in theaters on Nov. 23. As this trailer suggests, it's not as much of a kids' movie as the earlier marketing indicated.
