The ‘BRRAAAWWRWRRMRMRMMM’ Effect

The recent release of the Prometheus teaser trailer reminded me of how many teasers that were strikingly similar to the Inception trailer (from way back in 2009). Let’s call it the “BRRRRAAAAAWWRWRRRMRMRMMMMM" effect. Here are a few previews that sonically identified with Inception in 2011… 

(Side note: Add this trend to the ‘Out’ #List2012.)
