In The Hall Of The STOP IT!

Attention filmmakers: I know it seems like it was made for the job, but please, PLEASE stop using In The Hall Of The Mountain King in your movie trailers.

Latest offender: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (trailer here). It was clever for ten minutes in 2007, and now it's time to let it go the way of the entirely beaten to death Requiem For A Dream song.

Come up with something new, for fuck's sake.

[Edit: Mad credit to David Fincher and Trent Reznor for using it mid-film in the henley sequence of The Social Network.  You're doing it right.]
