Epic Trailer Songs

Have you noticed how many movie trailers lately feature classic songs (from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s) remastered in some kind of “Epic” mode? Take a look:

Interestingly, some of these movies (with some exceptions, of course, for example “Logan”, or “Ready Player One”) had abysmal reviews and rating. In those cases, the trailer was the best part of the movie. Sad yet interesting trend.
