The Holy Triumvirate of Dramatic Movie Trailer Music:
—O Fortuna (Carmina Burana), by Carl Orff
—Mars, Bringer of War (The Planets), by Gustav Holst, and
—Prologue/Anvil of Crom (Conan the Barbarian Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), by Basil Poledouris.
Without those three pieces, 80% of all trailers for martial movies would be deprived of a high-adrenaline musical foundation.
