One YouTuber managed to show that a sound effect, commonly associated with a slow motion moment or guy diving ahead of an explosion, was present in almost all of the significant 2017 movie trailers. From Kong: Skull Island all the way to Despicable Me 3, the elongated, bass-heavy bwub has made its way into an astonishing number of spots.
Whether indicative of originality’s decline or just a pleasant coincidence, the commonality is quite interesting. Whoever invented this particular descending synth note truly struck gold. Or maybe, like Oppenheimer, he lived to see the tool he created turn evil—an evil that infected every corner of movie trailer-dom.
