Classic Trailers: Con Air (1997)

This is arguably my favourite trailer of all time to one of my favourite movies too; I think a lot of people didn’t actually get this movie and realise that it was in fact taking the piss.

It’s tongue is firmly planted in cheek and is literally hilarious in places and yes it IS deliberate.

I remember the first time I saw this trailer the one thing that stood out was the music; Trevor Rabin’s guitar theme tune is one of the all time greats.

So buckle up and take a journey back to 1997 and enjoy the trailer to Con Air.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
