Movie Trailers: What's That Song?

Posted on

Lovelace What drove Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace off the deep end? Maybe it was all that wika-waka porn funk she had to put up with. If only Alice Smith’s soulful ”She” had been around circa ’72. Find The Song On Smith’s 2013 album, She.

Delivery Man Vince Vaughn donates enough sperm to create 533 children, while the only thing American Authors contribute is the strummy anthem ”Best Day of My Life.” Next time, guys. Find The Song On iTunes.

Inside Llewyn Davis The Coen brothers’ take on the 1960s New York folk scene — a.k.a. The Not-Quite-Bob-Dylan Story — keeps it in the family, with costar Carey Mulligan’s husband, Marcus Mumford, covering ”Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song).” Find The Song On iTunes.

Last Vegas Studly seniors Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, and Robert De Niro invite LMFAO survivor Redfoo to ”Bring Out the Bottles” — of Centrum Silver? Ba-dump-bump! — for Douglas’ Sin City bachelor party. Find The Song On iTunes.

Thanks For Sharing Sex addiction: Is there a GOOP newsletter for that? Nope, just a Gwyneth Paltrow-Mark Ruffalo dramedy about it, set to Imagine Dragons’ ”Radioactive.” Find The Song On 2012’s Night Visions.

Ride Along Perhaps it was too meta to have veteran cop Ice Cube give Kevin Hart a Training Day-style hazing to N.W.A’s ”F — tha Police,” which Cube actually rapped on. Instead, they go with KRS-One’s ”Sound of da Police.” Find The Song On 1993’s Return of the Boom Bap.

The Secret LIfe of Walter Mitty There’s barely any dialogue, so it’s hard to say who’s the star here: Ben Stiller, Of Monsters and Men’s ”Dirty Paws,” or Adam Scott’s beard. We’ll call it a three-way tie. Find The Song On 2011’s My Head Is an Animal.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Lily Collins pursues the beasties who took her mother with help from Radiohead’s ”All I Need.” Find The Song On 2007’s In Rainbows.

Afternoon Delight Affluent L.A. housewife Kathryn Hahn takes kittenish stripper Juno Temple under her wing as Branches’ ”Helicopter” promises emotional transformations (also: poolside pole-dancing lessons). Find The Song On iTunes.

Out of the Furnace Batman goes back-country blue-collar in this dark Christian Bale drama; Pearl Jam offer an unlikely ”Release” from the tension. Find The Song On 1991’s Ten.

About Time This Rachel McAdams time-travel romance uses Of Monsters and Men’s (those Icelandic troublemakers again!) ”Lakehouse,” which is also the name of a 2006 Sandra Bullock time-travel romance. Spooky. Find The Song On My Head Is an Animal.
