In a world...

The legendary voice of movie trailers, Don LaFontaine passed away on Monday. If you click on his name, you can hear bits of his trailers on his website. In his honor, I thought I'd post a couple of these YouTube clips featuring him.





Don't know about you, but watching the previews has always been one of my favorite parts of seeing a movie. I will miss hearing his voice. That's for sure.

Movie trailers will be very different now. I hate that he passed.

I hope you're having an enjoyable Friday.

He was funny in the Geico commercial. That was the first time I ever seen his face.

He really was an incredible announcer for movie trailers. He'll be missed.
