A One-Man Trailer Machine Goes to the Great Theater in the Sky

One of the great voices of American movie trailers, Don LaFontaine, died on Monday at age 68 from a collapsed lung. His voice was featured in trailers for films such as The Terminator, Godfather II, Batman Returns, Cast Away, Fatal Attraction and Dr. Strangelove. Hit the jump to see a featurette with LaFontaine and four of his fellow voice-over colleagues, as well as a few of our favorite trailers from his long resume.

His deep voice became the standard for trailer voice-overs, and even had a bit part in The Simpsons Movie. Known for his famous phrase, "In a world," LaFontaine's voice was at once instantly recognizable and universally manly. In a world where movie trailers keep us all entertained throughout an otherwise hum-drum day, we salute you, Don.
