    It’s pretty likely that the music in the trailer is totally unrelated to the film’s score. One must assume so because it’s cheap, pulpy and awful — it can’t possibly have been approved by Malick. It is, of course, routine practice for marketing hacks at studios to throw together trailers that violate the underlying aesthetic standards.
