Gladiator Music Used in Trailer   Sunday, April 11, 2004 (2:10 p.m.) 

Im sure that, when I watched the trailer for 'Alamo', a large portion of the background music was from 'Gladiator' soundtrack, at the beginning of the track: 'The Battle'. Am I wrong by thinking that this film had a composer to think of it's own ORIGINAL music?

Original score is pretty rarely used in trailers. It happens, but usually trailers use bits from other scores or other music.

Just to expand a little on that point, this is usually because the original score for the film is not complete at the time the trailer is produced. Especially in the case of teaser-trailers, which are often put out months before the actual film is completed, and often before a composer has even started to work on his/her original music.
