First off, the music from Pearl Harbor trailer 3 uses the music at the beginning from Greame Revells The Crow:City Of Angels, and then the actual music from Zimmer's Pearl Harbor. Other TV trailers use The Crow orginal, also composed by Revell, track 8.
Can't wait to see the movie and hear the rest of the score.
