Hal Douglas ist im Alter von 89 Jahren gestorben. Der Mann war neben Don „The Voive of God“ LaFontaine, der vor sechs Jahren verstarb, die andere Legende unter den Trailer-Sprechern und Ihr habt seine Stimme garantiert schon ein paar hundert mal gehört, hier ein Demo-Reel. „In a World“ no more. R.I.P.

Hal Douglas, a voice-over artist who narrated thousands of movie trailers in a gravelly baritone heard by “audiences everywhere,” as he might have put it, “thrilled by images never before seen ... until now!,” died on Friday at his home in Lovettsville, Va. He was 89. […]

His dramatic range, from Olympian-thunderous to comic-goofy, suited him for trailers for movies as diverse as “Philadelphia,” “Forrest Gump,” “Coneheads,” “Meet the Parents” and “Lethal Weapon.” (“Under 17 not admitted without a parent.”)
