It's Warner we're talking about, not a cheap studio, there would have been music if they wanted to. I don't know if it was Burton's or someone else's idea but it was quite bold of them to put out a trailer for superhero blockbuster without any music. Surely no studio would do that today, they play it so safe in marketing now it's really sad. And we can't say it didn't work given the Batmania and box office records that summer!

At the time, I was working as a projectionists at a theater that opened this. It was basically thrown together as a response to the "Beetlejuice as Batman...? You have got to be kidding me" backlash after Burton's casting announcement. I remember having "screenings" of the trailer for friends between the regular shows when it first was delivered (with management approval, of course... I spliced the trailer out of the core and looped it....)

When my wife and I started dating I was working as a projectionist and for a birthday present she bought several 35mm trailers including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Bros, Mortal Kombat and the 89 Batman. I remember doing that same thing before our theater converted to digital, it was so cool putting those on the big screen as I remember seeing them.
