The Trailer Voiceover Guy Is Dead

Well shit, this sucks. Don LaFontaine, better known as “The movie trailer voiceover guy”, passed away on Monday as a result of complications from Pneumothorax (a collapsed lung). LaFontaine’s voice is probably one of the most recognized in the world, as he has provided narration for pretty much every movie trailer churned out over the past 20 years. This is disconcerting for me on two levels: First, because I actually had a “spontaneous pneumothorax” once, and second, I’ll never get to hear ol’ Don utter the famous “In a world…” line ever again. A sad day indeed.
