Metallica and Guns N’ Roses Prominently Featured in New Trailers for The Punisher and Jumanji
If I told you that there’s a new trailer for a Punisher television series featuring the music of Metallica and a new trailer for the new Jumanji movie featuring the music Guns N’ Roses, you could be forgiven for thinking you had somehow gone back in time to the early ’90s. No need to go looking for Doc Brown: it’s still 2017. This is just one of those things.
The less surprising of the two inclusions is Guns N’ Roses, both because of their mainstream status and the fact that the movie is called Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. You’ll never guess which GN’R song they decided to use in the ad campaign.
Meanwhile, the new trailer for Netflix’s upcoming The Punisher series, which spun out of the second season of Daredevil, includes Metallica’s “One.” Although it’s entirely possible they picked this particular ‘Tallica tune just because it rocks, I suspect the song’s lyrical themes had something to do with the decision as well. After all, Frank Castle, The Punisher himself, is an ex-solider.
So that happened.
