For longer than I have been alive (33 years to be exact), Don LaFontaine has been a part of most people's movie going experience, yet they probably have no idea who he is. For the past 33 years, Don LaFontaine has been the voice of over 5000 movie trailers, most noticeably for the line "In a world where..."
He has been parodied by many people including Pablo Fransico:
And more recently himself:
While being one of the least visible people in Hollywood, he has stayed one of the most prominent and well known (whether you were aware of it or not).
So after 33 years of service to the movie industry, here's to you Don LaFontaine, the trailers will never be the same!
