Teddy and Alex discuss the new Inception trailer as well as the second Inception poster that was revealed via the viral marketing game, Mind Crime. The two also respond to questions and comments from the live-chat.

The trailer music could very well be not-indicative of the actual score, but I wouldn't cite the reasons you did.
I really have liked the score in the teasers, so I hope they are used in the film.
But had Nolan met with Zimmer before December to do recordings? Cues heard in this new teaser go back to the ones used in the first teaser.
I love the music in this trailer. And as Teddy basically says, you have to imagine that Hans Zimmer has the basics of a theme down for this film. Listening to the trailer music from TDK's first full trailer that debuted in front of I Am Legend on December 14, 2007 proves that. That was at T-minus 7 months. We're at T-minus 6 months with Inception.
I also like seeing Hans Zimmer do something that doesn't sound like Pirates of the Caribbean.

The Dark Knight trailers used music from the Batman Begins score didn't they? The re-used cues from the Inception teaser in this new trailer may mean that the music was made for the trailer, not the film. But I really like it!

They used music from released and unreleased parts of Batman Begins and/or it's demo suites. In either case, they're themes that were written 3 years in advance, so not quite the same case as Inception.
