Yeah, I know, the trailer =/= the movie, but it's supposed to sell us on how exciting the movie will be. On that count MOS's trailers have failed.
I wasn't so fond of the first one just because I found the LotR music so recognizable. The second one was pretty somber initially but once the music really picks up and he flies I get shivers. I've watched it about 56,000 times.

The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back."
