      I personally find it one of the worst Movies ads, each to their own I suppose.

      The first time I saw it I thought it was a program but I don't mind the Advert at all and as Simon says I haven't heard "Wandering Star" for years.

      Humbug to the lot of you, It must be that I am just too young to remember the original.

      So far the music from the movies the Sky Movies ads have used have both been on in the last couple of weeks, ITV have run Willy Wonka and Channel 5 showed paint your wagon last weekend.

      FACT: it took ages to record that song. The version used in the film was edited together almost a word at a time because Marvin was so drunk or hungover in the days when he recorded it.

      Re: New Sky Movies Ad

      what is the music on the another new sky movies ad? it's a classical piece of music, on the advert with Die Hard 4.0 (shows the bit where the car just nearly hits them but hits two other cars instead and has the bit where the car flys into the helicopter) and pirates of the caribbean: at worlds end ( has orlando bloom and kiera knightly kissing and some other bits) and theree's other films but i can't remember them...it's just such a great bit of music, and it's really hard to find...does anyone know what it is? pleeaase

      The classical music in the advert in question (Sky Movies) is

      Clair de Lune by Debussy....fantastic!...it's also at the end of Oceans 11 when they are all outside the Bellagio watching the water fountains...gives me goose bumps xx
