Check this out:
The trailer for The Dark Knight, which comes out about as close to the 19th anniversary of the 1989 Batman Movie, which also featured the Joker as its main antagonist, as possible is an almost shot for shot reproduction of the trailer for the 1989 version.

So, is it lazyness? An inside joke? An Homage? Or is it just that both trailers we developed using the same formulaic movie trailer conventions that have to mismarketed movies for the last 30 years?

You be the judge:

I think that it just proves what the film individual that I work with is always saying- we have run out of good ideas and therefore are forced to replicate the good ideas of the past. confused
