He’s the man behind thousands of catchy movie trailers and television previews, and sadly Hal Douglas passed away on Friday (March7) at 89 years of age.

The much-beloved narrator succumbed to complications from pancreatic cancer but not before touching millions of people with his instantly-recognizable vocals.

Throughout his prolific career, Hal contributed his voice to promote films like “Philadelphia,” “Forrest Gump,” “Coneheads,” “Lethal Weapon” and “Meet the Parents.”

Tinseltown voice coach Marice Tobias told press, “When you go past superstar status, you reach icon status in this business, where people know you by one name only. That was Hal.”
