I've mentioned a couple times before how Beethoven's music seems especially suited to modern film. Here are a few movies (trailers, actually) which used a good helping of LvB...
Immortal Beloved Trailer (hmmm..who should we get to score this one?)
The Fall (2006) trailer (7th Symphony Allegretto AGAIN!)
In L'Âge d'Or (The Golden Age), a 1930 surrealist film directed by Luis Buñuel (written by Buñuel and Salvador Dalí) there are a couple scenes with Beethoven's music. This one uses the Eroica slow movement about at about 5:24.
Die Hard with a Vengeance (Ode to Joy)
(thanks to Paul from Super-Conductor for reminding me about Die Hard)
Not a trailer but a really cool video using NYC photography:
