Australian network airs promo that could be easily mistaken for action movie trailer

Wait, is this a movie trailer or news promo?

Australia’s 9 News Sydney has begun airing an over-the-top new promo that could easily rival a Roland Emmerich movie trailer.

The promo even starts out with the line “In the greatest city on Earth…” — which could have easily been ripped from the pages of a movie trailer script.

The promo includes a hard-hitting soundtrack that includes a rather intense voiceover completed with slick visual effects.
