Puny 58MB trailer, huh? Hah, I have the 98MB one! :) It's friggin huge 
(1000x540)! Actually, my CPU (800 MHz Duron) can't even play it without 
dropping some frames, so I used mencoder to re-encode it with MPEG-4 
video instead of Sorensen Video 3, which allows it to play nice and 
smooth, with negligible quality loss.

I also could not get sound out of the trailer when I first tried to play 
it. It turned out that it has AAC audio (standard MPEG-4), so I built 
faad, then rebuilt MPlayer (I use Gentoo, so building is mostly 
automated). I'm not certain that's the codec you need, though.
