Internet Distribution Question

Hi,
I work for a company that is producing an ad for a non-profit organization.  The organization wants to distribute it on the internet only and no one will be selling it.
The catch is that we want to use a short audio only excerpt from a Hollywood movie in the form of a wav file.
Is this legal?  
Hopefully, I'm not being too naive here.
 
thanks

In all likelihood, your intended use would constitute copyright infringement.  Fair use might protect you, but I wouldn't hang my hat on that.
