The Best Uses of Song (so far) in the Trailers of 2014

4. Boyhood: Family of the Year’s “Hero”

This song plays into Linklater’s film in so many different ways. Shot over the course of 12 years using the same actors and telling the story of a boy growing up, Boyhood could be a difficult film to condense into one trailer, yet paired with such a gentle song, one with touching lyrics like “let me go … I don’t want to be your hero” is enough to bring a theater audience to tears.
