Benjamin Button meets Arcade Fire

I’ve often thought it would be a fun job to pick the music played in movie trailers. Using the right song can add so much to a trailer, perfectly conveying the mood and themes of the film in question in a short amount of time.

Case in point: the use of Arcade Fire’s “My Body Is a Cage” — one of the best tracks from last year’s Neon Bible — in this new teaser for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
