We're barely into March, but we're ready to declare that The Boxtrolls has the best trailer campaign of the year. It doesn't matter what else hits in 2014, nothing is going to top the way Laika and Focus Features keep pulling our heartstrings by putting together the best combo of imagery and music since Where the Wild Things Are started making people weep.
The new trailer for the stop-motion animated film about a young child who befriends a species of trolls that live in the garbage that litters her city isn't actually the best one yet (that honor belongs to the stunning second trailer, which cherished the animation process), but it does continue the delightful trend.
And if you're wondering what the song is, it's a cover of "(You're So Square) Baby, I Don't Care" by Cee Lo Green.
The Boxtrolls hits theaters on September 26, 2014.
And here's that incredible second trailer, in case you missed it before.
