The Boxtrolls — International Trailer


added: Tue, Mar 18th '14

After a string of fun, tantalizing teasers, there's now a full-length international trailer for the 3D stop-motion pic "The Boxtrolls," and it shows exactly what these mysterious creatures are ("shy little fellows" who live under the street) and what they're not ("Brave" and "Pretty").

Directed by storyboard artist/animator Graham Annable and animator/effects artist Anthony Stacchi, "The Boxtrolls" comes from the same stop-motion company that brought us "Coraline" and "ParaNorman." Which basically means you can expect the upcoming film to carry Laika Studio's typical brand of harmless whimsy, and macabre imagery -- it will be both spooky and endearing.

Featuring the voices of Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, and Ben Kingsley, "The Boxtrolls" starts unpacking on September 26.

The new 3D animated feature from Laika Studios tells the tale of the Boxtrolls, monsters who live underneath the charming streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising as one of their own an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture aboveground to save them, where he teams with an adventurous young girl to save not only the Boxtrolls but the soul of Cheesebridge.
