Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Yahoo has debut the new trailer for the stunning new stop-motion film from Laika Studios, THE BOXTROLLS. The studio behind some of the most innovative and magical animated films in recent years (CORALINE, PARANORMAN) is back with their third feature film, and September simply cannot get here fast enough.
LAIKA’s third film is The Boxtrolls, based on Alan Snow’s bestselling novel Here Be Monsters. Introducing audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, these soft-boiled detectives uncover the hidden connections in Eggs’ past and devise a daring plan to save his unique family.
Seriously - I can't wait. I enjoyed PARANORMAN more than I have any other animated film in a long LONG time, and I can't wait to see what Laika's team delivers in this new film. THE BOXTROLLS opens on September 26th.
What do you guys think?
