I’ve been covering THE BOXTROLLS for a bit here on THE ROCK FATHER, and on September 26, Focus Features will unleash it – the latest film from Laika Entertainment, the folks behind CORALINE and PARANORMAN. Based on the book, HERE BE MONSTERS! by Alan Snow, THE BOXTROLLS features a voice cast that includes Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan. The official theatrical trailer just arrived courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, and you can check it out below…
About THE BOXTROLLS:
A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces 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 Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
