Watch: English Dubbed Trailer for Stop-Motion Film 'Toys in the Attic'
Yes, we've seen toys come to life from Disney and Pixar in the computer animated franchise Toy Story. But seeing them come to life in stop motion animation is still impressive in the trailer for Toys in the Attic, the United States release of the Czech film In the Attic: Who Has a Birthday Today? The Hanover House film gets a limited release in September complete with an English dubbed audio track that actually features Toy Story franchise talent Joan Cusack along with Forest Whitaker, Cary Elwes and Vivian Schilling. This looks pretty damn cool, and feels like a fresh departure from studio animated films. Watch!
The trailer for Vivian Schilling and Jiří Barta's the English dubbed Toys in the Attic from E! Online:
Following the symbolism of the Cold War era, the world of the attic is divided into the land of happy toys in the West and the land of evil in the East. The despotic Head of State rules over the evil empire of the East with a band of sinister minions, insects and rotted vegetables. When the lovely Buttercup (Vivian Schilling) is kidnapped and held prisoner by The Head, it is up to her friends – a teddy bear (Forest Whitaker), a mechanical mouse (Joan Cusack) and marionette puppet (Cary Elwes) – to cross the international boundary and attempt their daring rescue. Toys in the Attic is directed Jiří Barta from a script he wrote himself with Edgar Dutka, but Schilling directed and wrote the English adaptation hitting theaters September 7th.
