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.

    They should rename this "The Nightmare before Toy Story".

    looks like a fun watch..........btw - joan cusak should be thankful that john made the name relevant - or she'd never get this kind of work.
    • Eh, they were both rising stars at the same time. John just took off a little sooner and has had more leading roles. She's very talented in her own right, but actresses at her age and who aren't gorgeous models just don't get the same kind of work.

        ethan, you are SO right about some actresses getting work due to many bad actresses end up in movies due to the way they look. although, there are those older women who are so talented they still get whatever work they want - julia roberts, cate blanchett, helen mirren to name a few. i just don't think JC is that kind of talent.

    creepy style but cool non the less

    Wow, this would have been a great movie in 1986. Pass.
  • BSL
    Sounds like they recorded the voiceovers in someone's kitchen. Hopefully they can improve the sound quality before they release it.

    Once again a fairy tale, even though modern/creepy/inventive, where ugly = eveil and pretty = good.
