First Teaser Trailer for Laika's New Stop-Motion Movie 'The Boxtrolls'
"Families come in all shapes and sizes - even rectangles!" Dang, this is early! But it's important to get this teaser in front of Despicable Me 2 this week. Focus Features has debuted the first teaser trailer for Laika's The Boxtrolls, the latest stop-motion animation movie from the studio behind the films Coraline and ParaNorman. Playing off of the goofy Minions just a bit, this adapted story features a lovable community of "Boxtrolls", monsters who live underground that adopt an orphaned child, voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright, who isn't heard in this yet since the movie isn't out for over a year (late 2014). Give it a quick look!
Here's the first teaser trailer for Laika's The Boxtrolls, in high def from Apple:
The new 3D stop-motion 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.
Laika's The Boxtrolls is being co-directed by Anthony Stacchi (Open Season) and Graham Annable, adapted from Alan Snow's novel. Focus Features is releasing the film in theaters September 26th, 2014 next year.
