Watch: Laika's 'Boxtrolls' Lurk Under Cheesebridge in New UK Trailer
So far, Focus Features and Laika have crafted some great teaser trailers for their forthcoming stop-motion animated feature The Boxtrolls. The first teaser just showed off some of the title creatures as they stumbled upon a human child, the second went behind the scenes showing off the models and sets, and the third just used some upbeat music without any dialogue or story explanation. Now a trailer from the United Kingdom finally gives us a glimpse into the tale being told about the creatures who live below the streets of Cheesebridge. All the townspeople are scared of the legend, but they're just not scary at all. Watch below!
Here's the new UK trailer for Laika's The Boxtrolls from MSN UK:
The Boxtrolls are monsters who live below the streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. Or so the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs as one of their own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture aboveground and team with an adventurous young girl to save them. Graham Annable (story artist on ParaNorman) and Anthony Stacchi (co-director of Open Season) directs the film which Focus Features releases on September 26th this fall.
