The Boxtrolls

The last teaser trailer for Laika's new stop-motion animated film The Boxtrolls looked behind the scenes at the painstaking, intricate animation process. Now a new teaser trailer has emerged that still doesn't give us much in the vein of story, but features a catchy new version of an old tune for the film. That's Cee Lo Green's cover of  "(You're So Square) Baby, I Don't Care," previously sang by the likes of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly, driving this whole teaser trailer with more fantastic animation. This time we get to see more of the human characters, but we're still waiting for a full trailer with some story details. Watch below!

Here's the new teaser trailer for Laika's The Boxtrolls, originally from Yahoo:

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.
