From stop-motion animation specialists Laika, who brought us Coraline and last year's ParaNorman, comes the first trailer for their latest feature The Boxtrolls. Ben Kingsley and Toni Collette lead the voice cast for this 3D animated adventure, based on Alan Snow's novel, which follows a group of monsters who live underneath the idyllic town of Cheesebridge. While the townsfolk think they come out at night to steal their beloved children and cheese, they aren't actually dangerous at all, trying to raise an orphaned human named Eggs. In addition, we have the first poster for Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable's upcoming feature, debuting in theaters September 27, 2014.
The new 3D 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 above ground to save them, where he teams with an adventurous young girl to save not only The Boxtrolls but the soul of Cheesebridge.
