Following the extended TV spot and final poster released last week, Focus Features has debuted a new motion poster for The Boxtrolls, which shows how these unique creatures light up their underground dwelling.
Set underneath the idyllic town of Cheesebridge, The Boxtrolls centers on a young orphan named Eggs, who encounters these creatures the entire town has feared for several years. Watch as the characters from Alan Snow's novel Here Be Monsters come to life in this new motion poster.
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 aboveground to save them, where he teams with an adventurous young girl to save not only the Boxtrolls but the soul of Cheesebridge.
