Be Charmed By THE BOXTROLLS In Full Trailer

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
In a world where Pixar have stumbled somewhat in their last few outings and Aardman have never managed to replicate their small screen success on the big screen, is it fair to say that stop motion animation house Laika have emerged as the most consistent players in the world of big screen animation? It may just be, given that the just released full trailer for The Boxtrolls looks to build upon the high standards of Coraline and ParaNorman.

Cheesebridge is a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that's the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs, since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher, who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kindhearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and adventurous rich girl Winnie to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change - and cheese.
Ben Kingsley, Jared Harris, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette and Isaac Hempstead-Wright provide the voices. Check out the fantastic new trailer below.
