boxtrolls-trailer

The first official trailer has just been released for the stop-motion animated feature The Boxtrolls, which is produced b y LAIKA (Paranorman) and directed by Antony Stacchi (Open Season). The film boasts of an impressive voice cast list that includes Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan.

The Boxtrolls centers around the titular creatures that live underneath the charming streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night in order to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheese. Of course, that’s what the pervasive legend says. The truth is surprisingly benign – the Boxtrolls are merely a community of lovable outcasts who are raising an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. It is this same boy who must venture aboveground in order to save his adoptive community from an evil exterminator hellbent on eradicating the entire race of Boxtrolls.
