Stop-Motion Film BOXTROLLS - Behind the Scenes Trailer
Laika Studios has released a charming new trailer for their next stop-motion animated feature, The Boxtrolls. It features a behind the scenes look at how the movie was made, and also includes some more footage from the film.
Laika has previously made films such as 2009's Coraline and 2012's ParaNorman. Both of those films were fantastic, and it looks like this new one is going to be just as fun. I'm looking forward to this!
The film is based on Alan Snow’s novel Here Be Monsters, which follows a group of sewer-dwelling Boxtrolls that have raised an orphan boy. The voice talent for the film includes Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan, and Simon Pegg. Here's the synopsis:
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.
The BoxTrolls opens in theaters on September 26th, 2014.
