First Trailer and Poster for Focus Features’ ‘The BoxTrolls’


Have a look at the first teaser for Laika’s (the company that brought us Coraline and ParaNorman) stop-motion animated feature, The BoxTrolls. Focus Features isn’t releasing the film until September 26, 2014, so there is still a bit of a wait on this one.

Based on Alan Snow’s best-selling novel “Here Be Monsters”, the BoxTrolls are believed to be monsters that live under the street and steal children and cheeses from unsuspecting residents, when in reality they are harmless, misunderstood creatures. The cast includes Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Tracy Morgan, Simon Pegg, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, and Richard Ayoade.
