About The Boxtrolls…

The third animation collaboration from LAIKA and Focus Features, the companies behind the Academy Award-nominated features ‘ParaNorman’ and ‘Coraline.’ The new 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid animated feature is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, 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 (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), 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 (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change — and cheese.

Will you be seeing The Boxtrolls tonight? Or this weekend?

  8. Tammy says:

    The behind the scenes on how this movie is made is unreal! I am so intrigued with the stop motion animation. I’ve watched the bonus features on my Paranorman DVD more than the actual movie – so I’m sure this one is going to be superb like Paranorman and Caroline were.

  9. Debra Holloway says:

    I honestly think this is a great movie. It is wholesome, fun, and exciting. It is a movie the whole family can enjoy, and one can tell the producers, staff, and actors put a lot of work into making it.
