Well, here's a slam dunk for anyone who liked animation studio Laika's previous efforts, “Coraline” and “ParaNorman.” A new movie, co-directed by Graham Annable (the story artist on both those movies) along with Anthony Stacchi (“Open Season”), featuring A-list talent and another unique, fresh tale. Intrigued, read on...
"The BoxTrolls," an adaptation of the best-selling illustrated novel “Here Be Monsters” by Alan Snow, brings together a pretty first rate voice cast (Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan and Ben Kingsley) to tell the story of the Victorian-era town of Cheesebridge, fearful of the trolls that live beneath its city streets, emerging at night to steal the city's children and cheese (the two things they value most). And yeah, we like this first little flavor so far.
You'll have to wait for this one as it doesn't drop until September 26, 2014 but watch the teaser below.
