Trailer: The Boxtrolls

posted by Nell Minow

Coming this fall from Laika (“Coraline,” “ParaNorman”), “The Boxtrolls” stars Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, and Tracy Morgan in the story of a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family. It’s based on Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow.  The trailer looks awesome — love the cover of the Elvis classic, “Baby, I Don’t Care.”

Here’s an early look:
