This animated feature from the folks who brought us Coraline and ParaNorman takes a look at a group of misunderstood night creatures, the Boxtrolls.
The Boxtrolls is set in Cheesebridge, a small Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets live creepy monsters called the Boxtrolls, who crawl out of the sewers at night to kidnap children and steal er, cheese.
At least that’s the legend residents have always believed in anyway.
The truth is that the Boxtrolls are simply an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes as clothes. The Boxtrolls found an abandoned baby a few years ago and have since raised him – who they call “Eggs” – to be one of their own.
When the gang is targeted by an exterminator named Archibald Snatcher who is bent on eradicating them, the Boxtrolls decide to let Eggs return to his own kind and teach the humans about who they really are. Helping him out is the adventurous rich girl Winnie.
This movie opens in Malaysia in September and features the voices of Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Simon Pegg, Richard Ayoade, Nick Frost, Jared Harris and Tracy Morgan. Directed by Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable.
