“The Boxtrolls” — First Trailer

It’s taken a long time to get here, but The Boxtrolls will finally make their film debut on 26 September 2014.  The film comes from Laika, the stop-motion animation studio that brought us the films Coraline and ParaNorman, so expectations are high.

The Boxtrolls is based on Alan Snow’s Here Be Monsters!   Snow both wrote the novel and drew the 500+ black and white illustrations in the book.

The lead role of the orphan boy named “Eggs” will be voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright, aka Bran Stark, from Game of Thrones.  Other voice actors include Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon-Pegg-and-Nick-Frost, and Richard Ayoade (the beloved “Moss” from The IT Crowd).

This looks like a charmer.
