The filmmakers who brought us the magical worlds of Coraline and ParaNorman have crafted another visual stunner that could very well be the family movie of the fall.
The Boxtrolls tells the story of a world that exists beneath a city, much like the one you live in. The film’s latest trailer has arrived and it delves much deeper into the story than the first The Boxtrolls trailer.
It follows how these trolls have raised an orphan boy who goes by the name of Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright). He has lived a happy life below the city streets in underground caverns. Things seem to be fine in this world and the one above it, until the evil Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) decides that it’s time to snatch up all those trolls and put an end to this scourge.
The Boxtrolls lands in theaters September 26 and features an incredible voice cast beyond the Oscar winner in Kingsley. Elle Fanning (she who gave us a few fantastic Maleficent quotes) is joined by Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan.
To get an idea of the visual mastery audiences are in store for when The Boxtrolls hits theaters, watch Coraline online and we’re sure The Boxtrolls will shoot onto your must-see list for fall.
