The trailer and theatrical poster for forthcoming animated movie The Boxtrolls have been released.
The adaptation of children’s fantasy novel Here Be Monsters! is stop motion 3-D adventure, set in the town of Cheesebridge, where the wealthy inhabitants are seemingly under siege from sewer dwelling monsters who lurk the town at night stealing their children and their cheeses.
Of course, the reality is that the Boxtrolls are quirky and loveable creatures who wear recycled cardboard boxes as shells, and live in an underground cavern. Targeted by a villainous pest controller, the creatures turn to their adopted human orphan, Eggs to save them from destruction.
The top notch cast including Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and our very own Richard Ayoade, and the theatrical trailer can be seen below.
The Boxtrolls is due for release on 26th September.
