THE BOXTROLLS releases in theaters on September 26!

A family movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that tells the story of a new kind of family. We meet the fun and friendly Boxtrolls, a community of mischievous creatures who  are tasked with raising an orphaned human boy.  They name him Eggs because of the box he’s found in.

Eggs is voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright. The town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher is voiced by Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley, who along with his henchmen come up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls. At the same time, Eggs is coming of age and wants to venture outside of the caves beneath the street.  When he ventures  “into the light,” he meets and teams up with feisty Winnifred, voiced by Elle Fanning, and the duo work together to save his BoxTroll family from the Snatcher.

The film is based on the novel “Here Be Monsters” by Alan Snow and directed by  Anthony Staachi and Graham Annable. The BoxTrolls is rated PG.
