A fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses.

Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses.

At least that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells.

The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, EGGS (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator ARCHIBALD SNATCHER (Acadamy Award-winner Ben Kingsley) who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kind-hearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and an adventurous rich girl WINNIE (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese

THE BOXTROLLS IS OUT IN UK CINEMAS ON SEPTEMBER 12TH 2014

  1. This looks fun, kind of reminds me of the Roald Dahl stories I loved as a kid (actually still love them as an adult). I don’t think it will be Wes Anderson-good, but the trailer is promising. Funny how so many kids movies these days seem aimed just as much at young adults on a nostalgia trip (thank Pixar for that!)

    I also really liked how they used Santigold’s “GO!” in this trailer, it’s been awhile since we’ve heard new music from her I forgot how much I liked her tunes.
