Our 14 Most Anticipated Movies Of 2014
The story follows an orphaned boy named Eggs (Isaac Hempstead Wright), who was raised by the Boxtrolls and grew up following in their footsteps, dumpster-diving and scouring for junk with the rest of them. Ben Kingsley voices the villainous Archibald Snatcher, a man determined to secure himself a place in Cheesebridge society by eradicating the town of the Boxtrolls. Between the premise and setting, which are based on Alan Snow’s novel Here Be Monsters, added to Laika’s developing reputation for quality storytelling set behind fantastic stop-motion animation, we’re hoping The Boxtrolls turns out to be Laika’s next instant classic.
Release Date: September 26, 2014
