Focus Features has released a teaser trailer for the animated family film The Boxtrolls. The film is directed by Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi and features the voice talents of Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Ben Kingsley, Nick Frost, Jared Harris, and Tracy Morgan. The Boxtrolls is scheduled to be released in theaters September 26, 2014.
The new 3D animated adventure from Laika Studios tells the tale of the Boxtrolls, monsters who live underneath the charming streets of Cheesebridge, who crawl out of the sewers at night to steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend the townspeople have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of lovable oddballs who are raising as one of their own an abandoned and orphaned human boy named Eggs. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous exterminator who is bent on eradicating them, Eggs must venture above ground to save them, where he teams with an adventurous young girl to save not only the Boxtrolls but the soul of Cheesebridge.
