'BoxTrolls' Final Trailer to Premiere at Annecy

Portland based Laika studios has set it's upcoming final trailer for The BoxTrolls film to premiere at the Annecy International Festival of Animated Film on June 11.  It will be presented ahead of an open-air screening of ParaNorman, with it's writer and director Chris Butler there to into the film and participate in a Q&A season with the audience.  The final trailer will also be released via the interwebs on same day.  Based on the novel Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow (which, I suggest you read, by the way), The BoxTrolls will arrive in U.S. and Canadian theaters September 26, 2014.  Visit   http://www.annecy.org for more information.

The Boxtrolls is a comedic 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 since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator 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 to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.
