This September, look out for the release of The Boxtrolls --- based on Alan Snow’s HERE BE MONSTERS! --- a stop motion adventure-comedy film that looked stunning in its early trailer. The film is about an orphaned boy named Eggs raised by trash-collecting trolls. But when an evil exterminator sets his sights on eliminating the Boxtrolls, Eggs has to find a way to save the only family he's ever known. Animated entirely with stop-motion technology, this one looks like it will be a visual treat.
