Watch: Another New Teaser Trailer for Laika's The BoxTrolls

We've already had two stellar teaser trailers (first here, second here) for the third film from Laika (Coraline, ParaNorman), and now we've got another equally great one, showing us some new footage from The BoxTrolls!

The trailer shows a lot more of Eggs, the orphan human boy who's the centre of the film, (voice of Game of Thrones's Isaac Hempstead-Wright), as well as the pest exterminator character voiced by Sir Ben Kingsley. The BoxTrolls also features the voices of Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan. And a tonne of stop-motion BoxTrolls.

The trailer also features the song "(You're So Square) Baby, I Don't Care," a song made famous by Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly, and performed here by Cee Lo Green. "We had two previous trailers that were a little quieter," said co-director Anthony Stacchi to Yahoo Movies!, on the choice of the song. "And we wanted one here that definitely emphasized the fun and the action/adventure part."

The BoxTrolls opens on 12th September (UK)/26th September (US).

  1. I am so looking forward to this, to the point where it's almost painful. My most anticipated film of 2014, period.

    I usually love stop motion, even when it serves the usual horror-themed story, but this one looks fresh and one-of-a-kind. And, LAIKA proves once more with this teaser that, on the purely technical side, they're ahead of everyone else in the stop motion world.

    Just one important question : is it 'Boxtrolls' or 'BoxTrolls' ? The title is written as 'BoxTrolls', with an upper-case T, but everywhere I look on the internet, I see the 'Boxtrolls' spelling. So confusing…
