Synopsis

Alan Snow's children's bestseller Here Be Monsters is transformed into another animated delight by the studio behind Coraline and ParaNorman. Beneath the olde worlde streets of Cheesebridge, an orphan called Eggs is raised by a community of shy but demonised junk collectors called Boxtrolls. Hunted down by a scheming pest exterminator (Ben Kingsley), the cardboard-clad critters must rely on Eggs to prevent their species ending up on the scrapheap. With an eclectic voice cast (including Elle Fanning, Nick Frost, Toni Collette and Tracy Morgan) to complement the busy mix of stop-motion, CG and hand-drawn animation, there's more to this package than meets the eye.
