Synopsis

This stop-motion wonder from the animation house behind Coraline and ParaNorman is based on Alan Snow's children's book Here Be Monsters. In an 1800s-style otherworld, an orphan called Eggs is raised by a subterranean community of shy garbage gatherers called the Boxtrolls. Being a bit different, they find themselves targeted for permanent disposal by the villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley). The age-old scrap between good and evil is thus recycled with a suitably eclectic voice cast (including Elle Fanning, Nick Frost, Toni Collette and Tracy Morgan) to go with the weird and wonderful creations.
