Image for The Boxtrolls

An animated fantasy from the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman. Beneath the streets of Cheesebridge live a race of rubbish-collecting creatures called the Boxtrolls. One day they find an orphaned human boy (Isaac Hempstead-Wright). Despite their quirky, mischievous ways the trolls are warm-hearted and they raise the boy as one of their own, even furnishing him with his own box from which he gets his name, Eggs. The villain of the town is a mean exterminator named Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) who wants to eradicate the trolls. Eggs must venture 'into the light' and deal with other humans above ground if he wants to save his family. Together with his feisty new friend Winnifred (Elle Fanning), he comes up with a daring plan.
