Stop-motion studios Laika's The Boxtrolls is one of 2014's most eagerly anticipated animated movies.
Due in September, it's their second feature (following 2012's ParaNorman) since the departure of Coraline's Henry Selick. The teasers so far have kept their cards very close to their chest, with little (if any) actual footage from the movie. The third trailer- which has just arrived online- changes that, and contains a healthy dollop of the film, while (thankfully) still not revealing too much. It does a great job of introducing us to the world of the film, and gives us a chance to soak up the movie's charming visuals. It's unlikely that this will be the final trailer, but if it were it wouldn't matter- we're sold already.
The finished film will star an all-star voice cast featuring Sir Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg and The IT Crowds' Richard Ayeoade.
The trailer features no dialogue though, so we'll have to wait to see
how it turns out. The Boxtrolls will be released in Cinemas in the UK
on 12th September, with the US release following on September 26th.
