The BoxTrolls Poster

A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.

“The Boxtrolls” Teaser Movie Trailer

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Here is the teaser trailer from Focus Features’ upcoming film “The Boxtrolls”, opening in theaters everywhere on September 26, 2014. The film is directed by Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable, starring Ben Kingsley, introducing Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan, and Simon Pegg.

The new 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid animated feature is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class, and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kindhearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and adventurous rich girl Winnie (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.

THE WATCH Movie Review

Friday, July 27th, 2012




On paper, this movie would seem to be really good. Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade teaming up to do a comedy flick with a funny premise, gun play, and aliens; what can be better? Well that’s what I thought. The film will make you laugh a few times and it will entertain you enough but it’s not as good as it would seem on paper. My most important piece of advice regarding this movie is, if you decide to see it, don’t go into it with high expectations. Even though it’s got an interesting plot for a comedy (neighborhood watch vs. aliens), it seems like a cookie cutter comedy. Ben practically phoned in his role and Vince about half of his. Jonah was a little more tuned-in, and not-so-popular-on-the-big-screen Richard helped keep the movie afloat. There was too much corniness, predictability, and cliché. The story has so much potential but the comedy just didn’t seem that fresh. For example, a movie that comes to mind comparatively is Paul and that one is much funnier and overall better. It does have its share of raunchiness, WTF moments, and actor solos (moments in the film where it seems the director lets them each do their own little routine). READ FULL REVIEW

SUBMARINE hit theaters June 3 , 2011.

Fifteen-year-old Oliver Tate has two big ambitions: to save his parents’ marriage via carefully plotted intervention and to lose his virginity before his next birthday. Worried that his mom is having an affair with New Age weirdo Graham, Oliver monitors his parents’ sex life by charting the dimmer switch in their bedroom. He also forges suggestive love letters from his mom to dad.

Meanwhile, Oliver attempts to woo his classmate, Jordana, a self-professed pyromaniac who supervises his journal writing – especially the bits about her. When necessary, she orders him to cross things out. Based on Joe Dunthorne’s acclaimed novel, Submarine is a captivating coming-of-age story with an offbeat edge.
