An orphan boy who has been raised by a group of trash collectors known as the Boxtrolls, must help his adopted family ward off an evil exterminator.
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 a 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 Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family. Starring: Elle Fanning, Tracy Morgan, Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. Based on the brilliantly inventive book series, Here Be Monsters.
