NEW TRAILER: "The Boxtrolls"

Focus has released a unique new trailer for Laika’s The Boxtrolls. This one plays off the studio’s use of stop motion miniature techniques, replacement animation and the hands of the artist. It’s a beautiful tribute to the art.

I'm glad they included a little BTS in this teaser… Laika is so meticulously flawless in their execution that I sometimes need a reminder that they're doing actual stop motion animation. I can't wait to see more!


I saw this with "Frozen" in theaters.
