“Families come in all shapes and sizes.” A teaser for the next stop-motion animated pic from Laika (Coraline, ParaNorman) has arrived just days after DOMA and Prop 8 were struck down by the Supreme Court. Based on Alan Snow’s novel Here Be Monsters!, The Boxtrolls follows a boy named Eggs (Game Of Thrones‘ Isaac Hempstead Wright) who’s raised by an unconventional family of underground-dwelling creatures who live in cardboard boxes. Ben Kingsley voices the villainous Archibald Snatcher, on a quest to exterminate the Boxtrolls. Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi co-direct the pic. Focus opens The Boxtrolls September 26, 2014:
