CLIP: “The Boxtrolls” Halloween How-To and Studio Tour with Elle Fanning and Isaac Hempstead-Wright

The Boxtrolls Eggs and Winnie

The Boxtrolls are back after a strong premiere weekend, with a tour of Laika Studios with actors Isaac Hempstead-Wright and Elle Fanning (who play Eggs and Winnie Portley-Rind, respectively, in the movie), along with a “Halloween How-To” instructional video:

The Boxtrolls came in third place at the box office in its debut weekend with an estimated $17.28 million in ticket sales, behind the Denzel Washington thriller The Equalizer ($34.14 million) and coming up just short of the young adult adaptation The Maze Runner ($17.44 million). The ticket sales best the opening weekends of Laika’s previous films Coraline ($16.8 million) and ParaNorman ($14.1 million), and are the best opening for a stop-motion animated feature since Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride in 2005 ($19.15 million).

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
