I’ve always got time for a new Laika project, and thankfully we’re just a month away from their latest animated film ‘The Boxtrolls.’ Featuring the voices of Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Jared Harris, Toni Collette, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan and Simon Pegg, ‘The Boxtrolls’ is penciled in for a September 26th release in the US and a September 12th bow in the UK. The stop motion comedy-adventure film based on the novel ‘Here Be Monsters!’ by Alan Snow.
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.
First Look At Joseph Gordon-Levitt As High-Wire Walker Philippe Petit In Robert Zemeckis’ ‘The Walk’
After wrapping principal photography yesterday (August 6th), these first two images have hit the web from Robert Zemeckis’ ‘The Walk.’ The film is a true story based on Philippe Petit’s book ‘To Reach the Clouds,’ starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the young dreamer who dared the impossible: an illegal wire walk between the World Trade Center towers.

Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Also starring in the film are James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Charlotte Le Bon, Clément Sibony and César Domboy. ‘The Walk’ opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on October 2nd, 2015.
