Laika’s stop-motion animation, The Boxtrolls, gets a new trailer

It’s now one of my main missions when promoting this movie to inform people that The Boxtrolls is NOT a film by Tim Burton. The trailer for Boxtrolls premiered this week, and it was shown when I went to watch Disney’s Frozen. Someone behind me said, “Tim Burton did this,” and in my mind, I rolled my eyes. Anyway, check out the new trailer for The Boxtrolls below from stop-motion animation studio Laika (ParaNorman, Coraline).

Ever since The Nightmare Before Christmas, some people out there still confuse anyone doing stop-motion animation with Tim Burton. The only relations is that Laika used to have Henry Selick as supervising director. Selick is the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas, which was a film produced and written by Tim Burton.

The Boxtrolls hits theaters on September 26, 2014.
