'The Boxtrolls' trailer: There's nothing to fear -- VIDEO

Get ready for trolls! The big mythical beings get a makeover as sweet and stout creatures in the newly released trailer for the stop-motion, animated adventure film The Boxtrolls.

In the trailer,  viewers can get a glimpse at the underground mechanics and high-flying action of the trolls, as well as the extreme love of cheese by Cheesebridge’s townspeople, all of which is portrayed in a unique, eye-catching animated style. Based on the children’s novel Here Be Monsters by Alan Snow, The Boxtrolls tells the story of a young orphaned boy, Eggs (Isaac Hemstead Wright), who is raised by underground, cave-dwelling trolls.

The townspeople of Cheesebridge believe the trolls to be monsters who are out to steal its children and fine cheeses, when in reality, the trolls are sweet oddballs — who wear boxes, hence the title — interested in dumpster diving and mechanical junk collecting. When Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley), an evil exterminator, is out to get the trolls in order to enter the high society of Cheesebrige, Eggs and his friend Winnie (Elle Fanning) must come to the defense of his adopted family.

Can’t wait until The Boxtrolls‘ Sept. 26 release date? Check out the trailer, and its adorable trolls, here: READ FULL STORY

Kodi Smit-McPhee hopes to create a 'new nostalgia' in 'A Birder's Guide to Everything' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

At only 17, Kodi Smit-McPhee is probably best known for starring in somewhat macabre projects — from Let Me In to The Road, his precocious darkness and intense gaze seem to always be on display. Even ParaNorman‘s Norman Babcock was a bit of an outcast. Even though A Birder’s Guide to Everything isn’t exactly devoid of difficult emotional truths (and OK, OK, a gawky high school kid obsessed with birding might still fit into “charmingly misunderstood outcast” territory), Smit-McPhee was thrilled to finally get to work with actors his own age.

“I was into the nostalgia of having a group again — a kid group like Goonies, Stand by Me, going on an adventure,” said Smit-McPhee. He’d never seen the River Phoenix coming-of-age pic till his co-star Alex Wolff introduced him to it during filming. Viewings quickly became an on-set ritual. “We used to go to each other’s rooms and watch the movie all the time. It was really fun,” he said.

Beware, Iron Man 3 spoilers lie ahead …
