On the heels of ParaNorman’s success, Focus Features has just closed a deal to release their third animated feature: The Boxtrolls. The film will be a 3-D stop motion and CG hybrid feature and is currently in production at LAIKA (the studio behind ParaNorman and Coraline) with a high-profile voice cast including Tracy Morgan, Toni Collette, Ben Kingsley, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, and Elle Fanning.

Based on Here Be Monsters!, Alan Snow’s bestselling children’s novel, the film is set in the wealth, status, and cheese-obsessed town of Cheesebridge. The Boxtrolls are a group of trolls who live underground and come out at night to steal precious cheeses from the townspeople. When Archibald Snatcher (Kingsley) decides to eliminate the misunderstood creatures and it’s up to a young human girl (Fanning) to help the town and its underground dwellers find peace.

New spooky 'ParaNorman' trailer: 'The witch's curse is real!'

The latest trailer for LAIKA stop-motion animated 3D adventure ParaNorman is out, and it’s got a creepier edge than the earlier trailers, which were much lighter. The Focus Features movie about little Don King-haired 11-year-old Norman Babcock — a boy who sees dead people and battles zombies — opens wide this Friday.

“The witch’s curse is real! And you’re the one who has to stop it!” shouts Norman’s Uncle Prenderghast, voiced by John Goodman.

“Me? No, you must have it wrong,” meekly replies Norman, voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In and The Road). Scariness ensues.

Sam Fell (The Tale of Despereaux) and Chris Butler directed the movie. Butler also penned it.
