Amazing-looking film. I still live down the street from where they're shooting. Maybe I should apply. It's been five years since I tried out for Coraline.
LIO found a you tube link that works:
Wikipedia describes the film as "3D stop motion/CGI", so I'd be curious to see how they blend those media/styles.
The film has a great cast: Ben Kingsley, Simon Pegg, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Toni Collette and Jared Harris.
If you're having trouble seeing the video, try the Media Hint browser extension -- it automagically fixes the region-blocking shenanigans for practically all online videos.
I hope this does well. I fear it might be a tough sell for modern audiences. Let's hope they give it an adequate marketing and advertising budget and don't just dump it on the market.
Sure looks gorgeous.
Great!!! Looking forward to it!
This looks awesome! The character fabrication looks fantastic! I haven't read the book yet but I too love the style.
Has anyone seen The Boxtrolls yet?
It opened a week ago here in Australia! Surprising, films usually open a few weeks later, and Paranorman didn't open in theatres here until 3 months after the US release, when DVDs were already for sale at Amazon.
Go see it.
It's been out in the UK for a while too, and has been top of the box(troll?)-office for some time which is absolutely wonderful news. Went to see it a few days ago in a cinema completely empty apart from me and my girlfriend, and 1 other person and their child. Absolutely incredible film, can't wait to watch it again - I am completely in love with it (particularly the animation and design of Snatcher).
Seeing it this weekend. No spoilers! :P
I saw it on Friday as it just opened this weekend in the US. Loved it and great story. Everything from the production design to the costumes and FX are very well done. I think LAIKA is gaining more and more fans as they progress with their films. I was reading an interview with Anthony Staachi and he made a (funny) analogy between Pixar and Laika, it's Hysterical.
Link is below if you want to read it on i09
Hopefully my wife and I will be seeing it this Tuesday.
