Trailering More Boxtrolls

For the third Boxtrolls trailer, we get some old-fashioned rock’n'roll to go with the fast and furious stop-motion antics: R&B star Cee Lo Green singing ”(You’re So Square) Baby, I Don’t Care,” which Elvis sang in ’57 in Jailhouse Rock and Buddy Holly covered a year later.

The song might be incongruous, but then so are the Boxtrolls when they’re above ground. So the combination is propulsive amid the Victorian/steampunk setting, and the song ties in nicely with the geometry of the Boxtrolls.

Anthony Stacchi (Open Season) directs with Graham Annable (story artist on Coraline and ParaNorman). David Ichioka produces with Laika president/CEO/lead artist Travis Knight. And the script is by Adam Pava and Irena Brignull. Coming Sept. 26th from Focus Features.

The voice cast includes Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Ben Kingsley, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, and Tracy Morgan
