I have no idea what’s going on here or even if I’m interested. Part of the problem is that while the trailer does a pretty good job of showing us the world, the look, the design, and telling us what people think of boxtrolls, it does very little to tell us what the film is really about, any hint of what the plot might be, or why I might want to go see it.
The things the film has going for it, I suppose, is the fact that it comes from the same filmmakers that made Paranorman, which a lot of people seem to like (I never had a chance to see it).
In any event, the film does look like it could possibly be cute (and maybe funny?). So maybe it will be worth seeing.
