The Boxtrolls (PG) is showing at the Dome Cinema, Worthing today (Sunday September 28th).
Starring: Sir Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Tracy Morgan, Richard Ayoade, Nick Frost, Jared Harris, Toni Collette and Simon Pegg.
An orphan boy leads his quirky family of subterranean critters into battle with an evil villain in this fun-packed family animation. Eleven-year-old Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) has been raised in the underground lair of the Boxtrolls. These lovable creatures only come out at night to scour the streets of Cheesebridge for trash, which they turn into amazing inventions! Eggs has been with them so long that he now thinks he is a Boxtroll.
Their nemesis is the evil Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) – a pest exterminator with ideas above his station, who leads a sinister gang of Red Hats. Matters come to a head when Winnie (Elle Fanning), the neglected daughter of Cheesebridge’s wealthy mayor, teams up with Eggs to save the Boxtrolls. Adapted from Alan Snow’s novel ‘Here Be Monsters!’, this is a fabulous exquisitely animated new adventure from the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman.
Running time: 97 minutes.
The Dome Cinema is at 21-22 Marine Parade on Worthing seafront.
