    I can't wait. Though I wish a mod can change the title to 'Laika Studios' present The Boxtrolls'.

    Is it just me or are Laika trying to teach kids about stuff like equality, homosexuality and the hard-hitting stuff like that? If so I'm all for it. Since Pixar have relaxed on the heavy themes in recent years it'll be nice for another animation studio to start

    If you read that really hateful homophobic comment for this on the main page, I'm glad people are defending the film and rallying against that one commentator.

    The best thing is that Laika is very laidback about their approach. They are taking it very causally and not being overbearing about it. I like it. Because in time, that's how it's going to be generations from now..acceptence...well..ideally.

    It looks like it could be a fun film to watch.

    Why did Universal go all scorched earth on every single video featuring footage from this teaser?

    If it's on YouTube, it's just an automatic process. They seem to be allowing videos now though.



    I'm really digging the work that Laika Studios is doing. "Paranorman" was a kids movie, but it had a lot of mature content that was handled well. Funny enough, it had a gay character in it as well.

    Laika is the Pixar of stop motion films. They're putting effort out there to put their name out there as a brand, especially for this sort of animation.

    Kind of like how they handled the gay character in ParaNorman. It wasn't blatant, just this little twist at the end.

    This is the one thing that I hope the Oscars will recognize and not just go for the obvious.

    For example, for the Oscars this year, while I hope Frozen wins for Best Picture, I would love it more if The Wind Rises wins instead. Sometimes, it feels like the Oscars are shortsighted on animated flicks and have certain obligations to make, hence of their safe choices. I never too notice of this until Brave won last year.

    With Laika and Studio Ghibli maybe it's time the Oscars think outside of the box.

    That's also a spambot, not an actual person.

    Miyazaki had won before. If anything awarding his last film would come off as far more of an "obligation." Oddly enough Frozen was the first Disney Animation Studios film to win Best Animated Feature.

    Wreck it Ralph or ParaNorman should have won over Brave though. I liked Brave but those films had more inventive animation and stories that were a little more fleshed out.

    I agree. I'm actually very conflicted on Brave. I don't waste my time on hating movies, so it's not that. It's the fact that the behind-the-scenes problems were reflective on what happened on the screen; If it felt like too many ideas proposed by more than one person, instead of the original director Brenda Chapman.

    Till this day, I hear praises for John Lassister from people like Jennifer Lee (Frozen) so I don't know if it's actually Chapman who was the problem, if she was never on the right page with the Pixar people, or if Pixar was too micromanaging. I know Pixar hasn't said much while Chapman has been very vocal, for obvious reasons.

    Devin Faraci snapped this pic at cinemacon. I wonder if Laika built these suits themselves.
