The Scorecard Review news

News: I loved Coraline and think ParaNorman is the best animated film of 2012, so I’m thrilled Laika and Focus Features are teaming up again for The Boxtrolls based on Alan Snow’s “Here Be Monsters.”

Here is a portion of the news release:

Portland, February 7th, 2013 – Marking their third project together, Laika and Focus Features, the two companies behind the current Academy Award-nominated animated feature ParaNorman, announced today that Laika has begun production on The Boxtrolls. The new movie will be released nationwide by Focus on October 17th, 2014. Focus CEO James Schamus and Laika President & CEO Travis Knight made the announcement today.

As on the previous animation collaborations ParaNorman and Coraline, Focus will hold worldwide distribution rights to The Boxtrolls, and Universal Pictures International will release the movie overseas (with eOne Distribution handling Canada). Coraline (2009) earned Golden Globe, BAFTA, Critics’ Choice, and Academy Award nominations »
