Stack ‘Em High In New ‘The Boxtrolls’ Poster

22 July 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Laika have unfortunately been ignored when ut comes to the average Joe’s listing off of popular animation studios. However, their output is gradually proving to display a consistent and darker tone than the likes of Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks etc. With stop-motion animated films Coraline and Paranorman raking in a combined gross of over $220 million, it seems as though we have every reason to see continued success from the company. Next up on Laika’s slate is The Boxtrolls, a film in which a young orphan boy is raised by the titular trolls.

The film caused some controversy with those of a right wing persuasion after suggesting in an early teaser that families could be made of same sex couples, but with nonsense like that ignored we can now focus on what looks to be a lovely animated feature. Directors Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi have had varied careers in »

My Fun Visit to Laika and the Amazing "The Boxtrolls!"

18 July 2014 7:25 PM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Experiencing everything that Portland, Oregon has to offer for the first time was quite magical which made it even more whimsical when I visited Laika, the home of "Coraline," "ParaNorman," and the upcoming "The Boxtrolls!"

Nestled within the agrarian roots of Hillsboro, Laika is housed inside a giant warehouse populated by creative folks, craftsmen, and CEO, leader, guru, head animator, and all-around nice guy, Travis Knight. He's such a down-to-earth guy and a fun communicator that I just had to take a picture with him in front of the Cheesebridge Market Place backdrop used in "The Boxtrolls."

The whole visit was devoted to Laika's edgy brand and of course, "The Boxtrolls." Based on "Here Be Monsters" by Alan Snow, we saw a few clips from the film, some from Act 1 and some from Act 2. They also showed us a Laika featurette which I hoped will be available to us soon »

Directors Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable Talk The Boxtrolls, Adapting Alan Snow’s “Here Be Monsters!”, Casting, and Eccentricities of Stop-Motion

14 July 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though directors Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable make their stop-motion animation directorial debut on Laika's The Boxtrolls, the duo was more than up to the task.  Stacchi brings co-directing and writing experience to go along with a career in the animation, art, and visual effects departments.  That paired quite well with Annable's story work in the art and animation departments on Laika's Coraline and ParaNorman, as well as his video game directing experience.  It's no surprise that the two worked so well together cracking the "Here Be Monsters!" adaptation, especially considering just how important collaboration is within the stop-motion studio. During my set visit to Laika, I got to sit in on a lengthy interview with Stacchi and Annable, which included commentary from producer David Ichioka.  They talked about the arduous story-cracking process, delegating responsibilities among the animators, the insane amount of planning that goes into a stop-motion production, just »

Elle Fanning to Star in Neil Gaiman's 'How to Talk to Girls at Parties'

10 July 2014 8:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This summer, Elle Fanning was part of Disney's box office winning revisionist fairytale Maleficent, but now she's heading into much more enticing territory. THR reports the star of Super 8 will lead How to Talk to Girls at Parties, an adaptation of a 2006 short story by Neil Gaiman, author of The Graveyard Book, Coraline and The Sandman. The story takes place in 1970s London and follows two boys heading to a party where one has no trouble hitting it off with a girl immediately, while the other shy one doesn't have the easiest time striking up a conversation. So what will Fanning's part be in the film then? More below! Well, writer Phillip Goslett and director John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Rabbit Hole) have turned the story into more of a love story about a schoolboy and ‎punk who uses music and art as a way to escape. »

Elle Fanning Books Neil Gaiman Adaptation How To Talk To Girls At Parties

10 July 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember a few years back, when Dakota Fanning was the precocious child star stealing all our hearts? Well, while Dakota has grown up, staring us down as an evil vampire in The Twilight Saga and appearing in smaller films like Night Moves, it’s pretty clear to see that her younger sister Elle has dethroned her in the hearts and minds of the general public.

Since breaking out with Somewhere and Super 8, younger Fanning hasn’t slowed down one bit, appearing in feel-good crowd-pleaser We Bought a Zoo, indie drama Ginger & Rosa, dystopian romance Young Ones and, most impressively, fairy-tale blockbuster Maleficent. Now, Fanning’s ready to finally prove herself as a lead actress, with news that she’s landed the lead role in How to Talk to Girls at Parties.

9 July 2014 10:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Neil Gaiman's How To Talk To Girls At Parties is getting the big screen treatment, with Elle Fanning set to star.

News

Sandman may be the highest profile Neil Gaiman project going through the Hollywood system at the moment (with American Gods heading to the small screen), but there's also a feature based on one of his short stories in the works too.

How To Talk To Girls At Parties is a Gaiman short story that's being adapted for the big screen by John Cameron Mitchell, along with Philippa Goslett. Mitchell is also set to direct. He is the man, of course, behind the terrific Hedwig And The Angry Inch.

Furthermore, it's now been revealed that Elle Fanning is attached to star in the film, taking on the role of a female alien on Earth, who wants to explore the most dangerous place in the entire galaxy. That would be Croydon. »

Laika Will Start Releasing One Movie A Year Very, Very Soon

9 July 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If there.s one thing the stop-motion animation process is known for, it.s being painstakingly slow. Not only are the films put together one frame at a time with intense care and precision, there is an incredible amount of work that needs to go into development and construction long before the first shutter snap is even heard. The folks up at Laika, however - the studio that brought us Coraline and ParaNorman - are constantly making advances in their field and finding new ways to work at peak efficiency. Their model is so effective, in fact, that they will soon start releasing one movie every year. This impressive bit of news was dropped on us late last year on the set of the upcoming The Boxtrolls by Travis Knight, Laika.s chairman and CEO. Laying down details about the company.s plans over the next few years, Knight revealed »

101 Things to Know about The Boxtrolls from Our Set Visit to Laika’s Studio

9 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If Hollywood gave out awards simply to honor the hardest working people in show business, the folks over at Laika would undoubtedly sweep the categories.  Known for their stop-motion animation films Coraline and ParaNorman, the studio's newest effort pushes the medium's boundaries in all conceivable directions.  The Boxtrolls, adapted from Alan Snow's book "Here Be Monsters!", has a family-friendly coming-of-age story about fathers and sons at its core, surrounded by cutting edge stop-motion animation and visual effects technology, an inspiring voice cast, and a team of incredibly dedicated artists and craftspeople. While on set at Laika's Portland, Oregon-based studio, I had a chance to talk to producer David Ichioka, directors Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable, and CEO/Lead Animator Travis Knight about The Boxtrolls.  Even more impressive than the interviews with those passionate filmmakers was my guided tour of working animation stages, concept design presentations, and the rapid prototyping facility, »
