THE BOXTROLLS (PG, SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM TOMORROW)

From the makers of two of the most innovative animations in the past few years –

Paranorman and Coraline – comes a new adventure based on Alan Snow’s renowned children’s novel, Here Be Monsters. A young boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors, tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator – in this enigmatic 3D tale that could be the animation of the Autumn. Featuring the voices of Maleficent’s Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Toni Collette and Ben Kingsley, this could well be one for both the young ‘uns and adults alike – with clever comedic touches that were prevalent in the makers’ previous outings.
