"The Boxtrolls" movie quotes tell the story of a community of trolls who adopted an orphan boy and now face extermination. The 3D stop motion animated film was directed by Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi using a screenplay Irena Brignull and Adam Pava adapted from the novel "Here Be Monsters!" by Alan Snow. "The Boxtrolls" opened in the United States on September 26, 2014.
In "The Boxtrolls," the title characters are cave-dwelling little trolls who live underground, collect trash and wear boxes around, in which they can hide if they encounter humans. Many years ago, they found an abandoned infant, adopted him and named him Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright).
They've lived underneath the city of Cheesebridge for some time but recently, under the orders of town leader Lord Portley-Rind (Jared Harris) and exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley), the Boxtrolls are now unwelcome and being sought after. To save them, the Boxtrolls unlikely leader, Eggs, teams up with Lord Portley-Rind's daughter, Winnie (Elle Fanning), to keep the only family he's ever known safe."The Boxtrolls" brings some family fun into theaters already packed with other more adult movies such as "Dolphin Tale 2," "The Skeleton Twins," and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."
Let's See You Fit in Your Box
Winnie: "Who's there?"
Winnie: "Who are you, boy?"
Eggs: "I'm a Boxtroll!"
Winnie: "Then let's see you fit in your box! Mmmhmm"
Look Them in the Eye and Shake Hands
Winnie: "When you meet someone, you must look them in the eye and shake hands."
[Eggs stares at Winnie and shakes his hands above his head]
Winnie: "What are you doing?!"
Stand Up for Yourselves!
Eggs: "Stand up for yourselves! Don't be afraid anymore!"While no one really could have expected this end years ago when Eggs was adopted by the Boxtrolls, Eggs has grown into a leader of the cave dwellers and is now standing at their helm encouraging them to stop hiding and come out in the open.
Please Help Us!
Eggs: "Please help us!"
Winnie: "If I agree to help, then you have to do exactly what I say."
Eggs: "I promise!"
Winnie: "All right, first things first, off with the box!"
Winnie: "Stop that! All right, you petty thieves, bring me your loot."
Winnie: "You look like a proper boy."
Eggs: "Me? A proper boy?"
Winnie: "How do we get out of this place?"
