Last weekend me and my girls were lucky enough to screen #MissingLink, a new film from LAIKA studios starring the voice talents of Hugh Jackman, Zoe Saldana and Zach Galifianakis. We are HUGE LAIKA fans, with Coraline being a favorite of ours, so we were really excited to see what LAIKA had in store for us. #MissingLink did not disappoint, we laughed our way through most of the film, which also had a ton of heart and of course a little bit of a life lesson thrown in for good measure. I’ll be very honest, a particular theme that stands out to me now is when there is a strong female character being represented and #MissingLink has that with Adelina, voiced by the phenomenal Zoe Saldana.Read More
You will always remember the first movie that your baby sits through. For me, the first movie my daughter sat through at 2 years old was Coraline. At first, I thought "What is this creepy movie?" then I sat through it again, and LOVED it. From the creators of Coraline, we are very excited and can't wait to see their next creation, The BoxTrolls.
A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they have built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
My family and I were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at about 20 minutes of footage of the film out on September 26, 2014 and now, we can't wait to see the whole thing.
The next time you are at the theater, look for The BoxTroll mirror. We had so much fun watching the different characters mirror our movements.
