The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class, and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs (voiced by Mr. Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Mr. Kingsley), who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kindhearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and adventurous rich girl Winnie (Ms. Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.

Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship.

Twenty years after failing to complete the 'Golden Mile' (a pint of beer in each of 13 pubs), five old friends reunite for another go at completing the bar crawl in this horror-comedy from the makers of 'Shaun of the Dead.' When they discover the locals are not what they seem, they have only one hope: get to the World's End, the 13th and final stop on their epic circuit.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reteam with director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) in this wildly entertaining thrill ride that critics call “funny as hell” (Richard Roeper, WLS-AM Chicago) and “sheer comic perfection” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Twenty years after their first epic pub crawl attempt, the “five musketeers” reunite in their home town to complete the ultimate challenge – one night, five friends, twelve bars – a boozy quest on which only the strongest will survive. But after a bizarre series of encounters with the out-of-this-world locals, they soon realize that reaching their final pub, The World’s End, may be the least of their troubles. They’re having the time of their lives, ready to take on the world…but tonight they may have to save it.
A signature brew of camaraderie, knockabout humor, excessive quaffing, questionable life choices, hand-to-hand combat, and explosive surprises, The World’s End reteams director Edgar Wright with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, following their hits Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007). The tale of The World’s End begins on June 22nd, 1990. In their suburban U.K. town of Newton Haven, five boys in the prime of their teenage youth celebrate the end of school by attempting an epic pub crawl together. Despite their enthusiasm and the downing of a slew of pints of beer, they fall short of seeing their quest through, to the last pub on their list, The World’s End. Twenty-odd years later, “the five musketeers” have each left their hometown and are now husbands, fathers, men with careers – with the flashing-red-light exception of their voluble onetime ringleader, Gary King (Simon Pegg), who is now a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens. The irrepressible Gary, keenly aware of his estrangement from his onetime closest friend Andy (Nick Frost), becomes hell-bent on trying “The Golden Mile” drinking marathon again. He convinces Andy, Steven (Paddy Considine), Oliver (Martin Freeman), and Peter (Eddie Marsan) to stage an encore, and one Friday afternoon they are all reunited. Gary is in his element: the mandate is one night, five guys, twelve pubs – imbibing at least one pint apiece at each establishment. Arriving in Newton Haven, they re-encounter Oliver’s sister Sam (Rosamund Pike), for whom Gary and Steven each still carry a torch. As the gang attempts along the way to reconcile their past and present, an increasingly insane and dangerous series of encounters with old haunts and acquaintances makes them realize that the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries…

Face it: life away from Vivi-Sec UK just hasn't worked out. Winona's attempt to join the Women’s Institute goes badly wrong; Claire's out of clean thongs; Philip the horse, trying to mount a stepladder and clear out the loft on a weekend 'like other men', just causes more devastation to a house never designed with 'people' shaped like this lot in mind. Okay, their creators back at the lab may have been about to kill them, but at least there were tasteful furnishings and as much buttock-level auto-dispensed toilet tissue as a horse could wish for. Unsurprisingly, Julian, the man who originally liberated them, gets less than a hero's welcome when he shows up again, bent on finishing the job of setting our animals free from the trappings of man. Forced to strip naked, sleep outdoors, forage for berries, even urinate in the open air, an already tense situation escalates into a full-scale siege when Mark the bird finally snaps and goes mad with a gun. With the house surrounded by hundreds of armed police and Julian issuing a demand that all animals everywhere are given free passage to 'somewhere nice, like Tuscany', it looks like the end for our furry fugitives.

Mark the bird (stage name Glen Belt), is in his expensive new cellar studio, struggling to write the perfect hit single. But his lyrics are more awful than ever and he can't think of a chorus. His self-run fan website (featuring a carefully shot photo of just his eyes) has received no visitors from the '90 billion' Claire assures him are out there deliberately ignoring him. But Keiko, a 14 year old musical prodigy in Tokyo, stumbles on the site, falls in love with 'Glen with the lovely eyes' and sends him a chorus. Mark, his pride wounded, tells Keiko to get lost, takes the chorus anyway, posts it on the site and sinks into a deep clinical depression. When he surfaces from bed a week later to find the song is a massive hit, he's not entirely prepared for the fame he's always craved. How to explain to an adoring public that the mysterious Glen Belt is a small fat talking bird - and plagiarist - called Mark Andrews?
