In the upcoming stop-motion animated film The Boxtrolls, Elle Fanning and Ben Kingsley meet monsters that aren't as menacing as they seem.

Tracy Morgan, Toni Collette, Simon Pegg and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Game of Thrones) also provide voices in the film about a boy named Eggs who was raised by the cave-dwelling Boxtrolls.

After growing up with the trolls, Eggs has trouble adjusting to the civilized world. In one scene, he startles a socialite by licking her.
