Nick Frost CUBAN FURY Interview

Equal parts humor and heart, Cuban Fury tells the story of Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost), a man who gave up his dream of winning the UK Junior Salsa Championships, 25 years ago.  Now, he’s out of shape, unloved and doing a job he’s not passionate about, until the arrival of his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, Julia (Rashida Jones) reawakens his love of salsa dancing.  From an original idea by Nick Frost, the film also stars Chris O’Dowd, Olivia Colman, Ian McShane and Kayvan Novak.

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Nick Frost talked about where the idea for this film came from, his secret dream to be a dancer, why he decided not to write the film himself, shooting a full-on dance fight scene, how Simon Pegg ended up doing a cameo, how grueling the dance training was, finding the right balance in tone, what this cast was like to work with, the film’s love story, how much he hates doing wire work, and the deleted scenes.  He also talked about doing the Fox comedy pilot Sober Companion with Justin Long, how he got involved with The Boxtrolls, the lack of an update on the Tintin sequel, and his experience making Business or Pleasure with Vince Vaughn.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Laika has released a new trailer for their stop-motion animated feature, The Boxtrolls.  The movie tells the story of the misunderstood titular trolls that live underneath the streets of Cheesebridge, where they attempt to raise an orphaned human boy as their own.  This trailer doesn’t go deep into the plot, but does highlight the personality of the boxtrolls, and although they’re capable of human speech, most of their dialogue here is the adorable gibberish that sounds like the minions from the Despicable Me movies.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film features the voices of Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, and Tracy MorganThe Boxtrolls opens in 2D and 3D on September 26th.

The folks at Laika Studios are truly doing special work.  While other animation studios are chasing the almighty dollar with generic-looking animation and cheap, easy jokes and visual gags, Laika aims higher.  The studio’s last two efforts, Coraline and ParaNorman, pair gorgeous visuals with sophisticated and challenging storytelling, and that formula looks to continue with their next film The Boxtrolls.  Focus Features has released a new trailer for the pic, which tells the story of the misunderstood titular trolls that live underneath the streets of Cheesebridge, where they attempt to raise an orphaned human boy as their own.  This trailer doesn’t feature any of the dialogue just yet, but instead opts to show off the adorable characters brought to life through the Laika magicians in a series of scenes set to Cee Lo’s new cover “They’re So Square.”

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  Directed by Anthony Staachi and Graham Annabele, the film features the voices of Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, and Tracy MorganThe Boxtrolls opens in 2D and 3D on September 26th.

Focus Features has released a new trailer for the upcoming stop-motion animated film The Boxtrolls.  The story tells the tale of the titular trolls who live underneath the streets of Cheesebridge.  Legend has it that the Boxtrolls steal the townspeople’s children and cheese, but the truth of the matter is that the monsters are raising an orphaned human boy named Eggs as one of their own.  This trailer actually begins by showing how the folks at Laika Studios (the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman) craft their gorgeous films before giving a look at the characters in motion.  Unsurprisingly the whole thing looks great, and I’m remain enthused about the forward-thinking teaser trailer that was released earlier this year.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  Directed by Anthony Stacchi (Open Season) and Graham Annable, the film features the voices of Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan.  The Boxtrolls opens in 2D and 3D on September 26, 2014.

Focus Features has released the first teaser trailer and poster for the upcoming animated feature The Boxtrolls.  The film comes from Laika, the stop-motion animation studio behind Coraline and last year’s excellent ParaNorman, and tells the tale of the titular trolls who live underneath the streets of Cheesebridge.  Legend has it that the Boxtrolls steal the townspeople’s children and cheese, but the truth of the matter is that the monsters are raising an orphaned human boy named Eggs as one of their own.  This teaser unsurprisingly shows off some gorgeous animation and character creation from Laika, while also teasing a charming story about misunderstood outsiders.  In an animation marketplace dominated by unprovoking, inoffensive family fare, Laika is truly doing something unique by telling stories that reflect our ever-changing social culture and the “modern family.”

Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer and poster.  Directed by Anthony Stacchi (Open Season) and Graham Annable, the film features the voices of Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan.  The Boxtrolls is due out September 26, 2014.

Laika and Focus Features are teaming up once again for The Boxtrolls.  Their third production will be the 3D stop motion and CG hybrid animated adaptation of Alan Snow’s “Here Be Monsters.”  The story centers on a posh Victorian-era town of people obsessed with finery and stinky cheese, but are plagued by an underground society of foul monsters who steal their children…and cheese.  Similar in themes to their previous productions Coraline and ParaNorman, the under-dwellers are not exactly what the citizens’ legends say they are.

Directed by Anthony Stacchi (Open Season) and Graham Annable (a story artist on Coraline and ParaNorman), The Boxtrolls features an impressive voice cast featuring Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan.  The Boxtrolls is due out October 17, 2014.  Hit the jump to see the full synopsis along with the first concept image from the film.
