First Trailer: LAIKAs “Kubo and the Two Strings”

LAIKA (“Coraline,” “ParaNorman”) and Focus Features have unveiled the trailer for their next stop motion animated feature “Kubo and the Two Strings”. A combination of stop-motion and CG in the 3D, the swashbuckling adventure is set in a mythical ancient Japan.

Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, and Brenda Vaccaro lead the cast of the film about a young boy who leads a quiet life in a sleepy shoreside village – until a spirit from the past catches up with him to enforce an age-old vendetta. The film itself opens August 19th next year.
