Recently, I’ve found myself as a stay-at-home-mom again. For the last 3 years I tackled the world of news as a social media producer here in Houston. Now that I have more time with my family, we are looking for fun ways to spend time together. In comes family movie night! Nothing beats curling up on the couch with my kids and big bowl of popcorn.
This month a movie we have LONG anticipated watching is hitting store shelves… The Boxtrolls! Oh, and did we mention it’s been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature?
About the movie:
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes in the family event movie The Boxtrolls. Starring, in voice performance, Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead Wright (Game of Thrones), and Elle Fanning (Maleficent), the new movie from animation studio LAIKA, the makers of the Academy Award®-nominated Coraline and ParaNorman, comes to Blu-rayTM 3D and Blu-rayTM Combo Pack including Blu-ray, DVD & DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet on January 20, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
