It's been a while since I've done a trailer reaction since I wanted to wait for a trailer that completely blew me away. With the release of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer (a few days earlier than intended due to it being leaked, it was meant to be released next Tuesday during Agents of SHIELD), I have found that trailer. This is one of the best trailers that has been released recently and my excitement for this film is now even higher than it already was.

This is a tricky film to talk about. Let me start by saying that Gone Girl is an excellent film and shows David Fincher to still be one of the all time greats at constructing thrillers but a major part of a film relates to a mid-film twist. Whilst I will try not to spoil the twist in this review, I may end up revealing more than I mean to when I talk about why I found the film so good. As a result, consider this your spoiler warning.

I have a bit of a mixed reaction to the films of Laika. Whilst they have always shown a great talent for animation, they haven't always had the best stories. Whilst Coraline was excellent, I felt ParaNorman was pretty weak for the most part, despite having an excellent ending. With The Boxtrolls though, Laika are back to the quality they exhibited with Coraline.
