Tired of the usual, run-of-the-mill, everyday behind the scenes featurettes?

Sick to death of seeing the same old interviews with movie stars about what inspired them to take the well-paid part they're currently filming?

Just kind of...done?

Well, try this new featurette for the newly-released The Boxtrolls on for size. From the team that brought you ParaNorman and Coraline, the stop-motion animation looks...beautiful, actually.
