Laika Gives Us Beautifully Animated Stop-Motion and Mighty McConaughey Beetle Samurai with 'Kubo and the Two Strings' Trailer

January 27, 2016


Coraline and ParaNorman animation studio Laika Entertainment have got another doozy of a stop-motion project to shove in our eye-parts. This one's called Kubo and the Two Strings, and it involves a Japanese boy battling spirits and monsters in his search for the lost, magical samurai armor of his late father. It also involves Charlize Theron as a monkey, Matthew McConaughey as a samurai beetle-man, Ralph Fiennes as an old ghost, and Rooney Mara as the above character, who appears to be a rather benign Dark Souls villain. And rest assured, the film makes up for in style what it lacks in string ambition. Though two strings is sort of bullshit.

Honestly, there's no way this guy is playing "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with two strings. It's just not happening.
