Kubo and the Two Strings

Laika Films, the masterminds behind Coraline, Paranorman, and The Boxtrolls, is celebrating it's 10th anniversary this year with the release of Kubo and the Two Strings. Stop-motion films are definitely a favorite of mine and this one is looks stunning (the trailer features a few glimpses of the monsters and some familiar looking witches).  Here's a description of the story from IMDB:

Kubo lives a quiet, normal life in a small shoreside village until a spirit from the past turns his life upside down by re-igniting an age-old vendetta. This causes all sorts of havoc as gods and monsters chase Kubo who, in order to survive, must locate a magical suit of armor once worn by his late father, a legendary Samurai warrior.

Kubo and the Two Strings arrives in theaters on August 19, 2016 (in 3D) and features the voices of Art Parkinson, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Rooney Mara, George Takei and Ralph Fiennes. Watch the trailer below.
