Hitting theaters this week are a couple of vastly different films aiming for vastly different audiences.

From the team that brought you 'Paranorman' comes this stop-motion animated tale of a group of underground, cheese-loving creatures who are being hunted down by an exterminator, so they kidnap a baby. Sounds funny! (See more about 'The Boxtrolls' here.)

Starring Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Tracy Morgan
