The Boxtrolls

THE BOXTROLLS WILL ROLL AT THE

FIRSTENERGY ALL-AMERICAN SOAP BOX DERBY

MOVIE’S BOXTROLL CHARACTERS TO “RACE” CUSTOM-BUILT SOAP BOX CAR IN

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS AT DERBY DOWNS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AKRON, OHIO, July 17th, 2014 – America’s iconic FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby holds its 77th annual World Championship finals at Derby Downs in Akron, Ohio on Saturday, July 26th – and characters from the Boxtrolls movie will be joining the fun, even racing down the track in their own custom-built car.  Focus Features, which releases LAIKA’s family event movie The Boxtrolls nationwide on Friday, September 26th, is partnering with the International Soap Box Derby and inviting families attending the World Championship to explore the fantastical world of The Boxtrolls as an official sponsor of the FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby.

At Derby Downs all day Saturday before the final races, fans will be able to meet the Boxtrolls, view the custom-built car on display, get free Boxtrolls gear, check out exclusive sneak preview clips from the new movie, and enter the Boxtrolls’ fantastical home environment with an immersive photo experience. Following the day’s interactive activities, quirky, mischievous creatures Fish, Shoe, and Sparky – in a racer powered by gravity and steered by the Boxtrolls themselves – will make their inaugural run on the speedway course in an exhibition race just before the Derby finals, with thousands of fans cheering the group across the finish line.

During the week-long festival, interactive experiences will include Boxtrolls surprises at the Monday, July 21st “Rock the Rec” event and the Thursday, July 24th “Topside Show,” at which the stunning custom-built soap box car from the world of the Boxtrolls will be unveiled.

 Soap Box Derby

The Boxtrolls join a long line of special guests at the Soap Box Derby in Akron who have included Presidents Nixon and Reagan, Academy Award winners James Stewart and Tom Hanks, and NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt. Thousands of local fans and visitors cheer racers from around the world who compete in a variety of divisions, integrating science, technology, engineering, and math into an educational curriculum and event series.

Called “the greatest amateur racing event in the world,” the Soap Box Derby is the preeminent youth racing program, with the World Championship finals held each July at the world-famous Derby Downs in Akron. Girls and boys, ages 7-18, from throughout the U.S. and several foreign countries bring the racers they have built and driven to victory in their home communities.

The first youth Soap Box race in the U.S. was organized in 1934 by a Dayton-based newspaper photographer who expected 19 kids to compete. Instead, a staggering 362 kids showed up with homemade cars built of orange crates, sheet tin, wagon, and baby-buggy wheels to compete in what was to become the first Soap Box Derby.

The sport raced into its heyday over the next several decades, with Boys’ Life reporting in 1959 that 3,000,000 people participated in some form of derby activity each year, including over 160 local derbies and the annual All-American in Akron.

The Boxtrolls

Opening nationwide Friday, September 26th, The Boxtrolls (www.TheBoxtrolls.com) is a family event movie from LAIKA, the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman, that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright of Game of Thrones) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning of Maleficent). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family. Based upon the book Here Be Monsters, by Alan Snow, The Boxtrolls is directed by Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable and is MPAA-rated PG.

I can’t wait for this movie. HURRY UP SEPTEMBER!!

Movie trailer clips from: YT/Movies Coming Soon & YT/Disney Movie Trailer

The outrageous new comedy SEX TAPE (out on July 18th), starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, carries on the tradition of Hollywood movies featuring male and female comedy duos. Before you go see SEX TAPE on July 18th, let’s remember some of cinema’s greatest male and female comedy duos!

Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are a married couple still very much in love, but ten years and two kids have cooled the passion.  To get it back, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in THE JOY OF SEX in one marathon three-hour session.  It seems like a great idea, until they discover that their most private video has gone public.  In a panic, they begin a wild night of adventure – tracking down leads, roping in friends, duping Annie’s boss – all to reclaim their video, their reputation, their sanity, and, most importantly, their marriage.

Check out the latest comedy duo in SEX TAPE on July 18th!
