Everywhere you look, you'll see a giant star on a billboard advertisement for his or her new action movie or comedy flick. It's par for the course that the best talent would be slated for the biggest movies, yet surprisingly, one movie out this summer has managed to score quite a few A-listers despite not being your typical fare: Kubo and the Two Strings. The new film, out Aug. 19, is an expertly crafted film with an exceptionally cute story featuring a lead character, Kubo, who is sort of a superhero himself. Yet the rest of the movie's characters are just as hilarious and fun to watch, and it's no surprise, then, that the voice cast for Kubo and the Two Strings is pretty unbelievable.
