Sneak Peek at Henry Selick's Stop Motion Coraline
Although I'm personally not a big fan of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, I do have immense appreciation for the extraordinary stop motion animation that filmmaker Henry Selick is a master at using. Coraline is Henry Selick's next stop animation feature film and it's an adaptation of a Neil Gaiman novel. There was a 3D teaser trailer in front of Beowulf for Coraline, if you happened to see it. If not, here's your first introduction and sneak peek look at Coraline, with the voice of Dakota Fanning as Coraline. I'm not impressed so far, but this is a short clip and I'm waiting for a real trailer to set my expectations.
Watch the sneak peek at Coraline here:
Coraline is both written and directed by Henry Selick, who directed the other stop animation movies The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, and Monkeybone. The film is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name. Coraline is set to arrive in theaters some time in 2008. The teaser poster for the film is featured below.
