Coraline Trailer

Focus Features has unveiled the first trailer for Coraline, the next stop-motion animation movie from Henry Selick. Damn, does this just look incredible or what! The film is about a young girl who finds a secret door in her house and discovers an alternate version of her life. If you're at all a fan of stop-motion or the Nightmare Before Christmas, you'll definitely want to check this out. The story is actually based on a book by Neil Gaiman, which should tell you that it'll be pretty damn good. I also really love the look of that cat - I think he's going to be the best part of it. Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think!

The film is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name. Coraline is set to arrive in theaters on February 6th, 2009.

    I think it's odd that the trailer doesn't even mention the fact that its based on the book by Neil Gaiman... It should have said "from the author of Stardust"... etc.

    Finally... best trailer of the last couple months. Sold the Story, sold the characters, no cheesy 3-D Gimmicks, and got me excited for the movie without giving the whole damned plot. LOVE IT... been looking forward to this trailer for over a year.
  • miracle disease
    this is great! didn't even notice that it's a stop-motion...
  • @ 19 I actually thought it gave away the entire plot outline. still wanna see it though.
  • Mindcrime
    The book was a lot of creepy fun, I have been looking forward to this for quite awhile.
  • Kevin
    I'm very disappointed in the approach they took to this. The book was wonderful and creepy as hell. This looks...loud. And childish...too childish. I hate that we insist on dumbing things down for kids. What happened to the good old days of scaring children shitless with stories by the Brothers Grimm and Edgar Allen Poe. Neil Gaiman created a modern-day Grimm's fairytale...and Hollywood turned it into what you just saw above. Boo-hiss.
  • Rosy
    Think- This Looks FANTASTIC! Can't wait to see the whole movie.
  • isaac
    I think it's a pritty good movie. weird but good.
  • Lauren
    The book was actually REALLY creepy. This looks much too happy and cute and watered down. I thought they were making a mistake the instant they said they weren't doing live action, actually. That's a shame.
  • znep
    COOOl A rinecongraaaaaaaaaat! it looks nice
  • isabella
    what happened to it being creepy?im only have way through the book and i KNOW it should be creepier than that.and they better put the part about the beetles in too.
  • Maria
    Wow, I never really got into the other films that this director has done, but this looks amazing! It brings out the little kid in me.....I just might have to spend money on it!
  • Attend the premiere of Coraline in Portland on Feb 5th!!! Its for a really good cause 100% of the final sale price will support Starlight Children's Foundation. And it's coraline - tim burton? HELLO! AWESOME!! Bid for it on ebay: Item number: 400024924319
