Have you ever wished for a different life? That's what this newest trailer for Coraline asks. But be careful what you wish for! I've been trying to hold off on running anything new from Coraline recently just because I'm waiting to actually see the film tomorrow. Once I've watched it, I'm sure I'll have a lot more to say, because right now, all I can say is that I really want to see it. This latest trailer shows us a lot more new footage and it still looks great. I'm not the biggest Nightmare Before Christmas fan, but something about this seems like a throwback to that film with so many more new twists. Can't wait to check it out!
Watch the new internet trailer for Henry Selick's Coraline:
Coraline Jones (Dakota Fanning) is bored in her new home until she finds a secret door and discovers an alternate version of her life on the other side. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life and the people in it -- only much better. But when this seemingly perfect world turns dangerous, and her other parents try to trap her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination and bravery to escape this increasingly perilous world -- and save her family.
Coraline is both written and directed by Henry Selick, the visionary filmmaker behind the other stop animation movies Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, and Monkeybone. The film is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's young adult book of the same name. Focus Features is debuting Coraline in both regular and 3-D movie theaters everywhere on February 6th, 2009. See you there!
