"There's something you really need to know - the witches curse is REAL!" Support stop-motion animation! Especially outstanding, independently-made stop-motion animation. Focus Features has debuted one final online-only trailer for ParaNorman, their outstandingly charming horror stop-motion comedy in theaters this week. Go see it. It's so damn good. I totally loved it, so did Jeremy, and I'm posting this just so I can tell everyone how awesome it is and remind them that it's out in theaters everywhere this weekend. Kodi Smit-McPhee voices Norman, the rest you'll have to discover when you catch this in theaters. It's worth it!
Norman, a boy who's able to speak with the dead, has to take on zombies, ghosts, witches and, worst of all, grown-ups, to save his small town from a centuries-old curse. The voice cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Chris Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin and John Goodman.
ParaNorman is being directed by Sam Fell (director on The Tale of Despereaux and Flushed Away) & Chris Butler (storyboard on Coraline and Corpse Bride). The original screenplay is by Chris Butler. Stop-motion animation studio Laika is producing out of Portland, OR, with Focus Features distributing. ParaNorman is currently set to land in theaters in 3D starting August 17th this summer.
