ParaNorman

"Nailed it." Some of you may be like me, addicted to watching Olympics updates every night, others not so much. For those who haven't seen these yet, both of them are very short, very fun TV spots for Laika's stop-motion animated movie ParaNorman, out in theaters soon. The spots feature two of the monsters from the movie, about a young kid who can see ghosts but everyone picks on him, doing some summer Olympics sports events. My favorite is the first one with the leader zombie guy on the pommel horse. I have a really good feeling this movie is amazing, and it's worth mentioning these spots. View both of 'em below!

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.

    I wonder if they paid the ridiculous Olympics tax they made up for people mentioning words like 'champion' over the summer. Looking forward to the film.
