"You don't become a hero by being normal." Focus Features and Laika (stop-motion studio behind Corpse Bride and Coraline) have unveiled their first teaser poster on Yahoo for the new stop-motion animation movie ParaNorman, which will also get a first trailer on Friday this week. We'll have to wait until then to really see him, as for now we get a from-the-back first look at Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), a misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead, takes on ghosts, zombies and moronic grown-ups to save his town from a centuries-old curse. Certainly looks like something mysterious is out there. In full 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.

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 hit theaters on August 17th, 2012 late next summer.

Seeing how one is a first-time director, I don't think your comment is valid.
