ParaNorman Trailer

"You don't become a hero by being normal." Focus Features has debuted the second official trailer on Apple for Laika's upcoming stop-motion animated film ParaNorman, the wacky fun horror flick, featuring the voice of Kodi Smit-McPhee as Norman. We've seen one teaser trailer and an international trailer for Chris Butler's original Laika project before, but this latest theatrical trailer explores a lot more of the story this time. And dangit, it just looks like completely mischievous, horrific, whimsical fun. I love that stop-motion animation still thrives, between this and Frankenweenie, there's a great year of animation ahead. Have fun!

Watch the second official trailer for Laika's ParaNorman, originally in high def from Apple:

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.

In. Loved Coraline, this looks great. And I'd love if my kid was not like all the other kids. All the other kids are d'bags.
