ParaNorman release tomorrow in the US of A, while we still have to wait a few months to see it released locally. It old school stop-motion animation with a touch of new school, and the final trailer for the film is not helping me stave off the urge to hop onboard a flight and go catch a midnight screening of it.
Thanks mostly, to John Goodman releasing his best Colonel Sanders impression to help sell the film.
The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company LAIKA, reteaming the company with Focus Features after the groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated “Coraline.” “ParaNorman” is, following “Coraline,” the company’s second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D. In “ParaNorman,” a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
