Laika's "ParaNorman" coming August 17, 2012

Postby Charles » Mon Oct 31, 2011 9:57 am

ParaNorman is on the way.

It's an upcoming 3D stop-motion animated comedy thriller film produced by Laika of Portland, Oregon, and distributed by Focus Features. It's release date is August 17, 2012.

Featuring the voices of Casey Affleck, Tempestt Bledsoe, Jeff Garlin, John Goodman, Bernard Hill, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Elaine Stritch and Tucker Albrizzi among others.

In a small town that's under siege by zombies, only Norman, a misunderstood local boy who is able to speak with the dead, is able to rise to the challenge. In addition to the zombies, he'll have to take on ghosts, witches and grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse.

Here's the trailer. The music is cool...
