Coming Attraction: 'ParaNorman'


Have you seen these posters and billboards around town? They're everywhere! They're from Focus Features' new stop-motion animated film ParaNorman, which opens Aug. 17.

I am in such awe of stop-motion animation. We're big fans of Wallace & Gromit movies, and CC and I enjoyed Coraline (in fact, everyone kept calling her that when the movie came out a few years ago). It's amazing the kind of patience those artists must have.

This new kids' movie is from the makers of Coraline and, once again, delves into some relatively eerie subject matter (eerie, that is, in a PG way, which is what the film is rated). Norman, according to press notes, is a misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead, and he takes on ghosts, zombies and (gasp!) grown-ups in order to save his town from a centuries-old curse.

Some famous voices in the cast include John Goodman, Leslie Mann, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Here's the trailer, and right below a little peek inside the stop-motion magic.

My daughter's summer was quite brief due to LAUSD cutting its summer short. The premiere happens her first week back to school so would help with that transition! Plus she's particularly excited about this movie!
