New ParaNorman Trailer Debuts
Laika, the studio behind the stop-motion adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, and Universal Pictures have premiered the second trailer for its 3D-animated comedy thriller ParaNorman.
Directed by Sam Fell (Flushed Away, The Tale of Despereaux) and Chris Butler from a script by Butler, ParaNorman centers on a misunderstood boy named Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) who can speak with the dead. When his small town is overrun by zombies, Norman will have to take on the walking dead, witches, ghosts and, worst of all, grown-ups, to save the residents from a centuries-old curse.
Opening Aug. 17, the movie also features the voices of Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Goodman, Elaine Stritch, Bernard Hill, Alex Borstein and Tempestt Bledsoe.
