Check out this first great teaser trailer for the stop-motion animated zombie film ParaNorman. The movie comes from Laika, which is the same stop-motion animation studio that developed Coraline. Chris Butler (Coraline storyboard supervisor) wrote and will co-direct the film with Sam Fell (The Tale of Despereaux, Flushed Away).
I love the trailer that was released and this looks like it's going to be a hell of great movie. I love the look and feel of the film, and it has a fun entertaining story.
When a small town comes under siege by zombies, who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, 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.
The voice cast includes, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, The Road) in the lead, with Casey Affleck, Tempestt Bledsoe, Jeff Garlin, John Goodman, Bernard Hill (Titanic), Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Elaine Stritch (30 Rock).
The film doesn't come out until August 17th 2012, but you can check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
