New Trailer for the Animated Zombie Film PARANORMAN

Am awesome new trailer has been released for the the great looking stop-motion animated zombie film ParaNorman. The movie was created by the stop motion animation studio Laika, which is the same studio that developed Coraline. ParaNorman was written and directed by Coraline storyboard supervisor Chris Butler and Sam Fell (The Tale of DespereauxFlushed Away).

I think this movie looks awesomely entertaining, and there's no doubt my kids are going to love it. For some reason they are obsessed with Zombies and this is a zombie film they can actually watch. My kids are the kind of kids that cry because I tell them they aren't allowed to watch The Walking Dead. It's crazy! Anyway, I'm excited to see this movie, it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun, and I love the style. 

The voice cast includes, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me InThe Road) in the lead, with Casey AffleckTempestt BledsoeJeff GarlinJohn GoodmanBernard Hill (Titanic), Anna KendrickLeslie MannChristopher Mintz-Plasse, and Elaine Stritch (30 Rock). 

Here's the synopsis:

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. 

Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think! The movie wont be released until August 21th 2012.
