Second poster for Laika’s stop motion animated movie ParaNorman
is now online.
It comes from the team behind Coraline
and The Corpse Bride
. Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) stars as Norman. Other actors lending their voices to the proceedings include Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, John Goodman, Casey Affleck, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
In the comedy thriller, 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, moronic 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.
Directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell (Flushed Away), ParaNorman will be released on August 17th, 2012.
