Laika Entertainment has debuted the second full length trailer for the upcoming 3D stop-motion animated supernatural horror-comedy: ParaNorman
Directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell (Flushed Away), and starring the voices of Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air), John Goodman (Monsters, Inc.), Leslie Mann (Knocked Up), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad), Casey Affleck (Ocean’s Eleven), Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and Elaine Stritch (30 Rock), ParaNorman
follows a young misfit (Smit-McPhee) with a very special talent who must save his town from an age-old curse.
In the film, a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (Kodi Smit-McPhee), 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. Following LAIKA’s groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated animated feature Coraline, ParaNorman is only the second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D.
ParaNorman will open in 2D and 3D theaters around the U.S. on August 17th, 2012.
