New UK Trailer for ParaNorman Has Zombies the Whole Family Will Love
12.13.11 by Ryan
The teaser trailer for the upcoming, stop-motion animated, 3-D movie ParaNorman dazzled us with its surreal images of zombies, ghosts and toilet paper creatures, all scored with Donovan's "Season of the Witch". But the latest trailer, released by MSN UK, makes an even stronger case for why ParaNorman is a must-see next August by displaying some of the movie's story and humor.
Norman (voiced by Let Me In's Kodi Smit-McPhee) is just your average kid who just happens to be able to speak to the dead, including his own grandmother. However, when zombies come out of the ground to attack his small Massachusetts town, Norman is called upon to save it from its evil curse. In this trailer, it's easier to see how animated zombie movie could actually be enjoyable for the whole family to watch.
ParaNorman is only the second stop-motion animated movie to be released in 3-D, after 2009's Coraline, which makes sense since the same animation studio, LAIKA, worked on both movies. Directed by The Tale of Despereaux's Sam Fell and Chris Butler (storyboard supervisor on Coraline) from a script by Butler. The voice cast includes Casey Affleck, John Goodman, Tempestt Bledsoe, Jeff Garlin and Leslie Mann.
