This week, Paranorman was released by Focus Features in theaters all over the country!  I don’t know about you, but my kids and my boyfriend’s kids really want to see this movie.  Ok, so even I want to see it!

ABOUT THE FILM

The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company LAIKA, reteaming the company with Focus Features after the groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated Coraline. ParaNorman is, following Coraline, the company’s second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D.

In ParaNorman, 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, 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.

Starring

Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, John Goodman, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Elaine Strich, Tempestt Bledsoe, Bernard Hill, Alex Borstein, Tucker Albrizzi

Directed By Sam Fell and Chris Butler
Written By Chris Butler
Screenplay By Chris Butler
Produced By Arianne Sutner and Travis Knight

    One interesting thing about ParaNorman is that the digital aspects of the film was seamlessly combined with more traditional stop-motion parts of the film. I couldn’t tell if it was CGI or pure stop-motion, that’s exciting.
