Just in time for Halloween, here’s a teaser for the stop-motion animated ParaNorman, from LAIKA and Focus Features, the partners that made and released the deliciously dark Coraline. Directed by Sam Fell (Flushed Away, The Tale of Despereaux) and Chris Butler (who also wrote the screenplay), it’s about a boy who speaks to the dead and is the only one who can save his town from a curse of zombies, witches, ghosts and grownups. Voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee (Norman), Tucker Albrizzi, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick and a bunch of other interesting people. It’s slated to open August 17, 2012. Enjoy!
