Although there was a time when CG animation threatened to all-but obliterate all other non-live action formats, stop-motion has stood its ground and in fact delivered a good number of stand-out classics – Coraline, Fantastic Mr Fox, Curse of the Were-Rabbit and (by the looks of things) Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists have all brought top-drawer quality from the format.
If the trailers are to be believed (I know, I know) then ParaNorman looks like being another strong entry in this category, bringing some excellently creative gross bits with strong characterisation and stylistic flourishes all its own. IMPA, always a strong source for posters, have got a new international poster for ParaNorman and although that “RealD 3D” logo is a little dispiriting, the colour palate and ghoulish underworld creatures are delightful enough to overcome that minor quibble.
Do please go ahead and enjoy the poster below and by all means catch up on the rest of our posts about ParaNorman as well. They are right here. Right. Here.
