Yesterday to deal with the heat a friend of mine wanted to take his family to the theaters. He asked me what was out for kids. I had to ponder that for a few minutes and I said, Brave and Madagascar 3 and something called the Olgolvies or something like that. Not much to choose from considering he’s seen Brave and the other one just seems weird. So I’m really excited that new children’s movies are on their way starting with ParaNorman which is now in theaters. ParaNorman is a new stop-motion comedy thriller in 3D that looks great for kids that like things that are unusual and different and zombies of course.
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.
