Laika Entertainment (the animation studio behind Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Henry Selick’s Coraline adaptation) are back with another 3D stop-motion animated supernatural horror-comedy: ParaNorman, an original film written and co-directed by onetime storyboard artist Chris Butler, in collaboration with co-helmer Sam Fell (Flushed Away).

Judging by the buzz surrounding The Dark Knight Rises of late, you’d think the movie was due to hit theaters this Friday – as opposed to seven months (from the time of writing this).
Warner Bros. has begun to truly heighten anticipation for director Christopher Nolan’s third Batman movie – between the initiation of the film’s viral marketing campaign, a press screening of the Dark Knight Rises prologue, and the release of an ominous poster that is all the more intriguing for fans who are familiar with the shared comic book history of the Caped Crusader and his main opponent in Dark Knight Rises: the terrorist Bane (Tom Hardy).
