As those who have watched or listened to this week’s AMC For Your Consideration Podcast know, I am a huge fan of the upcoming stop-motion animation zombie comedy from Focus Features: “ParaNorman”.

The film opens this Friday and it’s not one you are going to want to miss so make sure to purchase your tickets HERE.

We had the opportunity to sit down with co-directors Chris Butler and Sam Fell as well as two of the stars of the voice cast, Kodi Smit-McPhee (ParaNorman himself) and the hilarious and lovely Leslie Mann (who voices Norman’s mom Sandra in the film), to talk about the unique blend of humor, heart and fun-filled horror that is “ParaNorman”.

Take a look at the video interviews below.

Meanwhile, the final trailer for the animated adventure has been released. Take a look below!


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 (voiced by 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.

Sam Fell and Chris Butler direct a cast that includes Casey Affleck, Tempestt Bledsoe, Alex Borstein, Jodelle Ferland, John Goodman, Bernard Hill, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Elaine Stritch from a script by Chris Butler.

Purchase your tickets for "ParaNorman" HERE.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
