PARANORMAN's Zombies Head To The Olympics!
A round of applause for Laika, please, who have just released what will probably be the best piece of Olympic tie in marketing that will be seen during these games. It seems that zombies like a good bit of athletic competition, too, and Laika have just released a pair of shorts featuring ParaNorman's undead creatures primed and ready for competition.
ParaNorman releases August 17th, check the new spots 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.
