New 'ParaNorman' trailer reveals more plote details

Our friends over at Screen Rant (via MSN), showed off the new ParaNorman trailer which offers a little more in the way of details and supporting characters. The 3-D stop-motion animated film by Laika Entertainment is a kid-friendly horror-comedy about a kid who talks with the dead and uses these talents to battle undead creatures and to break a curse that plagues his town.

Although the teaser which hit in October (set to the tune of Donovan's "Season of the Witch") was cooler and moodier, this trailer does tell us more about the film that Screen Rant reports is "an original film written and co-directed by onetime storyboard artist Chris Butler, in collaboration with co-helmer Sam Fell," who previously collaborated on Coraline and Corpse Bride.

ParaNorman hits theaters Aug. 17, 2012, and features the voices of Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air), John Goodman (Monsters, Inc.), Leslie Mann (Knocked Up), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad), Casey Affleck (Ocean’s Eleven), Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and Elaine Stritch (30 Rock).
