From the moment I walked out of Henry Selick's Coraline in early 2009 I began anticipating the next movie from Laika Entertainment. Selick's film was not only thrilling and creepy, but was absolutely beautiful (and one of the best pre-Avatar examples of amazing 3D). Hence my anticipation for ParaNorman. Produced by Laika and directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell, the movie has yet to release a single image or trailer - as it's not coming out until August of next year - but today that streak is broken.

The first teaser poster for ParaNorman has been sent out online. Check it out below or full size over on Yahoo!

This is a fantastic teaser. Sure, it doesn't really show us much, but it does establish an aesthetic and gives us our first glimpse at the main character (that hair is totally killer too). I also can't help but love that font, which reminds me of Tim Burton before he started making movies like Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Featuring the voices of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, John Goodman, Jeff Garlin, Leslie Mann, Casey Affleck, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, ParaNorman is about a young boy named Norman who has the ability to speak with all forms of the undead, including both zombies and ghosts. When an ancient curse threatens his entire town, it falls to Norman to save the day. Look for the movie when it hits theaters on August 17, 2012.
