The more of Paranorman I see, the more I need August to happen already. It reminds me of the kinds of movies Tim Burton was making before he got all doughy and soft in body and mind. It’s got a weird sense of humor, some darkness in the face of an otherwise light-seeming picture, and it’s got such a great off-kilter sense of design. Seriously, look at it! Everything looks fantastic! Also, it’s stop motion, and as an animation student in recovery, I’ll always go out of my way to see professional-grade stop motion animation.
Paranorman is out August 17th.[Via Apple Trailers]
