New PARANORMAN Trailer: You Don't Become a Hero by Being Normal

Hands down, one of the most anticipated films here at The Zed Word is the spooky, stop-motion animated PARANORMAN.


A misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead takes on ghosts and zombies in order to save his town from a centuries-old curse brought on by the ghost of a witch.
I'm going to be honest; I'm jealous as hell of Norman's Zombie Alarm Clock, as seen in this new expanded trailer, which -- incidentally --gives us plenty more of the plot and a taste of its quirky, dark humor.

Paranorman stars the voice talents of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, John Goodman, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Elaine Strich, Tempestt Bledsoe, Bernard Hill, and Alex Borstein. Directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler.
