Was very anticipated with the movie ever since i saw the trailer in the cinema while watching UP last month. The very first impression the movie gave me was “The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
So, i brought my friend along for the preview after work last night, and we’re extremely looking forward to it. Here’s a short synopsis of the movie.
Based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling book and helmed by “The Nightmare Before Christmas” director Henry Selick, – is the first high definition, stop-motion animated feature to be shot in 3-D. In the film, a young girl (voiced by Dakota Fanning) walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when this wondrously off-kilter, fantastical adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit other mother (voiced by Teri Hatcher]) tries to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her stubborn determination, bravery, and the aid of her neighbors and a talking black cat to save her real parents and some ghost children and get back home.
