not scary enough. It's captures a lot of the story essences but I don't feel it's gritty or scary enough. HAs anyone read the book?

Here is the Teaser Trailer.

But do we really need the narrator (La Fontain?) reading out all the title cards? Or is it just to help us with the proper pronunciation of peoples names?

That's not Dan La Fonatine, and I don't get why he can't read out the cards? Don't most trailers do this anyway...!?

Its no big deal.
But isn't either a voice over or title cards an easier option. It just seems patronising.

Borders Media has an excellent new Coraline trailer that seems inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's trailer for The Birds. In the video, author Neil Gaiman explains Koumpounophobia, the fear of buttons.

That was interesting.....

I just read the book, and now I'm getting very excited to see the film!
I imagine this will be a very fun film to see in 3D ^___^

This movie looks cool and better yet in my point of view its made with claymation/stop-motion. I am a fan of Stop-motion so this looks good.{Along with the friday the 13th remake}

I've been seeing several ads for it on television and I can't wait to finally see it. It looks like it will be good.

I can't get this song out of my head:



The TV spots for Coraline have been atmospheric and mysterious. When I first saw the TV spot with that song, I thought, unlike the other Coraline ads, it was energetic and jovial. Then I heard the song online and paid attention to the lyrics...
Making up a song about Coraline.
She's a peach. She's a doll.
She's a pal of mine.
She's as cute as a button
In the eyes of everyone
Who ever laid their eyes on Coraline.
When she comes around exploring,
Mom and I will never, ever make it boring.
Our eyes will be on Coraline.


(As the film's trailer shows, Coraline's "Other Mother," who has buttons on her eyes, wants to sew buttons on Coraline's eyes as well.)
