LAIKA Studios has partnered with Fathom Events to re-release beloved films Coraline and ParaNorman, along with never-before-seen bonus content, like animation test footage (CORALINE) and a behind-the-scenes tour of LAIKA Studios (PARANORMAN)!
CORALINE can kick off the Halloween season for you, with a one-day special screening in select theaters on August 24.
Directed by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) and based on the novel by Neil Gaiman (Sandman), CORALINE follows the titular character as she 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 parents try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to save her family and get back home.
The voice cast includes Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, Ian McShane, Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French. Produced by Henry Selick, Claire Jennings, Bill Mechanic and Mary Sandell. Written for the screen and directed by Henry Selick.
PARANORMAN arrives not long after Halloween, to wrap up the spooky festivities, as it hits (select) theaters again on November 16.
Directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell, PARANORMAN is a comedy thriller, in which a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can the town call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse.
But this young ghoul-whisperer bravely summons up all that makes a hero – courage and compassion – as he finds his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
Voice Cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, Elaine Stritch, Bernard Hill, Jodelle Ferland, Tempestt Bledsoe, Alex Borstein, and John Goodman. Produced by Arianne Sutner, Travis Knight. Written by Chris Butler. Directed by Sam Fell, Chris Butler.
