Coraline Trailer Online
First peek at Henry Selick's latest

Rejoice and be glad, because here is the first full trailer for Coraline, the new film from A Nightmare Before Christmas' Henry Selick, from the book by Neil Gaiman. And it looks just as gross, scary, beautiful and funny as expected.

The story sees young Coraline go through a door in her house to a magical world, where her Other Mother and Other Father are much more fun than the real thing. But she comes to realise that all is not well in the Other world, and when her own parents are kidnapped it's up to Coraline to save them.

The film's out here on May 15 next year, so mark the date in your diaries now.

RE: looks okay..but
While the animation's not as refined as Selick's other stuff (that shot with Coraline squashing the bugs looks...wrong...), the fact that it's based on a Gaiman story alone will be enough to get me to the cinema to see this. I mean, hey, if Selick can get a great-sounding against-type performance out of The Hatcher, then it must be good, right? More

looks okay..but
The animation looks good, but the lighting... really isn't as good as it ought to be and seems to say ' student film' far more than polished studio animation. Visually it doesn't have the richness of Nightmare before Christmas or Corpse Bride. The design isn't really as sharp as Selick's other ventures either, although it 's definitely in the same family. Still, the trailer wasn't great quality resolution-wise, so I'll keep my fingers crossed. More

Looks fun but why isn't Gaiman credited? More

Brilliant
Looks like this will have the same great depth in characters as Nightmare Before Christmas. The animation is excellent and the storyline is as always, original. What not to Love? More

Sweet
Coraline looks to continue the quality that Sellick created with A Nightmare Before Christmas. It maybe too close of tone and look to AKBC for Coraline to stand alone, but if it's an enjoyable trip to the screen it won't matter. Now an Amereican Gods film from the Neil Gaiman back catalogue please. Not a stop motion but a live action (although stop motion as part of the sfx would be cool). More
