More Love for "Coraline"

I am a huge fan of Neil Gaiman's novels (I know about the 'Sandman' graphic novels, but that's just not my thing). I adored his novel "Stardust" (and it's very underrated film adaptation) and his novels "American Gods" and "Anansi Boys" rank in my top-twenty. When I heard that his children's novel "Coraline" was being adapted as a 3D stop-motion film directed by Henry Selig (The Nightmare Before Christmas; James and the Giant Peach), I was excited. The first trailers were fun, and they gave the briefest glimpse into just how dark Gaimon's story is. Then I saw this trailer, from AICN (via):

My hopes are high for this one, folks.
More, anon.

Thanks for the comment, just wanted to let you know that I barely recognized Jennifer on Sienfeld last night. She was The Masseuse. It always amazes me that with so many channels how often you see the same actor in various roles at the same time.

I posted that clip on my FaceBook page. I just "heard" Ms. Coolidge in the terrible "Igor."
