Hey, everyone. “Moriarty” here. We’re probably the last out of the gate of the 26 partners who were part of this very groovy CORALINE promotion today, so it seems perversely fitting that we’re the ones premiering the very first letter of the alphabet. That’s right... there are 26 new teaser images for Henry Selick’s adaptation of the Neil Gaiman fantasy novel CORALINE that are landing online today, and each one is oriented around a different letter of the alphabet. All of this is designed to bring the brand new official site to your attention, since it just went live with a ton of new content. And what, pray tell, is CORALINE about? “From Henry Selick, visionary director of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, and based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling book, comes a spectacular stop-motion animated adventure – the first to be originally filmed in 3D! Coraline Jones (Dakota Fanning) is bored in her new home until she finds a secret door and discovers an alternate version of her life on the other side. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life and the people in it – only much better. But when this seemingly perfect world turns dangerous, and her other parents (including her Other Mother voiced by Teri Hatcher) try to trap her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination and bravery to escape this increasingly perilous world – and save her family.”
And here’s our premiere image. If you’re looking for the other 25, that official site is the place to start your search. Gorgeous stuff, and after seeing the presentation at Butt-Numb-A-Thon, I’m eager to get a look at the finished picture in the New Year.

Thanks to Focus Films for including us in this one.
