LAIKA's 'ParaNorman' Returns To US Cinemas For November 16 Event Screening


This year marks the 15th anniversary of stop-motion specialists LAIKA Studios. To celebrate the milestone LAIKA teamed up with distributors Shout Factory to release new special editions of their first four film on Blu-Ray combo-pack earlier this year. Shout Factory and Fathom Events are also teaming up to bring the films back to US cinemas for one-night-only event screenings.

The season already kicked off with Coraline, and next up is their second feature ParaNorman which will screen on November 16, along with exclusive bonus material offering behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the film.

The film will screen at participating locations at 3:00P PM and 7:00 PM local time. Find a screening near you and bag your tickets from Fathom's website.

PARANORMAN features a stellar voice cast including 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. PARANORMAN was produced by Arianne Sutner and Travis Knight, written by Chris Butler, and directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler. 


The comedy thriller’s story centers on a small town 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.
