Coraline is the stop-motion animated feature film of Neil Gaiman's novel. It is directed by Henry Selick and released by Focus Features. It's about a little girl who discovers an alternate reality in her home that is like a more interesting mirror image of her real life. The trailer looks really good. It's nice to see stop-motion animation like was done in The Nightmare Before Christmas. The effects were apparently all done by hand with miniature sets.
