‘Monster Truck’ Trailer: Lucas Till Meets A Monster Truck Named Creech
  |  @   |  

Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Chris Wedge‘s Monster Truck. And it is exactly like it sounds. It’s a monster in a truck. If that doesn’t sound special or like something that might appeal to you, then you should know that this is one of the films that Paramount predicts they will lose money on. But maybe, just maybe, this is something that will surprise us all. But judging by the way it looks, don’t be surprised if you hear a lot of negative things about it.

Take a look at the trailer here below.

  |  

ParaNorman

Directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler
Starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jodelle Micah Ferland, Tucker Albrizzi, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Goodman
Focus Features
Originally Released: August 03, 2012

The surprisingly good venture into the macabre and demonic in the stop-motion animated film known as ParaNorman is full of both frights and laughs, in a tale that finishes up being as endearing as it is exciting.

The story begins in the small town of Blithe Hollow, where Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is ostracized by family members and peers alike because of his unusual ability: he can see the dead and speak with them. Very few believe in Norman’s abilities, except for his mysterious Uncle Prenderghast (John Goodman), who has been watching the boy from afar.

  |  @   |  

Putting together a full-length stop-motion animated feature is perhaps the most tedious thing to watch. Every movement has to be just right, it may be a long process, but it will all pay off in the end. So now a new featurette for ParaNorman shows just how important it is to get things right. Check out the video below.

The production process for a stop-motion animated feature is just amazing.

But if you’re of the group that just loves these behind-the-scenes footage, then I suggest you watch the video below.
