CORALINE coming February 2009
Neil Gaiman's Novella "CORALINE" comes to the big screen
Neil Gaiman fans have something really nice to look forward to next year. CORALINE is being adapted into a stop-motion animated film, and is set to be released in theaters on February 6, 2009. BIG QUESTION though is if it would be released in Iloilo Cinemas... hopefully it will.
CORALINE is the story of a young girl who unlocks a mysterious door in her new home, and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality. On the surface, this other world eerily mimics her own life--though much more fantastical. In it, Coraline encounters such off-kilter inhabitants as the morbidly funny Miss Forcible and Miss Spink, and a counterfeit mother--who attempts to keep her. Ultimately, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home.
Dakota Fanning will star as the voice of Coraline. Teri Hatcher will lend her voice to the roles of both Coraline's Mother and her Other Mother. Ian McShane will voice Mr. Bobinski, a beet-eating Russian giant who lives upstairs from Coraline in her alternate reality. The soundtrack will be provided by the rock group They Might Be Giants. A new featurette with some behind-the-scene footage of Coraline has appeared online courtesy of IGN Movies.
