Coraline.. me want to see..

Just browsing on some flickr friends' blogs and I found this..
A movie from the director of Nightmare Before Christmas.. another dark fantasy movie based on a novel by British author Neil Gaiman (published in 2002), Coraline.

I think I'm gonna like it ('^,)* I really want to see.. and it stars Dakota Fanning as Coraline!! sip deh!! I really like the girl since the serial, Taken. Two thumbs up for her!!!

I wonder.. ada ga ya DVD nya disini.. the movie was released on February 2009, but I haven't seen it yet.. when I googled it up, it's supposed to be released in Indo around June 13th.
Oh well, kalah ama Wolverine, Terminator and Drag Me to Hell I guess, haha..
Although it is animated, but horror is not something kids want to see.. by the way, I'm waiting for Ice Age 3 and Up too.. hehehe..

This is the oficial trailer..

The HD one is a bit more scarry.. BOO!! haha..

and a little plot of the story..
Coraline Jones is a girl of 11 who is feisty, curious, and adventurous beyond her years. She and parents have just relocated from Michigan to Oregon. Missing her friends and finding her parents to be distracted by their work, Coraline tries to find some excitement in her new environment. She is befriended--or, as she sees it, is annoyed--by a local boy close to her age, Wybie Lovat and visits her older neighbors, eccentric British actresses Miss Spink and Forcible as well as the arguably even more eccentric Russian Mr. Bobinsky. After these encounters, Coraline seriously doubts that her new home can provide anything truly intriguing to her, but it does; she uncovers a secret door in the house. Walking through the door and then venturing through an eerie passageway, she discovers an alternate version of her life and existence. On the surface, this parallel reality is similar to her real life--only much better. The adults, including the solicitous Other Mother, seem much more welcoming to her. Coraline is more the center of attention there--even from the mysterious Cat. She begins to think that this Other World might be where she belongs. But when her wondrously off-kilter, fantastical visit turns dangerous and Other Mother schemes to keep her there, Coraline musters all of her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home--and save her family.
Interested? Me? YES, obviously.. hope to find the DVD to add the collection too.. ('^,)*
