We’ve got a couple of new posters for you this evening. First up is the poster premiere for ParaNorman. The stop-motion animated film comes from the animation studio LAIKA (Coraline) and centers on a boy whose ability to commune with the dead when his town comes under siege from zombies, ghosts, witches, moronic grown-ups, and a centuries-old curse. The poster is pretty fantastic, as it features the back of Norman’s head as he’s standing in a creepy forest. The voice cast includes Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In), Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, John Goodman, and Alex Borstein.
Additionally, and about as far from ParaNorman as you can get, is the first poster for Werner Herzog’s death row documentary Into the Abyss. The film documents Herzog’s interviews with two subjects, one who was executed for a triple homicide eight days after being filmed by Herzog, and another who is serving a life sentence. The poster is chilling and effective, as it posits the theme of finality. Hit the jump to check out the posters. ParaNorman opens August 17th, 2012, and Into the Abyss opens November 11th.
