The first official poster for Henry Selick’s soon to be masterpiece, Coraline, showed up over the weekend and you can see it in all its subtle wonder below. I’m guessing this is just early art and a more telling poster will be put out as we get closer to the film’s February release date.
Now this is what I call a well-stacked site! Sure it may not be the most spooky of places right off the bat, but the official Coraline site has got a lot of goodies to explore and eventually you’re bound to find something that gives you the chills.
The lucky bastards over at IGN got a chance to visit the set of Henry Selick’s upcoming 3D stop motion animation feature Coraline, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, and returned with some pretty impressive images.
