A new and pretty lengthy international trailer has just arrived online for what looks to be the animation event of the year for horror fans -- Laika's ParaNorman (opening on August 17th). Check it out after the jump.

Here's the synopsis for ParaNorman: "The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company LAIKA, reteams the company with Focus Features after the groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated 'Coraline.'  'ParaNorman' is, following 'Coraline,' only the second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D. In 'ParaNorman,' a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he'll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits."
