ParaNorman Poster: World exclusive first look

[brightcove]1542765822001[/brightcove]

ParaNorman had our hearts from its very first trailer (opens in new tab) , so we're really excited to be able to reveal the world exclusive first look at the UK poster.

Headed for our shores on 14 September, this stop-motion Shaun Of The Dead -alike follows young Norman as he attempts to save his school pals (and himself!) from the advancing hoardes of a zombie invasion.

The UK poster emphasises the action, landing us face-first into a car chase in progress; you can practically hear the the screams, screeches and undead groans.

But look closely and you'll see a nice bit of character work too - while everyone else around him has a face contorted with terror, little Norman has a calm, confident air of a true hero.

We really can't wait for this one. Check out the poster below, watch the trailer above, and tell us what you think!
