coraline sneak peek

If you hadn't noticed his blog on my links list to the left, then it might come as a surprise to you that I am a huge Neil Gaiman fan. Over the years, he's done more and more movie work, from penning the English translation for "Princess Mononoke" to writing the screenplay for last year's "Beowulf", but it's only very recently that his own published work has been showing up on the silver screen. Last year we had "Stardust", and in February 2009 we'll get "Coraline".

"Coraline" is something pretty incredible on its own, as it's Henry Selick's (of "Nightmare Before Christmas" fame) first feature length film in 15 years (since "James and the Giant Peach"). And lucky us, Rotten Tomatoes is showing exclusive videos from the set plus clips of Coraline all week long. Here's the first one, featuring interviews with Neil, Henry Selick, Ian McShane (anyone a Deadwood or, uh, Lovejoy fan?), and John Hodgeman (the PC in the "Get a Mac" commercials, plus his book? Hilarious).

Alright, that's all I'm going to say on the matter. Found this out via Neil's ever informative blog.
