Opening This Week: Coraline

There’s a relatively small movie opening in Irish theatres this weekend alongside Star Trek that might be worth a look for those who can’t tell their Romulans from their Klingons. It’s called Coraline and it’s a stop-motion fairytale from the guy who directed The Nightmare Before Christmas (that’s Henry Selick, not Tim Burton – contrary to popular believe) and from the pen of Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Mirror Mask).

I’ve yet to see it – the summer blockbuster season is becoming as crowded as the January awards season, dammit – but the reviews are hugely positive, pointing to a sleeper hit that will likely develop a cult following. From what I hear, if space battles and franchise reboots aren’t for you, this could be worth a look.
