Video Interview: PARANORMAN Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Anna Kendrick & Kodi Smit-McPhee

PARANORMAN may just be one of the most imaginative films you’ll see this year, and outside of the brilliant visuals, audiences will also be treated to a spectacular voice cast. We caught up with principal stars Kodi Smit-McPhee (who plays Norman Babcock), Anna Kendrick (who plays Courtney) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (who plays Alvin) while at San Diego Comic-Con 2012. I’ve talked to Chris and Anna before, so I knew they were fun and laid back, and it was great to chat with Kodi – who is extremely talented. I mention in the interview how all three come from “horror” backgrounds, Chris having done the FRIGHT NIGHT remake, Kodi having done LET ME IN, and Anna having done… TWILIGHT. Okay, so maybe that’s a stretch, but we had fun with it. Check out the interviews below, see the movie in theaters now, and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

PARANORMAN opens August 17. 2012
