Stop-motion genius Henry Selick directed the modern classics The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, and aquatic life stuff from The Life Aquatic; Neil Gaiman wrote Stardust and The Sandman comic series, a paperback manifestation of Cure songs; They Might Be Giants has provided geeks with their own brand of catchy rock music for over 20 years, allowing some to finally part with their Weird Al CDs.

So a triumvirate of the three, working together to adapt Gaiman's novella Coraline, should at least be decent, right? (We'll ignore that Teri Hatcher has a leading role.)

See a 40-second scene preview, under the cut.
