'Coraline' Trailer Wins

Maybe I'm just a sucker for dark but quirky, masterfully-executed stop-motion animation, but I'm thinking this new trailer for Henry Selick's Coraline adaptation makes it look really good. Perhaps not quite as visually-arrested as The Nightmare Before Christmas, which I still watch religiously every year near Halloween, but charming nonetheless. I'll probably relegate this to being watched every year on a lesser holiday. Which would work best for a movie where a girl travels through a Being John Malkovich-style portal to a parallel world that at first seems nice but eventually gets threatening when her fake mom wants her to sew buttons over her eyes? Probably like a Flag Day.
