900 theaters nationwide to present Henry Selick's "Coraline" in 3D; John Hodgman voices Coraline's Dad

Henry Selick, the director of the stop-motion animation classic, Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas has made the wise decision to cast John Hodgman as a voice artist for his new feature, Coraline, based on Neil Gaiman's book (if you're a comic book geek, that last reference will impress you. Sandman. There, I said it.)

Hodgmania has gripped America as a yearning nation turns towards its movie screens seeking respite from all the grim financial news of late. But can John Hodgman single-handedly turn the country around, giving it the uplift it so desperately desires? What a silly question. If he can't, no one can.

Oh, apparently this is also the first stop-motion feature to be shot entirely in 3D and blah, blah, blah. . .stereoscopic blah, blah, blah. . .

But John Hodgman. Wow!

For a more balanced take on this film, and one that only mentions John Hodgman in passing (!), go to the New York Times article, here.
