What has to be one of the stranger, more unique ways I've ever seen a movie marketed, Focus Features created a video featuring Coraline's art director Bo Henry and his ... dancing mustache? Oh yes, through the magic of stop-motion animation, we have a man with a very large mustache that dances in tune to the music being played. There's not much else to it. That's the video. And it must have taken some real patience on Henry's part while making this, since he needed to sit still with the same facial expression while everyone screwed with his mustache. I hold my cup of ice tea high in the air for you, my good man. Salute!
But on a related note, Coraline looks pretty good. Based on the book by Neil Gaiman and directed by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas), Coraline stars Dakota Fanning as a girl who walks through a secret door and finds and alternate version of her life where things are similar, but better. However, when her alternate parents try to keep her, Coraline must find a way back home before the life most important to her ceases to exist. It sounds trippy as all hell, and definitely worth a screening. Coraline hits theaters on February 6.
