1. Harry Knowles received one of the 500 Bobinsky-trained circus mice that were made for Coraline. He's posted a photo here.
2. Coraline comes out the same week as Pink Panther 2, the boring, safe choice to take a child to.
If I was responsible for promoting the movie, I'd contact every mommy blogger I could find and tell them:
Sick of movies about princesses looking for their prince? Coraline is from Newbery Award-winning author Neil Gaiman and Henry Selick, the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas. It tells the tale of a young girl who must rely on her own intelligence and courage as she journeys to a magical world and discovers it's far more dangerous than she imagined. She triumphs over adversity and even discovers that her boring old parents aren't so bad after all.3. Finally, here's a particularly creepy self-portrait inspired by Coraline. (Thanks, Laura.)
