Still from Paranorman

It’s been a busy weekend for trailers. We already brought you a first peek at the new clip for Men in Black III, but that was just the beginning. Read on for a chance to see some of the newest clips creating buzz in Hollywood.

If you ever wondered what would happen if someone made The Sixth Sense as a 3D cartoon, then this new trailer for ParaNorman might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Featuring the voice talents of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, and John Goodman (along with countless others…), this preview looks like a sort of kid-friendly take on Shyamalan’s classic chiller.

Norman (Smit-McPhee) can talk to the dead, so when his town comes under attack by zombies and other paranormal monsters, it’s up to him to save the day. The clip looks entertaining enough – especially for kids (and adults) who like a little horror to go along with their humor. ParaNorman will shamble into theaters next August.

The sales trailer for Zhang Yimou’s The Flowers of War didn’t do a particularly good job of explaining what the film was about to western audiences. Luckily, this new domestic trailer, released in preparation for the film’s limited release later this month, is a much more coherent piece that has us even more excited about checking out the film.

Christian Bale stars in the film as an American who takes responsibility for a group of girls and women who wind up hiding in a church during the siege of Nanking in WWII. The film is the most expensive ever produced in China and is the country’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the upcoming Academy Awards. Judging from the trailer, it’s certainly got a shot at winning one of the little gold men. Don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself below.

The Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross soundtrack for David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is out now, and it features a cover of the Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” performed by Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

If that sounds like something you might enjoy, the folks at Pitchfork have got you covered. Check it out below and enjoy. Also of note: Parts of this make up the film's opening credits sequence.
