A promotional clip has been released for Coraline, the upcoming movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book. The writer is helping to the promotion of the movie. In the clip below he dwells on Koumpounophobia, the phobia of buttons:
The story of Coraline is about a young girl who finds a secret door and discovers an alternate version of her life on the other side. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life and the people in it – only much better although they’ve got buttons instead of eyes… But when this seemingly perfect world turns dangerous, and her other parents (including her Other Mother voiced by Teri Hatcher) try to trap her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination and bravery to escape this increasingly perilous world – and save her family.
