Cheapest I've ever seen this fantastic film on BluRay and elsewhere it's around £10 to £20.

As covetous children are often warned: 'Be careful what you wish for'. It's this very cautionary wisdom that sets the stage for Henry Selick’s Coraline, an eerily eye-popping stop-motion animation tale of fractured dreams and families made whole. As the films opens, Coraline Jones (voiced by Dakota Fanning) and her parents (Teri Hatcher, John Hodgman) have moved into the Pink Palace, a once-vibrant boarding house that's turned drab and dilapidated. As her parents work feverishly on a new gardening catalog, the bored and belligerent Coraline is admonished to explore her new world's possibilities. Along the way she meets her fellow tenants, including two aging English showgirls and a mouse-training Russian acrobat, as well as an outcast neighbourhood boy named Wybie. But it is a mysterious hidden door that most piques Coraline's interest - a gateway to a parallel world where her 'other' parents and neighbours live only to see Coraline well fed and endlessly entertained. All is not cakes and carnivals for Coraline, though, and the black buttons that have replaced the eyes of these otherworldly imitations hint at darker intentions. When these intentions are revealed, Cora and a friendly magical cat use their wits and willpower to defeat Coraline's wicked 'other mother' and restore balance in the real world.

Based on Neil Gaiman’s beloved children’s novel, director Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) uses the stop-motion technique to bring Coraline to life with amazing visual and emotional depth. The result is a frightfully magical adventure that will give the whole family plenty to shriek, cheer, and talk about.

Does anyone know if there's a 3DTV version with this lot, or only the cardboard specs version? Thanks

Cardboard specs with this one.

Cardboard specs with this one.



Thought so. There is a few on eBay that are 3D Blu Ray versions and have slightly different covers. (released with Panasonic packages?)

This whole 3D thing is really confusing! Have just bought a 3D TV and struggle to know what's worth buying to make the most out of it.

Hey, the full 3d version (for 3d tv's) has like a yellowy cover with coraline crawling on the front of it (looks like crawling...) this is part of a panasonic promotion so is meant to be exclusive, so you will only really see that on e-bay and not on any sites like zavvi,play etc untill its fully released. At the moment the general release on blu-ray is the one in this thread which you have to wear the paper/card specs with, totally different type of 3d. If you have a 3d tv and blu ray player youd be better off with the one you've seen around on ebay, I think they go for between £10-15, or look on AVforums.

some versions (2 disc normal & 3d combined) have a "lenticular" cover which I think is what MunkiMadz is trying to say..

On my projector the 3d isn't too good (maybe me) however the film is excellent so I regularly watch the 2d with my Burton obsessed daughter.

Thanks for the help guys. While I'm here, can anyone recommend a decent site listing all the 3DTV release films and games?

I've found a couple, but they are quite dated, and mix "paper glasses" 3D films in as well, which makes it even more confusing!

Eldre, probably best to look into AV forums on a google search, they're bound to have one on a constant update..

Great film at a great price. Thanks.

I'm the same.,

So does this not work better on a 3d tv then ?

Great price - got it from Amazon for £9.50 a few months ago. 3D effect is OK with glasses, not brilliant but wouldn't complain at £7

No, there is a seperate release of this film for 3D TVs - which is available as part of the panasonic promotion at the moment, at a later point no doubt it will be fully released.

The film is good, the 3D is rubbish.

Nice hot

Saw this at the cinema in 3d and it was dreadful but in 2d on the telly it's an amazing film.

All 3D is rubbish though so it shouldn't be a surprise

Banned

3D was great for Avatar and Horror Films, but I don't see the fascination with a film like this in 3D. It was perfect in 2D!

will this have the lenticular cover?

It's not a Tim Burton movie though. It was directed by Henry Selick.

God, I'm so pedantic.

Incidentally, the 3D is utterly dreadful. We got about 10 minutes in and had to swap the DVD over for the 2D version. It really is THAT bad.
