“Coraline”, the stop-capture animation movie from the director of “A Nightmare Before Christmas” is hitting shelves today and to celebrate I’m giving away the screener copy I received to review. It’s the same copy you’d buy in the stores, just minus all that unwrapping hassle! You’re welcome.

Along with the movie’s release today there are a couple of other cool things to check out. First up is “Coraline’s 3-D Garden“. This augmented reality site allows users to view a 3-D digital image on their computer screen that appears in their own hands when used in tandem with a unique print out and webcam.

There’s also a Coraline movie memorabilia auction to benefit the Starlight Children’s Foundation. There are a lot of cool things in the charity auction, including limited edition Coraline Nike Dunks that were produced exclusively for the film (some have been signed by Dakota Fanning) and original Coraline books and film posters signed by Teri Hatcher and Dakota Fanning. Here is the link:
