There will be time to talk on this site about Anna Kendrick’s upcoming feature, the animated supernatural/zombie feature Paranorman. The picture, which centers on a kid (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who can talk to dead people, features Kendrick voicing the role of the kid’s annoying sister.  It opens on August 17th. But for now, let’s focus on why Anna Kendrick is awesome.
