First Trailer for Director Tim Burton's Frankenweenie
03.01.12 by Ryan
Director Tim Burton has two movies set to release this year — May's adaptation of the Dark Shadows TV show and October's stop-motion animated Frankenweenie. For whatever reason, Frankenweenie is the first to have its trailer released.
Based on Burton's own 1984 short of the same name and borrowing liberally from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Frankenweenie follows a young boy named Victor, who who loses his beloved dog in a fatal accident and decides to bring Sparky back using the reanimation process Shelley created for her infamous creature. Burton's first animated movie since 2005's Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie features the voice talents of Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, and Martin Landau.
