Well, wouldn't you want to bring back man's best friend?
Frankenweenie has been given a trailer, which checks all the boxes of the Tim Burton trademark style. The movie is a 3D remake of his 1984 black-and-white stop motion-animated short film of the same name. Like the 1984 film, it is a parody and homage to the 1931 film Frankenstein based on Mary Shelley's book. In Frankenweenie, a boy sets about using science to bring his faithful pet back to life. However, Sparky gets loose and starts causing trouble around the town.
Frankenweenie stars Charlie Tahan as Victor Frankenstien alongside Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara and Martin Short. It’s a little tongue-in-cheek to say, but Johnny Depp has not been added to the cast just yet. The film will be released on October 5th 2012.
