First look at Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ Poster

First look at Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie' Poster

After Tim Burton’s recent Dark Shadows box office flop, he is trying his hand at a new animated comedy called “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. The first poster of the film is here and it looks like… ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ part 2. It’s Tim Burton‘s style so what do you expect. We hope to see a better follow up poster for the film, because this isn’t going to get me to the movie theater.

The premise focuses on a boy named Victor who after unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, he harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
 
A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience. That’s like seeing ‘The Artist’ in 3D.

A great voice cast was assembled: Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder. Tim Burton directs, produces and came up with the idea.
 
Actually, when he originally conceived the idea for “Frankenweenie,” he envisioned it as a full-length, stop-motion animated film. Due to budget constraints, he instead directed it as a live-action short, released in 1984. As you can take a quick look below…

“Frankenweenie” follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films “Corpse Bride” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®. Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film.
