I think it would be impossible for Tim Burton to make a film that was bad. In all honesty, every single one of his films is a master piece in it’s own way. From Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, to Mars Attacks and to his most recent Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton is one of the few directors that I keep up with constantly. My first Burton film in theaters was The Nightmare Before Christmas, and even though I do not remember seeing it then, I watch it at least twenty times a year. I mean how can you not!! It is rich with color, has some of the most memorable songs in cinema history, and is a Christmas and Halloween classic.
For 2012 Burton has two theatrical releases on the way. Fans of Burton are gearing up and preparing themselves for Dark Shadows (which just looks magnificent) , and Frankenweenie.
Frankenweenie is a stop-motion , black and white animated film that will be in 3-D. It is a remake of Burton’s 1984 live action short of the same name, which stared Daniel Stern and Shelley Duvall. I am not a personal fan of 3-D (except for Avatar) but when 3-D is done on animated films, it is usually a whole lot of fun. I absolutely adored Coraline and it’s use of 3-D technology. I know Tim Burton will be delivering us a special treat with this movie.
You can finally check out the trailer below, and from just watching it you can see it is pure Tim Burton in terms of music, story and characters. But come on, what more could want from a Tim Burton film? Creepy kids, a sown up dog with bolts on it’s neck, a Danny Elfman score and Catherine O’Hara!!
Synopsis: After the death of his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring him back to life. Victor tries to hide his creation, but Sparky gets out and causes havoc in the town.
Frankenweenie hits theaters October 5th, 2012
