New poster for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie will shock you!

02.21.2012

Tim Burton's stop-motion animated film FRANKENWEENIE unveiled their new motion poster today via Facebook and it looks pretty sweet. Click the image to go to the page and see it in action (you have to Like the page in order to see it) and check out a still shot below:

I love stop-motion animation and Tim Burton has delivered some top notch work along with his collaborators with NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and CORPSE BRIDE. FRANKENWEENIE is based on Burton's original live action featurette of the same name, which was made in 1984 and resulted in him being fired from Disney for "wasting company resources" on something that was "too scary for young audiences." 

Wow.  How the times have changed.

Here's the synopsis from IMDB:

When young Victor's pet dog Sparky (who stars in Victor's home-made monster movies) is hit by a car, Victor decides to bring him back to life the only way he knows how. But when the bolt-necked "monster" wreaks havoc and terror in the hearts of Victor's neighbors, he has to convince them (and his parents) that despite his appearance, Sparky's still the good loyal friend he's always been.

FRANKENWEENIE is reanimated on October 5, 2012

Extra Tidbit: Aside from the above mentioned stop-motion animated films, I'm also a huge fan of Fantastic Mr. Fox, Coraline, and am jazzed for Paranorman later this year. stop-motion for the win!

Disney has an epic list of people they have fired that are simply incredible in their own right. To bad that juggernaut can't be bitten in the ass by their mistakes.

For The Win INDEED

This, PARANORMAN and PIRATES all in one year. What a great year for us stop-motion geeks. I love the original short. Hope all 3 movies do well

I'm kinda looking forward to the movie, but I can't wait for the Danny Elfman score to this movie. I have a feeling it'll be one of those great Elfman scores for a Burton film.

I love stop motion and Burton, so looking forward to this! But I've got a bad feeling that this will tank, as I don't think a kids audience is up for at black and white movie! Very gutsy!

Looks just like the desing of the dog from the family dog from amazing stories back in the 80's only done up in clay instead of a animated cell drawing. Plus the tick already tackled the boy resurrects his dog bit with the brain child and skippy the propellerized dog in the comics and fox in animation in the 90's.

Well, Tim Burton designed the dog in Family Dog in his collaboration with Brad Bird and Frankenweenie is from 1984, before the tick did it in the 90s. So, FAIL on both counts.

I loved the 1984 short, and I'm looking forward to this one too. Though I didn't see him listed on IMDb, perhaps Daniel Stern will lend his pipes?
