"Your dog is Aliiiiiive!"
Surely you've heard the soundbyte from 'Frankenweenie.' A hunched-over, snaggle-toothed, black and white Edgar "E" Gore, mischief in his eyes and a half-assed Peter Lorre in his voice. It's spooky and it's ooky and it's either the type of thing that you find really played-out or brings a tickle to your heart.
Tim Burton‘s ‘Frankenweenie’ is about to have its coming out party, as the film will be screening at Fantastic Fest tonight, and that means word will be coming shortly if the film - which has Burton returning to a familiar well - has been re-energized by playing with his previous triumphs or if he's just mining the same material for lesser returns. To get pumped, here's two new clips.
Here's a little perspective for you on this slow news day: Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' sold 12 million fewer tickets than Tim Burton's 'Batman,' released in 1989. Are fewer people heading to the theater these days? It's hard to believe more people were excited for Burton's film than Nolan's.
As frontwoman of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O has an exquisite voice and a bad-ass demeanor that rivals many of her male counterparts. Check out her new song from Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie,' and check out this pretty awesome soundtrack list for the rest of the film, which includes The Cure's Robert Smith and Winona Ryder.
Since real film fans hate people who talk and text on their cell phones during the show, it's refreshing to see that the movies themselves sometimes agree with us. This special IMAX teaser for the upcoming Tim Burton film 'Frankenweenie' was built with one purpose in mind: to remind you to shut up and turn off your phone in the theater.
This is a huge year for fans of stop-motion animation. Not only is the medium alive and well, it's been kicking major butt with studios and proving to critics that you don't need fancy CGI and 500 new software patents to make a killer animated movie. 'Frankenweenie' will be the 3rd stop-motion flick to be released this year, and these new character posters and descriptions give us a hint of the madness we can expect when it hits theaters.
