There's Nothing Like Seeing Someone Stroking Their Frankenweenie

Come on! You know we've all done it and were happy to do so. Sometimes you just can't resist. You just can't ignore it or it'll be poking around all day looking for attention. True, it can be messy but it only takes a second to wipe off your hands when you're done.

The L.A. Times recently interviewed Trey Thomas, Frankenweenie's animation director and debuted a brand new still. "You'd think black-and-white would be forgiving because it's just shades of gray. But it isn't. It shows every little flaw," says Thomas speaking at his East London office about the movie's monochrome aesthetic.

The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!), and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), along with Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer.

Look for the flick in theatres on October 5th, 2012.

A heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor 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' will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.
