New Frankenweenie Trailer Shows The Consequences Of Resurrecting Your Dog
We've already seen Tim Burton's first offering of 2012 and it turned out to be a disaster. Dark Shadows, the director's adaptation of the '60s horror soap opera, was incredibly lazy, unfunny, and unsuccessful, as it was absolutely crushed by Joss Whedon's The Avengers (it ended up only making $75 million domestically on a $150 million budget). Fortunately, Burton's next chance at redemption isn't too far away. Frankenweenie, a stop-motion remake of the short film he made back in 1984, will be arriving in theaters this October and today brings a brand new trailer.
Coming to us via Apple (where you can see it in HD), the preview goes beyond what was already shown in the first trailer and gives us a peek at the larger plot. Check it out below!
Based on a script by John August, who previously worked with Burton on 2003's Big Fish, the new film is a twist on the classic Frankenstein story and centers on a young boy named Victor (Charlie Tahan) who is devastated when his dogSparky is run over by a car. Determined to see his best friend again, Victor tries an experiment that brings Sparky back to life, but when word gets around about what Victor has accomplished he is forced to deal with the consequences. The film also stars Martin Landau, Martin Short, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Tom Kenny and Christopher Lee. Look for it when it hits theaters on October 5th and for more about Frankenweenie head over to our Blend Film Database.
