Frankenweenie: The Touching Tale Of A Boy And His Dog ... And A Lot Of Lightning!

It's animated in stop motion!  It's filmed in black and white!  And ... it's being produced by a major studio?  It can only be Tim Burton's Frankenweenie!!!

The new film coming out this October is a remake of Mr. Burton's short film from 1984 starring Shelley Duvall, Daniel Stern, and Barret Oliver!  The story of a young boy whose love for his dead dog inspires him to resurrect the roadkill rover with plenty of stitches and a touch of lightning!  The movie is a great tribute to Universal's Frankenstein films and well worth checking out.

And ... even though I'm not crazy about remakes, I am happy to see Mr. Burton returning to film one of his own ideas instead of adapting someone else's.  Tim Burton is a genre unto himself and works best when he's dabbling in his own backyard. 

So without further ado, here's the new trailer for the upcoming 2012 release fresh from youtube and ready to watch!  Enjoy!
