8 Character Banners Have Arrived for Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie'
With Dark Shadows in the past, one more film from director Tim Burton is still coming. This fall, Burton is heading back to the well to resurrect his live-action short film Frankenweenie for a black and white, stop-motion animated adaptation featuring the voices of Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Tom Kenny and Martin Landau as various characters. We've already seen a couple posters and a charming teaser trailer, but now we have a batch of character posters for the real fans obsessed with all the marketing materials. Though Burton has lost his touch as a filmmaker, I do love all these character designs.
Here are the 8 character posters for Burton's Frankenweenie, from places around the web (click each):
Young Victor (Charlie Tahan) conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. Based on Burton's original 1984 B&W short.
Frankenweenie was directed by mastermind Tim Burton, who's brought us Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd and The Nightmare Before Christmas previously. The screenplay was written by John August (Go, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, The Nines) from a story by Tim Burton & Leonard Ripps. Disney is bringing Frankenweenie to theaters everywhere in 3D starting on October 5th later this year. Watch the first teaser trailer here.
