While it sounds like Dark Shadows failed to bring us back to the glory days of a funny but still twisted Tim Burton, maybe the director revisiting one of his earliest works will have the desired effect. We've already seen a teaser trailer for the black and white, stop-motion animated Frankenweenie, and now we have a cute new poster putting the resurrected canine front and center. Honestly, I'm still quite annoyed that the poster has to tout "from the director of Alice in Wonderland" instead of "from the producer of The Nightmare Before Christmas," but I guess audiences today are more enticed by the former. Poster below!
Here's the new poster for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie from Disney (click for larger version):
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, 2012 late this year. Stay tuned for more updates!
