See a Cute New Poster for Tim Burton's Stop-Motion 'Frankenweenie'

May 31, 2012


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 - Second Poster

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!

      True, but he had a very heavy hand in the production. The characters were based on his drawings, he wrote the story and basically created the entire universe the film takes place in.

    Was "A Nightmare Before Christmas" a film by Disney? If not, that is the explanation why "Alice in Wonderland" is mentioned on this poster and not "Nightmare". Personally I think that Tim Burton has to split from Disney. If that happens, his movies could be getting better again. I say it's Disneys fault! 
    • A Nightmare Before Christmas was from Touchstone Pictures (which is owned by Disney). They felt it was just a little too risky taking it under the Disney-name.
