First Poster for Tim Burton's Stop-Motion Animated 'Frankenweenie'
So far we've only seen a handful of photos for Tim Burton's adaptation of his stop-motion animated short Frankenweenie featuring the voices of Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Tom Kenny and Martin Landau as various characters. Now we have the first moving image of sorts from the film in the form on an animated poster teasing the film's fall release later this year. It's cute and a bit dark all at the same time, something we've come to expect from Burton. Even though it's an adaptation, it's about as close to something original Burton has done as a director in a long time. Check out the poster below!
Here's the poster for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie (click for the animated version at Facebook):
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!

I know Alice in Wonderland made a bundle for Disney, but it really does not feel right mentioning it on this poster (especially since Tim Burton has a large filmography of more appropriate films).

Yeah, that's the only thing I don't like about this poster (aside from maybe the "3D" part..). In the least, they should have named one or two more films he's directed!

If the 3D is done in the same vein as Coraline (I know he was only a producer on that film, but the 3D actually added to the experience of the movie), I'm totally okay with it here.

Yeah, they should mention either the original or Nightmare before Christmas, the poster and theme remind me of Zero and Halloween town.

Poster looks good, let's hope the film doesn't "only" look good, but actually "is" good..

Fat, irritating mall goths across the country are freaking out right now.
