See Six Awesome Vintage Movie Monster Posters for 'Frankenweenie'

October 1, 2012


This past summer at Comic-Con a great piece of marketing for Frankenweenie emerged with a new trailer that threw back to horror movies of the 40s and 50s. Many were left wondering why this wasn't how the film was being sold from the beginning. Thankfully, someone at Disney was listening and brought back the retro monster movie style of promotion with a new batch of six posters highlighting the various animals brought back to life, but crossed with some kind of deadly movie monster. Sparky gets his own set of posters while the other animals each get their own feature presentation. These really are fantastic. See them all below!

Here are the retro posters for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie from Disney (click for larger versions):

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.

I went and saw it tonight. It's good. Not really for kids. One of his better animated movies and almost on par with a Nightmare Before Christmas.
