‘Frankenweenie’ Unleashes a Clip and Featurette
Tim Burton‘s ‘Frankenweenie‘ opens tomorrow, and we’ve already seen and reviewed it. Our Jordan Hoffman said that it has “craft dancing all over the screen (Mr. Rzykruski’s mouth!), but the scenario and the writing is all very safe.” But though we were mixed on it, perhaps this new featurette and clip will get you excited.
If you don’t know by now, here’s the synopsis:
From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.
In Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.
Here’s the featurette:
