Frankenweenie hits the big screens October 5th. Still a long ways away, but it's another Tim Burton movie so it's sure to be a hit! This animated comedy stars as the voice cast Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder.
We all know the name, Tim Burton, the mastermind behind “Alice in Wonderland” and "The Nightmare Before Christmas”. “Frankenweenie” is the newest sensation to hit the big screens and is a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. What would you do to bring back a loved pet? After Victor unexpectedly lose his beloved Sparky, Victor turns to science to bring Sparky back to life, but with some minor modifications. The result...Frankenweenie...what happens next?
This movie sounds like it'll be pretty cool. It was filmed in black and white and then made 3D. Should be a neat experience! I've never seen black and white films in real life before!
