It feels like a long time since Tim Burton directed a film that I truly enjoyed (Sweeney Todd – 2007), but I have a feeling his upcoming stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie, will be a return to form for the unique auteur. The movie – which is being distributed by Disney - tells a children’s version of the classic Frankenstein tale, where young Victor resurrects his dog Sparky from the dead, resulting in monstrous consequences. Frankenweenie was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, and has a talented voice cast that includes Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder. The film releases in U.S. theaters on October 5, 2012.
