Summer is here. The time has arrived for film buffs to catch up on films they may have overlooked in recent months. Put Frankenweenie on that list, an overlooked Tim Burton feature with funkiness and flaws a plenty. Let’s dig up my review of Frankenweenie on Blu-ray in this edition of Disney In Depth.

The dog, man’s best friend. They possess the ceaseless loyalty, friendship and empathy that most humans only wish they could have. No wonder why the loss of a dog can bring about such sadness. Burton infuses immense passion and consideration into this pet project of his, finally adapted into this full-length, entirely stop-motion feature.

Skull-Face Island Banner

Greetings! This is Adam Frazier and you’re about to shipwreck yourself on Skull-Face Island, the official movie podcast of Geeks of Doom! As always I’m joined by the Damien’s Babysitter, producer Tim “It’s All For You” Grant. David Allen will be absent this week. He seems to have found himself in a pickle of sorts. I have a note here that was delivered to me by a baby pterodactyl earlier today. It reads as follows:

“Hey guys. Sorry I won’t be there this week. I was out and about looking for a Halloween gift for the two of you when it struck me. I’ll kill that damn Pterodactyl that’s always shitting on Tim and I’ll present the skull as a gift for the upcoming holiday. Well, things didn’t work out that well. In my attempt to kill the beast, I slipped on some of its aforementioned shit and was then tackled by the creature. Right now, I’m hovering above the island in the grips of the pterodactyl. Luckily I had a pen and paper and was able to write this note. These little pterodactyls are really nice. One has even promised to deliver this note. So, I’m sure I’ll be down in a bit. Or not, but whatever, I’m just enjoying the ride. Have a good show.”

Godspeed, David! Today on the Show: We’ll discuss Tim Burton‘s stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie and Stephen Chbosky‘s The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Our friendly neighborhood robotic butler MAR-10 will provide us with the latest movie news, including Guillermo Del Toro‘s confirmation that he’s writing a script for his Frankenstein adaptation For Universal.

Disney In Depth: ‘Frankenweenie’ Strikes Out; Analyzing Tim Burton’s Latest Film

Disney In Depth banner

Frankenweenie, director Tim Burton’s stop-motion comedic horror spoof, opened to a disappointing $11.4 million last weekend, representing American audiences’ disinterest in a black-and-white animated film about a boy who resurrects his beloved dog. The supposed early financial failure, or rather letdown, underscores an even larger issue in the film community.

Sadly, moviegoers just fail to resonate with material, or at least check out content, that differs from the norm. This edition of Disney In Depth highlights the many issues that have faced Frankenweenie, a satisfactory film mixed with cleverness and heart, but shocked by disinterest.

Movie Review: Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie

Frankenweenie PosterFrankenweenie
Directed by: Tim Burton
Written by: John August
Starring: Charlie Tahan, Frank Welker, Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Atticus Shaffer
Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG | 87 Minutes
Release Date: October 5, 2012

I don’t want to be buried in a Pet Sematary, I don’t want to live my life again.” – The Ramones

From director Tim Burton (Ed Wood, Edward Scissorhands) comes Frankenweenie, an eerie, albeit heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog.

Based off Burton’s own 1984 live-action short film (which starred Daniel Stern and Shelley Duvall), Frankenweenie is a gothic, black-and-white love letter to Universal Studio’s classic horror pictures, including James Whale’s 1931 film, Frankenstein.

After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan) harnesses the blasphemous power of science to bring his best friend back to life. A few bolts of lightning later, Sparky’s his old self again – with a few modifications, of course. Sparky’s a patchwork of skin and stitches now, complete with those iconic Boris Karloff bolts in his neck.

Six Vintage Classic Horror Inspired Posters For Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’

Frankenweenie

Disney will be releasing Tim Burton’s latest stop-motion animated feature Frankenweenie this Friday. So to mark the special occasion, the studio has unveiled six vintage posters inspired by some of the great horror movie classics. Like Sparky, which is a dog that has Frankenstein-like qualities, these posters feature the other household pets seen in the film sharing some sort of trait with a classic horror monster.

Check out all six vintage posters below.

Based on the live-action short of the same name, Frankenweenie follows a boy named Victor who successfully brings his beloved dog back to life by using the miracles of science. When his classmates find out about this, they attempt to do the same thing in order to win the school science fair. However, their attempts do not warrant the same results as Victor’s did.

Frankenweenie

As you saw from our reaction post made earlier today, we are pretty excited for Frankenweenie.

It’s a Tim Burton film that blends classic horror motifs (mostly from Frankenstein) with stop-motion animation and 3D effects. We’ve already seen two trailers for Frankenweenie, but none of them paid homage to the classic horror films the way this new retro trailer does.

Check it out below.

SDCC 2012: Frankenweenie Panel: Tim Burton with Chris Hardwick

Frankenweenie, the upcoming Tim Burton vehicle which has been a pet project for him since his inception as a filmmaker/animator almost three decades ago, first appearing as a short and now finding its way as a full length feature, had its debut today at Comic-Con.

Hosted by Chris Hardwick and first introduced by some 3D footage of the upcoming production which was akin to an old Universal Pictures trailer, replete with black and white and overblown narration, Frankenweenie is a film about a boy’s resurrection of his beloved dog.

Frankenweenie

This summer, audiences didn’t seem to show much affection towards Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, and rightfully so, since the film was critically panned. Now that that film is behind him, Burton is now turning his attention to Frankenweenie.

The teaser trailer was released back in March, and now a new trailer for the film has arrived online, giving a more in depth look at the story. You can see the new trailer below.
