Like the old gag “How Many Lightbulbs…” “How Many Lightbulbs does it take to do another Tim Burton & Johnny Depp Collaboration?” Some of you out there may say too many but at least Senor Burton’s next gig is with out Depp and its a animated film called FRANKENWEENIE! As Burton fans wait for the release of Dark Shadow’s first trailer Frankenweenie been a animation has step ahead and released its first trailer.
So what’s Frankenweenie all about? If your old enough to remember a way back to 1984 Burton released a short film called Baby Secret of the Lost Legend which was a live action short (which was released here in the UK via cinemas) about a young boy who loses his beloved pet dog but brings him back to life in a Frankenstein style job. If your not familiar with that short don’t despair as the first part of this new trailer helps you learn that part with the rest of the trailer teasing you what you can expect as the story is expanded, plenty of Burton’s trademarks on show to enjoy, as well as some original Frankenstein ones too (Igor, Bride)!
Frankenweenie stars the voices of Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara and Martin Landau arriving in a cinema October 5th UK&Ireland.As for the Dark Shadows trailer we’re expecting that anytime now.

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.
