A brand-new trailer has arrived for Tim Burton's upcoming stop-motion animated film "Frankenweenie." Based on one of Burton's early works, the 1984 live-action / black-and-white short film that starred Shelley Duvall and Daniel Stern, this new animated pic pretty much follows the same premise: a young boy named Victor is heartbroken when his dog Sparky is struck and killed by a car. In an attempt to bring his beloved pet back to life, Victor conducts a successful science experiment (similar to James Whale's film version of 'Frankenstein'). As a result, re-animated Spark emerges, only to cause havoc within Victor's suburban community.
Frankenweenie stars Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron and Conchata Ferrell.
