‘Frankenweenie’ IMAX Trailer Reminds You Why You Don’t Go To The Movies Anymore

2-Frankenweenie-081312

A new trailer has been released that supports Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie on the IMAX. Unfortunately, while funny, it reminds us all why we hate going to the movies. Do people really need to be told every single f*cking time to turn off their cell phones and to shut the f*ck up? Seriously.

In Burton’s animated film, a young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. In theaters October 5, the voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), while Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer were later added. Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film, and that several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgermeister— were inspired by classic horror films.

A heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. 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.

A stop-motion animated film, ‘Frankenweenie’ will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.

    I work at a movie theatre. Yes, people do need to be told this every fucking time, sometimes multiple times. Same with “shut up” and “keep you feet off the fucking seats”. If you want to spend 11.50 to go to a movie and use your phone, do everyone a favor and just flush the cash down the toilet and stay home.
