Frankenweenie Sneak

Director Tim Burton offers a glimpse of his upcoming 3-D black-and-white stop-motion animation, a parody of and homage to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This is Burton’s second treatment of  the same material, as he previously created a short version of Frankenweenie in 1984. The new feature, due out on Oct. 5, tells the story of young Victor, who harnesses the power of science to bring back to life his beloved dog Sparky.  Victor tries to keep Sparky under wraps, but the creature can’t stay penned up, escaping to wreak havoc with Victor’s friends and neighbors. Vocal talents include several Burton regulars — Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara and Martin Landau, among them, with Christopher Lee in an uncredited cameo portraying Dracula in an old movie playing on TV.
