It’s safe to say that Tim Burton is one of the world’s most successful style as substance filmmakers, even if his films have increasingly displayed a frustrating tendency to emphasize design for its own sake. However, Burton returns with a renewed focus on storytelling in Frankenweenie, a black and white
Ed Wood is out now on Blu-ray for the first time, and it has been digitally restored. This is one of my favorite Tim Burton/Johnny Depp film, and one that shows why they have had such a long working relationship. Burton and Depp seem to just get each other artistically, and it shows in this film more than ever.
Stop-motion is one of the oldest forms of animation yet it’s enjoying a wonderful resurgance this year with Paranorman, Pirates! The Band of Misfits, and now Frankenweenie. In theaters starting October 5, Frankenweenie may just be the best of the bunch. In addition to a fantastic movie, the Art of
After talking with Frankenweenie producer Don Hahn, I had the opportunity to chat with Allison Abbate, whom he called “one of the greatest stop-motion producers of all time.” Allison has worked with some incredible directors including Wes Anderson, Brad Bird, and, of course, Tim Burton. Her credits include Space Jam,
Don Hahn has produced some of the most beloved Disney films of all time including The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. His work has brought joy and enchantment to thousands of people around the globe, including me. I can say in all honesty that
Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s is once again lending her beautiful voice and songwriting abilities to the big screen, for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. Her score for Where The Wild Things Are is fantastic (then again it also has a song by Arcade Fire). She also teamed with Trent Reznor on the cover of Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin for David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
This year’s Comic Con is off to an amazing start!! Check out our totally math photo gallery from Preview Night and Day 1. There is so much Adventure Time cosplay going down, it might as well be called FinnCon! Algebraic!!! Giant Finn watches over all of us here: Outside the
Another highlight from Comic Con today was the brand new Frankenweenie “homage” trailer, which debuted during the Walt Disney Studios panel. Honestly, the flick was not really on my radar, but after watching this trailer and chatting with the film’s producers, Don Hahn and Allison Abbate, this adaptation of Tim
After today’s release of a brand new trailer with even more footage for Frankenweenie, Disney also revealed new character descriptions , pictures and bios for the film. Having seen the short that originally portrait this story shot in live action, I can now see we have even more in store in the
To my eyes it doesn’t matter if you are a fan of director’s Tim Burton’s filmography, there’s something you can’t deny from his line of work is his stylish, recognizable and also innovative “look” that his films still have to this date. You can tell a film is a “Burton”
After the very mixed reviews director Tim Burton received about his film DARK SHADOWS (I personally enjoyed it quite a bit), I have high expectations about him gaining back a general positive consensus around film critics/general audiences with his new stop motion entry for 2012 Frankenweenie. I’m a big
IGN just posted the bloody good red band trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and I am so excited for this! While the red band trailer doesn’t show much more in terms of plot or surprises, it does have lots of awesome blood splatter, fight scenes, and the many ways in
I can easily describe Tim Burton‘s latest film Dark Shadows with three words: contrast, humor and family (and of course gore, quirkiness and dark omedy. It is a Burton film after all). Starting Johnny Depp in his latest collaboration with the director, he plays Barnabas Collins, a vampire who awakens almost 200
As contrasting as the pale vampire Barnabas Collins looks against an almost technicolor background of characters and sets, Danny Elfman‘s latest score for Dark Shadows plays to the rest of this film’s soundtrack. In his latest collaboration with Tim Burton, Elfman created another masterful background to what promises to be
