Tim Burton’s latest stop motion animated adventure, Frankenweenie, reveals an exclusive retro-style poster.
The stop-motion film is about a boy and his dog. After losing his beloved dog Sparky, Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor “tweaks”. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation from public, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that this “new life” has unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.
Interestingly enough, Frankenweenie will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.
Frankenweenie will hit theaters October 5, 2012.
