A new clip has been released for Tim Burton’s latest project, Frankenweenie, in which the young Vincent is shown trying everything he has just to revive his dead pet dog Sparky. Of course, we all know where this is going to lead to (otherwise there would be no movie): he is ultimately successful.
The film itself follows young genius Vincent as he first brings Sparky back from the dead, followed by his attempts to curtail the far-reaching ramifications of his brilliant but misguided act, as the rest of the town’s children follow suit and reanimate their deceased pets, with some of them being brought back to life as harmless critters while others turned into something worse.
Directed by Tim Burton himself, Frankenweenie also features a star studded voice cast that includes Wynona Ryder, Martin Short, and Catherine O’Hara. Frankenweenie will be opening in the UK on 17 October 2012.
