There’s a new trailer out for Tim Burton’s feature length adaptation of his original short film, Frankenweenie, and it shows the movie’s lead, Victor, proving his mastery of science by resurrecting his dead dog, Sparky.
Victor then realized that his emotions may have gotten the best of him, and realized the implications of what he has done. In an attempt to curtail the possible damage that he will do, he kept the pooch under wraps. However, as expected of any pup, Sparky has no intention of staying indoors, and soon sets out on his own, wreaking havoc all over the neighborhood.
What’s worse, once others found out about Victor’s achievement, they took it upon themselves to copy the experiment, resulting in the neighborhood being filled with zombie creatures. Will Victor be able to rectify his mistake, or will the town’s attempts to play god cost them dearly?
Frankenweenie will open in the UK on 17 October 2012.
