Fans of famed creative genius Tim Burton have another highlight to look forward to: Frankenweenie which is based on Burton’s own 1984 live-action short film of the same name and is a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog.
When young Victor’s pet dog Sparky (who stars in Victor’s home-made monster movies) is hit by a car, Victor decides to bring him back to life – in style of “Frankenstein”. The boy harnesses the power of sciene to bring his best friend back to life – with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
The black and white movie is coming at us in 3D and coming to European cinemas this week.
