'Frankenweenie' trailer: Meet Tim Burton's cute dead puppy

Tim Burton’s recent cinematic output is heavy on remakes. Dark Shadows revisited a beloved soap opera, Alice in Wonderland remixed the surreal Disney cartoon, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tried to out-Wonka Gene Wilder, and Planet of the Apes did indeed feature apes on a planet, just like the Charlton Heston sci-fi classic. It seems inevitable, then, that Tim Burton would finally get around to remaking Tim Burton. Hence: Frankenweenie, the tale of a boy who decides to bring his dead dog back to life, based on a short film Burton made back in the ’80s. Frankenweenie marks Burton’s return to stop-motion, and the new trailer also has a definitive madcap-horror Gremlins vibe. Check it out:
