If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I know we made jokes when we heard that Tim Burton was remaking his own short film 'Frankenweenie' into a full-length animated film, the guy is apparently so hellbent on adapting established properties that now he's adapting his own blah blah blah, but I have to say this first trailer got to me. It hints at something that Tim Burton's films have been lacking for a while now: heart. It might be the fact that I'm just a big softie for dogs, but the love this boy has for his departed canine friend, and how much that loss is affecting him, got me a little choked up. It may be a wild, gothic concept that borrow heavily from classic horror films/literature, but anyone who has ever had a dog can relate to the core of this story. Fine Burton, I'm hooked. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think.
