Exclusive Frankenweenie trailer premiere

Movies Blog

Yahoo! Movies is proud to bring you the first ever trailer for Tim Burton's stop-animation comedy, 'Frankenweenie'.

'Frankenweenie' is instantly recognisable as a concoction of movie wizard Tim Burton with its gloomy atmosphere and quirky premise. No stranger to stop-animation (he made the popular 'Corpse Bride'), fans will be eager to see his latest movie creation.

After the death of his dog, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life — with a few 'minor' adjustments. The film follows the tale of Victor and his undead dog, Sparky, as he tries to hide his home-sewn creation.

But when Sparky escapes, the cheeky looking zombie pooch wreaks havoc and spooks the entire town.

'Frankenweenie' is released in the UK on 5 October 2012.
