MORE TO COME
Frankenweenie - Tim Burton revisits his original, live-action short film with a full length animated feature. The first stop-motion, 3D, Black and white film. Don Hahn and his co producer, in trying to sell the idea of a black and white film, insisted that Black and white will appeal to younger audiences because, and I'm not making this up, "It's fresh and new" Well, It will be interesting to see them sell Black and white as fresh and new to the young ones and nostalgic to the older audiences. Wouldn't it be great if a film were judges on its merit, rather than the visual conveyance of 3D, black and white, color or what have you? This release looks to be a lot of fun. Danny Elfman is set to score as well.
