It was released today a featurette with behind-the-scenes of “Frankenweenie”, featuring interviews of Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Tim Burton. Watch it:
Another clip has landed from “Frankenweenie”, focusing on science teacher Mr. Rzykruski (Martin Landau, channeling his Oscar-winning turn as Bela Lugosi in Burton’s masterpiece “Ed Wood” — “Pull the strings! Pull the strings!). It’s brief, but as promising as everything else we’ve seen from the film. The film hits theaters on October 5th.
London Film Festival organizers say this year’s event will open in October with Tim Burton’s canine monster movie “Frankenweenie.” The animated black-and-white tale of a boy’s attempts to bring his beloved dead dog back to life will have its European premiere at the festival on Oct. 10.
It will have a red-carpet gala premiere at London’s Odeon Leicester Square and will be screened simultaneously at 30 theaters across Britain.
The film is a feature-length expansion of Burton’s 1984 live-action short of the same name. Festival chief Clare Stewart said Thursday that Burton’s “funny, dark and whimsical” tale “playfully turns the Frankenstein story on its bolted-on head.”
The 56th London Film Festival runs Oct. 10-21. The full lineup will be announced next month.
With just over a month to go before the stop-motion film hits theaters, Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie has debuted two new TV spots. Check them both out in the players below!

The Disney panel it still going, but Frankenweenie was just presented. While following it through Twitter I was able to catch a few parts of the panel:
@empiremagazine: ’50s style narration and music for Frankenweenie promo. Good stuff…
@empiremagazine: Burton on the original Frankenweenie. “I was a very bad animator. So they gave me a short. I had to learn to talk to actors.”
@empiremagazine: Amazing Frankenweenie clip, featuring a lecture on lightning from a nutjob science teacher. We’re loving the feel of this thing – Chris
Let’s hope the clip can surface soon.
