The first trailer for Tim Burton‘s Frankenweenie has gone online.  Half of the trailer is the set-up for people who never saw Burton’s 1984 live-action short of the same name.  A young boy loses his beloved dog, digs up his bet, and brings him back to life Victor Frankenstein-style.  The second half of the trailer shows the fun ways that Burton is going to expand on his original concept, and that seems to involve bringing in other staples of the Frankenstein movies–namely, Igor and the Bride of Frankenstein.  After seeing the trailer, I’m eager to see the other ways Burton will try to expand on his original short-film.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and the new images.  The film features the voices of Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, and Martin LandauFrankenweenie opens in 3D on October 5th.

Producer Chris Meledandri on HOP, THE LORAX, and an Update on the Stop Motion ADDAMS FAMILY Movie Directed by Tim Burton slice

At today’s press junket for Despicable Me, I was able to sit down with producer Chris Meledandri for an extended on camera interview.  While I’ll be posting the full interview the week of release, he gave me updates on director Tim Hill’s Hop, the next Dr. Seuss animated movie The Lorax, and a small but important update on the stop motion animated version of The Addams Family that will be directed by Tim Burton.

As we reported by in March, Tim Burton has signed on to helm a stop-motion animation adaptation of The Addams Family.  What was not known is where the project is in his always busy schedule.  According to Meledandri, it’s still in the very early stages.  Meaning don’t expect the film anytime soon.  For more on Addams Family, Hop and The Lorax, hit the jump:
