New 'Frankenweenie' Trailer and Poster

Although not a zombie film, how could I pass up posting the new trailer and poster for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie? A stop-motion remake of Burton's 1984 short, Frankenweenie is the story of a boy who revives his dearly departed dog using some very mad science.

Although I've gone on record stating that I think Tim Burton has gone stale (it all started with that horrible Planet of the Apes "re-imagining"), I definitely look forward to Frankenweenie and hope it brings that perfect combination of the sweet and the sick that Burton used to be known for.

Perhaps most interestingly, Frankenweenie was shot in black and white but will be presented in 3D. Since 3D tends to darken and dull colours, I guess Frankenweenie's audience won't have to suffer that annoyance at all.
