Voice Cast:  Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder

Director:  Tim Burton

Producers:  Tim Burton, Allison Abbate

Executive Producer:  Don Hahn

Screenplay by:  John August

Based on an original idea by:  Tim Burton

From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

 

A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.

 

In Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.

 

 

NOTES:

 

  • When Tim Burton originally conceived the idea for “Frankenweenie,” he envisioned it as a full-length, stop-motion animated film. Due to budget constraints, he instead directed it as a live-action short, released in 1984. 
  • “Frankenweenie” follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films “Corpse Bride” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®.
  • Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film.
  • The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”).
  • Several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister— were inspired by classic horror films.

FUN FACTS 

 

  • “Frankenweenie” follows in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s other stop-motion animated films “Corpse Bride” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—both of which were nominated for Academy Awards®.

 

  • Stop-motion animation is one of the oldest animation styles. There are 24 frames per second in the stop motion for “Frankenweenie.” This means that the animator must stop and position the puppet 24 times to get one second of filmed action. On average, one animator can only produce 5 seconds of animation per week.  Multiple puppets of the same character allowed animators to work on more than one scene at once. There were as many as 18 animators working independently of each other at one time.

 

  • “Frankenweenie” is the first animated film that Tim Burton has directed for Disney.

 

  • All of the characters in “Frankenweenie” are based on Tim Burton’s drawings. He did some of the drawings in 1984 when the original live-action short of “Frankenweenie” was done and the others he drew especially for this new, feature-length animated version.

 

  • The talented voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood,” Sleepy Hollow”).

 

  • Production designer Rick Heinrichs enjoys a long-standing professional relationship with director/producer Tim Burton, having worked in various capacities on many of Burton’s films, including “Sleepy Hollow,” for which he won an Academy Award®; short films “Vincent” and the live-action “Frankenweenie”; feature films “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Batman Returns,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Planet of the Apes.” Most recently, Heinrichs designed the Burton-directed, live-action feature “Dark Shadows.”

 

  • Classic horror films from the 1930s, like “Frankenstein” and “Dracula,” inspired several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgemeister.

 

  • Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film; there were 17 Victors and 12 Sparkys. Since each animator worked independently on different scenes, multiples were needed. They also needed backup in case a puppet required repair.

 

  • The Puppet Hospital on the “Frankenweenie” set was always full. These highly trained model makers spent months repairing limbs, fixing hair and skin issues and mending costumes that were ripped or dirty. This team even found time to create all of the generic background puppets as well as a few of the main characters from scratch.

 

  • The first puppet designed for the show was Sparky and the scale that they established with him set the standard for the whole rest of the film. Tim Burton had a very specific vision for Sparky’s character and really wanted him to act and move like a real dog. The armature needed to be very intricate and 4 inches is literally the smallest they could make him and still have him display all the behavior and personality that was required. Once they had his size fixed, the puppet makers were able to scale the rest of the characters and sets properly.

 

  • Incredibly talented artists are able to take Tim Burton’s original drawings and sculpt them into three-dimensional sculptures, which are then cast in a combination of silicone and latex. Their costumes are all sewn with miniature stitches to keep in scale.  Wigs are made for them from real human hair and then applied strand by strand so that the puppets have a more realistic hairline.  Inside each puppet there is a metal armature, which acts like a skeleton and gives the animator the ability to move the puppets and act out the scenes with incredible subtlety and finesse.

 

  • The film takes place in the fictitious town of New Holland, a suburban development circa the 1970s, much like Burbank, California, where director Tim Burton grew up.  A windmill sits on a hill overlooking the town and adds just the right touch for New Holland’s annual Dutch Days celebration.

 

  • The sets for the film were built on tabletops. The vast majority of the miniature props for the sets were made by hand and hand-painted and detailed.

 

  • The music for “Frankenweenie” was composed by Danny Elfman, whose working relationship with Tim Burton goes back to 1985 when Elfman composed the score for “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.” Elfman has composed the scores for all of Burton’s films thus far, with the exception of two: “Ed Wood” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”

“The Dark Knight Rises” será presentada en película de 70mm en 102 locaciones IMAX 15/70mm en todo el mundo. Christopher Nolan declaró: “Como filmé casi la mitad de la película con cámaras IMAX de gran formato, es muy importante para mí que ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ se muestre en el formato IMAX siempre que sea posible. 

El público de todo el mundo debe estar seguro de que todas las exhibiciones del film gozarán de los más grandes estándares —ya que hemos aprovechado la claridad y la profundidad que las cámaras IMAX ofrecen. Pero estas 102 pantallas proyectarán la  fotografía original IMAX en su forma óptima, y espero que todos los que tengan la oportunidad de disfrutar la película en estos cines lo hagan”. 

Warner Bros. Pictures presenta en asociación con Legendary Pictures, una producción de Syncopy, el film de Christopher Nolan, “The Dark Knight Rises”. Se estrenará en cines y IMAX, y será distribuida a nivel mundial por Warner Bros. Pictures, una compañía de Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Thank you all for playing!!!

 

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

 

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
