[Reporter : ] Hello Conn-young
So which films do you have for us today[Reporter : ] Tim Burton is back with a new goth-like animation film called "Frankenweenie." This feature length version of his 1984 short of the same name has gotten a millenial update with high-tech effects. Here's a preview of the film, which will be in theaters in early October.
Tim Burton's remake of his 1984 short "Frankenweenie" hits theaters next month.
Like the original, the remake is both a parody and a homage to Mary Sheeley's Gothic novel "Frankenstein," and tells the story of a young boy who brings his late dog, Sparky, back to life.
This time, however, the film gets an update with stop motion-animation and 3-D effects.
The film is voiced by a list of famous actors, including Martin Landau from "Ed Wood," Catherine O'Hara from "Beetlejuice," Martin Short from "Mars Attacks!" and Winona Ryder from "Beetlejuice and "Edward Scissorhands." Cast members hit the red carpet for the film's premiere in Los Angeles on Monday.
Ryder told the press there how excited she was to work with the director again.
[Interview : Winona Ryder, Actress] "It was a dream come true. He's so special, and I love him so much. I credit him with not only giving me a career but also with giving me a voice, because when I first met him, there weren't characters like that."
In response, Burton praised Ryder for her vocal versatility.
[Interview : Tim Burton, Director] "I hadn't seen her in a long time but she's got that kind of voice where she could still play a 10-year-old. It was great, it meant a lot to me to have people that I've worked with in the past and loved be a part of this."
The film tells the story of a young boy named Victor who uses the power of science to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life -- with a few minor adjustments.
Soon after he resurrects Sparky, however, he begins to realize that the adorable puppy may have turned into a monster.
"Frankenweenie" hits theaters in Korea on Oct. 11th.
