To hear that Tim Burton has done a stop-motion remade of his 1984 black-and-white short about a boy's dog brought back to life through Frankenstein-esque methods, you probably already get a pretty decent mental image of what that is probably going to look like. Here's the film's trailer to say, "You were right about everything. Except Catherine O'Hara is the mom instead of Helena Bonham Carter, and Johnny Depp is conspicuously absent." Maybe he's providing the barks?
Charming! And so, so, Burton-y. But hey, at least the guy knows to stock up once he finds something he likes. You don't get twenty years of consistent "I'll have the 'Robert Smith', please" otherwise.
