IMAX to Release Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie' on October 5, 2012
The giant screen exhibitor will screen the Winona Ryder, Martin Landau and Martin Short-voiced Disney film, based on the director's 1984 short, in 3D.
TORONTO – Imax has added Tim Burton's feature-length, black-and-white film, Frankenweenie, to its 2012 film slate.
The move follows Imax also scheduling a super-sized release for Burton's Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp, on May 11, 2012.
Imax will then screen a digitally-remastered version of Frankenweenie on October 5, 2012, day-and-date with its worldwide release.
Burton’s latest picture marks the first black and white Hollywood feature and the first stop-motion animated movie to screen on Imax screens.
Frankenweenie features the voices of Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short and Winona Ryder, and is a remake of a live-action short directed by Burton in 1984.
"Imax has a long-standing relationship with Tim Burton, whose unique artistic vision and brilliant storytelling has captured the imagination of audiences around the world," Greg Foster, chairman and president of Imax Filmed Entertainment, said Tuesday.
