Things We Saw Today: Star Trek Cast Helps With Proposal, Spawns A Million Reaction Images

At a photo op at Austin Comic Con this weekend, a lucky nerd proposed to his girl nerd, and a camera caught everything. We’re not sure who delights us more: Brent Spiner or Wil Wheaton. And yes, according to Wil, Patrick Stewart‘s apparent facepalm was merely a trick of the moment: him wiping sweat from his brow. (The FW)

Here’s The First Full Trailer For Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie

Check out the trailer for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, a remake of his 1984 short live action film. While the original film (and initial trailer) only focuses on the young Victor bringing his recently deceased dog back to life, this stop motion-animated version will show us the logical consequences of bringing your dog back from the dead: utter mayhem, duh. Hopefully the casual racism of what otherwise looks to be an extremely cute film will be limited to Victor’s Japanese friend Toshiaki bringing back Godzilla.

The film will feature the return of Burton favorites Wynona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara as voice actors, in addition to Charlie TahanMartin LandauMartin Short. It opens October 5th, 2012.

Tim Burton’s First Trailer For Frankenweenie!

More like Frankenween-weeeeeeeeeeee!! AMIRITE? It’s the first trailer for Tim Burton’s doggie-Frankenstein film, Frankenweenie. A little history: Burton was fired from Disney back in 1984 for making a live-action version of this film (It starred Shelley DuvallDaniel Stern and Barret Oliver [Bastian from The Neverending Story]). It was deemed too scary for kids and Burton didn’t really fit in with Disney’s cookie-cutter image at the time. The short wasn’t released at the time but Burton of course went on to become a huge star for just that type of work and had a healthy relationship with Disney down the road. This new, stop-motion version of Frankenweenie stars the voices of  Charlie TahanMartin LandauMartin ShortWinona Ryder, and Catherine O’Hara. It opens in 3D, October 5.

Tim Burton Brings Frankenweenie Back To Life

Frankenweenie was not appreciated by Walt Disney Pictures when director Tim Burton created it in 1984. In fact, he was fired for it. The Frankenstein parody was deemed too scary for young audiences at the time and faded into history until Burton hit it big directing Edward Scissorhands and by producing The Nightmare Before Christmas and goth kids everyone fell in love with him. He’s since had much broader success which he’s been able to turn into studios giving him carte blanche and he’s using that to re-create the black and white classic in his well-love stop-motion animation style.
