Frankenweenie Coming to Blu-Ray and DVD January 8th – Reader Giveaway

FRANKENWEENIE, the latest masterpiece from Tim Burton, is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on January 8th.  The stop-motion animated film (filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D) tells the story of a young boy, Victor, who uses science to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life. As you can expect, fooling around with life and death leads to some unintended consequences.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it in the theaters, it’s awesome.  You can read my previous review of Frankenweenie here.

For more in depth info about the movie as well as fun stuff like games, videos and more, visit the Frankenweenie web site.
