Every day brings this film closer and closer... I can't wait!!!
Wicked looking screenshot ^_^ In the very least, we are gaurenteed that the film will have an awesome atmosphere. :)
I seem to remember reading though that Corpse Bride wasnt actually a Burton film.. Am I correct in this? I know he plays a part, but I seem to remember it was just something like producer or something.. not actually directing? Are my wires crossed?

It sure has that Tim Burton feel to it, Looks amazing !!
It kind of looks 3D but that fabric looks to real, so I'm guessing its Stop mo.

I love this look, and I can't wait for the film! :)

Incidentally, does anyone know if the character designer is the same person (people?) who worked on The Periwisg-Maker? (http://www.idealstandardfilm.de/periwig-maker.html) The style looks nearly identical...

Looks great, doesn't it. I can't wait for this!

The direction is split between Tim Burton and Mike Johnson, with Burton also taking the producer credit. It's being handled by Vinton Studios - http://www.vinton.com/home.html

Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Christopher Lee, Albert Finney, Joanna Lumley and Richard E Grant all look to be confirmed as voice talent, and Elfman's on board to provide music ( naturally ) so I think we can assume this will be pedigree Burton.

edit: Gah! Sneaked in while I was posting, Gein! ;)

- M The puppets and costumes for 'The Perriwig Maker' were done, I believe, by MacKinnon and Saunders, who have worked with Burton before on 'Mars Attacks', so there is a good chance there is some crossover. Looks wonderful though! I can recommend the work of Barry Purves if peeps like 'The Perriwig Maker'.

The caption from the picture says stop motion but I think it would be cool to see Burton have a go at incorporating some CG elements- anyone know if he has an aversion to CG or its just a matter of preference for him?

This is what Tim had to say about using CGI

http://actionadventure.about.com/cs/weeklystories/a/aa120203.htm

"Burton insisted on other real effects, such as parking a car in a tree. “People go, ‘Oh, we can just CG that in.’ Well no, it’s important to have the car in the tree. "

on Big Fish

Burton did chose CG over model animation for mars attacks, a whole load of Martian stop mo puppets were actually made but ditched when he saw what the CG guys had done.

Corpse Bride is being shot at a studio in London,puppets by mackinnon and saunders

Wow. Why is this the first time I've heard about this? I love Tim Burton (anyone remember Stainboy?-lol) and I love Vinton's work.

Burton is definitely an auteur--all of his work looks SOO similar. Some people view it as bad or unoriginal, but others (like me) understand that he has a style he is loyal to.

Cool beans--I really want to see this

I like the fact that Burton has a close-knit crowd of people that love to work with him, especially Depp and Elfman.

Yes, tim burton and johnny depp are an incredible duo. Tim Burton is a great director with a lovely style, and johnny depp is simply one of the (if not thé) best actors of this moment.

I hadn't heard about this project eather, but it looks promising!

This is stop motion? wow. I was convinced it was CG. The hair details on the guys head and the fingers with no deformations made me think this was going to be a CG picture, but if its Stop motion, more power to it! I LOVE Nightmare, hope this one is good.

This looks class!
Roll on the Burton/Depp combination. Can't wait to see this.
agreenstar: I'd be surprised to hear anyone call Tim Burton unoriginal though... He's got a style that anyone can pick up on, and that alone shows his originality. The word Burtonesque has practically entered our dictionaries.

wow,that looks gr8.
i'm a diehard fan of tim burton and i think "the nightmare befor christmass" is one of the best animations ever made.i've seen it 10923^$#%^ times and i still love to see it.

looking forward to see this movie :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I noticed this movie will come out on september 23, what do you people reckon a movie like this would do at the box office?

I hope it will do good but I also hope it won't steal away millions from Serenity which will come out at the 30th :)

I think I will be in america in august and september next year so I'll catch both movies in theaters on release day me thinks :)

At last a pic!!! Wow! What more can I say - I'm just waiting patiently now for a good 2 hr story - and perhaps songs??? Anyway, lets hope that now disney are recognising the beauty of nightmare, this will get good reviews and good ratings - which equals more stop motion!

Go Burton!

Awesome style in that picture! The characters are really well formed, and Depp looks like Depp also! ;)

I like the fact that Burton has a close-knit crowd of people that love to work with him, especially Depp and Elfman.I like that to! :)

I freakin' can't wait for the release! :bounce:

I think this will be great. I wonder if Henry Selick will be involved. Much of Nightmare Before Christmas' success should be attributed to him. I still run into people all the time that think Tim Burton directed that film. No doubt that it was Tim Burton's genius and his collaboration w/ Elfman that brought the film to where it is... the question is, does Burton need Selick's collaboration in order to repeat or surpass Nightmare? Being a Burton fan.. I was quite disappointed with "Big Fish." That was such a misfire IMHO.

Hi all,

I'm one of the animators on the Corpse Bride. Glad to hear that you are all excited about a non CG movie.

Just to answer a few question:

Mooncalf, you were right to make the link between The Periwig-Maker and The Corpse Bride they are both character designed by Carlos Grangel. He is an amazing guy, and does a lot of work for Dreamworks. Tim Burton did have a hand in some early designs, but most of what you see is down to Carlos. Incidentally, I also animated The Periwig-Maker.

Machinnon & Saunders made all the puppets.

Tim Burton was much more hands on during the pre-production stage of the film, set up the style, casting and such. Of course, Mr Burton is the guiding force on the project, but Mike Johnson is the guy we animators have to try and please everyday.

Henry Selick is not involved.

There will be very limited CG elements in the film.

Hope this answers a few question.

I have to agree with Big Fish being a bit bland. This looks beautiful from the screenshot though. I pumped.

For those that didnt know, the release date is

09/23/2005

Synopsis:


What do you do when you inadvertently marry a corpse?

Returning to the painstaking stop-motion animation he employed with amazing success in The Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton presents a hair-raising legend based on a 19th-century Russian folktale, in which a young man mistakenly weds a corpse while on a two-day trek to the village of his real bride-to-be. It is up to the groom's flesh-and-blood fiancée, who has been pining for the arrival of her intended, to face her wraith-like rival and make peace with her by promising to live her dreams for her and by vowing to remember her always. Only then are the living bride and groom free to proceed with their own wedding ceremony in the warmhearted fable Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.

Just in case it's not known (since Selick's name was mentioned), Henry Selick is working on a stop motion production of Coraline.

Wouldn't it be cool to be one of the actors that a director always goes to?
Like Depp with Burton.
Hanks with Spielberg.
Cambell with Rami.
etc.
