after visiting corpse bride official site, i can’t hardly wait to see this movie in theatre. the website is stunning and full of well-crafted imaginary surprises. :shock:
you can move around to see several sections. i’d suggest “the pub” where you can watch the official trailer and play dartboard mini-game. if you’re able to hit the bull’s eyes three times you can view three special clips (however only one clip is available to view now, other two should be up and running within next month)
corpse bride carries on in the dark, romantic tradition of burton’s classic films edward scissorhands and the nightmare before christmas.
set in a 19th century european village, this stop-motion, animated feature follows the story of victor (depp), a young man who is whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious corpse bride (bonham-carter), while his real bride, victoria (watson), waits bereft in the land of the living.
though life in the land of the dead proves to be a lot more colorful than his strict victorian upbringing, victor learns that there is nothing in this world, or the next, that can keep him away from his one true love. it’s a tale of optimism, romance and a very lively afterlife, told in classic tim burton style.
corpse bride is directed by mike johnson & tim burton, music by danny elfman, featuring the voices of helena bonham-carter, johnny depp, richard e. grant, christopher lee, emily watson and danny elfman. this movie is set to hit nationwide theatres (u.s.a.) on september 23, 2005.
