    Black and white is a big risk for a kid's film. I dig it, but will the kids weened on primary colours and Pixar?

    goth tweeners will be all over it.

    How well did Corpse Bride do in the theaters? Don't know if that was marketed as a family movie, but it was b/w and stop motion animated.

    I think folks often forget that Nightmare Before Christmas was mis-marketed and did disappointing numbers at the box office of the time, before becoming a cult hit and merchandising machine on DVD/Video.

    I think Corpse Bride did okay at the box office and DVD. It will be interesting to see if it has any legs as a cult film. I don't think it had the colourful cast of characters that Nightmare did, which makes it a little less of an easy sell in the Bobble-head, t-shirt and glass figurine marketplace.

    Corpse Bride was not black and white, it was just a subdued color palette.

    I remember this was a live action short film on Nick or Disney back in the early 90s. I'm not happy that it's been turned into a CGI film.

    I remember the original. Didn't Disney hold it in it's vaults until Burton hit it big with Batman? I recall they didn't know what to do with it.

    The kid looks like a young version of Depp's character from The Corpse Bride.

    This is the kind of stuff Burton excels at. My son will probably want to see this, along with "ParaNorman".
