It was a reception that filmmakers dream of – the pure adrenaline rush from a cheering audience, totally digging his groovy jive. Tim Burton, after the Venice Film Festival press preview of his latest purging of demons, Corpse Bride, received a "thunderous reception" according to the IMDB's Wednesday StudioBriefing. The movie, filmed in time-consuming, time-tested stop motion (one frame at a time), opens in select cities on September 16th and goes wide on September 23rd. It features the voices of frequent Burton proxy Johnny Depp and sort-of Mrs. Tim Burton, Helena Bonham Carter, with music from longtime Burton composer, Danny Elfman. Burton's last animated effort, 1993's The Nightmare Before Christmas, became an unexpected breakout hit for Disney, where Burton was a thankless animator during the 1980's. Corpse Bride is distributed by Warner Brothers.
