Disney Slates 'John Carter' Against 'Prometheus' In Move That Should Last A Week
In order to make room for John Carter of Mars, the Mouse has moved their original offering that weekend, Tim Burton's Frankenweenie, to October 5th, 2012. October dates always seem like a good fit for Burton's fare, but the move was more likely made as he prepares to shoot Dark Shadows next. Plus, Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp have lives too, so maybe they asked Timmy to space that shit out. Frankenweenie is an animated feature-length adaptation of a short Burton did a number of years back, so while it may not be a blockbuster, it will probably appeal to Americans who have gotten to know and love Burton's recent watered-down type of creepy.
