Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie" will go to London to open the 56th BFI London Film Festival on October 10, marking its European premiere. The opening night red carpet and screening will be broadcast live from Odeon Leicester Square to BFI IMAX as well as thirty screens in the UK. The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition (which we geeked out with at Comic-Con) will also be at the festival from October 17-21. "Frankenweenie" opens Fantastic Fest in Austin on September 20.

BFI's Clare Stewart states: “Funny, dark and whimsical, this gloriously crafted stop-motion 3D animation from Tim Burton – the reigning prince of outsiders – playfully turns the Frankenstein story on its bolted-on head. 'Frankenweenie' is a perfect choice of opener – it’s a film that revels in the magic of movies from one of cinema’s great visionaries.”

Check out the trailer and video from the Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition below:
