A romantic love story involving a corpse filmed in glorious stop-motion animation? It can only come from the imagination of Tim Burton, the man who brought us the wonderfully wild and weird A Nightmare Before Christmas and Vincent with (funnily enough) Vincent Price.
The trailer for The Corpse Bride has now surface online, and you can check it out by clicking on the link here.
Featuring the voices of Burton regulars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Watson, Albert Finney, Joanna Lumley, Richard E. Grant, Christopher Lee and Danny Elfman the plot of the film follows Victor (Depp) who is on his way to get married when he sees a bony finger in the ground.
Thinking it's a stick, he puts the ring on it as a joke and says the wedding vows, but the finger belongs to a corpse of a murdered girl (Bonham-Carter), who returns as a zombie and insists that she is now Victor's lawfully wedded wife.
The Corpse Bride is released in US cinemas on 23rd Spetember of this year, with the UK release occuring one week later on September 30th.
