CORPSE BRIDE will be rising to the occasion a bit sooner than expected

Strong advance buzz for Tim Burton’s CORPSE BRIDE convinced Warner Bros. to give the stop-motion animated film an early release in major markets. CORPSE BRIDE will now open “in selected cities” in North America on September 16, 2005; the wide release will remain as originally scheduled on September 23, 2005. Thanks to FANtasticJD for breaking the story. Nationwide television commercials for CORPSE BRIDE are now appearing; one ran on Monday night during the highly-rated drama CSI MIAMI.

In other CORPSE BRIDE news, DeepinDepp reports that the soundtrack recording will be released by Warner Sunset Records/Warner Bros. Records on Tuesday, September 20th. The score is once again the work of longtime Burton collaborator Danny Elfman, who also composed the music for EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, SLEEPY HOLLOW, and CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Elfman calls his assignment “a real treat. Tim’s visuals make the perfect complement for the kind of stuff I love doing most. These wonderfully fun, dark, offbeat tales are the perfect platform for me to write odd, slightly twisted, obscure styles such as my favorite musical era…1930’s jazz. I only hope we get to do more in the future.”
