From The Hollywood Reporter:

Sally will drop nightshade into Dr. Finkelstein's tea in 3-D come Halloween, when Walt Disney Pictures releases a digitally remastered version of "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas."

The digital release of the 1993 stop-motion animated classic is set for Oct. 20.

"Nightmare" marks the second digital 3-D theatrical release from Disney after "Chicken Little" did banner business last year in digital 3-D on 84 U.S. screens at 81 locations. The digital 3-D boxoffice returns outperformed the standard screenings nearly 3-to-1, according to Disney estimates.

Burton and "Nightmare" director Henry Selick are involved in the digital remastering of the stop-mo feature starring Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, and were "very cheered by the news" that Disney wanted to release the movie in 3-D, according to Selick.

"When visitors came to visit the set of 'Nightmare Before Christmas,' they were always amazed by the intricate sets and beautiful puppets -- that they actually existed in miniature," Selick said Monday. "It was disappointing to see this effect lost on film. By remastering for 3-D, I hope that some of this magic can be captured and shown to the audience in a way they've never seen before."


Oh, and the soundtrack is being re-released with new kickass stuff, with covers from Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, Fiona Apple, She Wants Revenge and Marilyn Manson. Woo!


Date indicated on this page is for the release. Assuming Metreon because it's the only IMAX I'm aware of...

I'm extremely sceptical about the kickass-ity of the new stuff on the soundtrack, I'll probably end up howling about whatever they cut to include the new bits.

Other than that, definitely awesome.


The new stuff on the soundtrack is a second CD with the cover versions, plus Danny Elfman's original demo tracks of four of the songs. The soundtrack of the movie is not being changed. You can hear samples from the new disc at http://www.hyfntrak.com/nightmare/AFF27193/

This will be showing at the Metreon and at the Century 20 in Daly City. http://www.fandango.com/MoviePage.aspx?date=10/20/2006&mid=99762&source=bm_title


I love the narrative epilogue recording by Patrick Stewart on the album. Awesome end to the story.

I was upset when i looked up locations on the Nightmare3d website and couldn't find anything in san francisco. They need to update their listings.


OMFG! Why didn't I hear abotu this earlier!? Is anyone dressing up?


I thought for a minute it wasn't playing anymore, but I just had Javascript turned off for the Fandango page. Phew!!
