Set in a 19th century European village, this stop-motion, animated feature
follows the story of Victor (Depp), a young man who is whisked away to
the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride (Bonham-Carter), while
his real bride, Victoria (Watson), waits bereft in the land of the living.
Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot more colorful than
his strict Victorian upbringing, Victor learns that there is nothing in
this world, or the next, that can keep him away from his one true love.
It’s a tale of optimism, romance and a very lively afterlife, told
in classic Tim Burton style.
