From Mezco: "Beetlejuice, "the ghost with the most" is back and ready to bring his unique blend of horrific hilarity to your collection.
Standing an impressive 15 inches tall, this Beetlejuice has all his signature trademarks. He's dressed to kill in his iconic black and white suit with sandworm stompin' boots. He flaunts his ghoulish green hair and his gross, yellowed teeth.
Featuring over 5 points of articulation, Beetlejuice comes packaged in a collector friendly window box suitable for display here or in the afterlife.

For years, we've been threatened with a sequel to Beetlejuice. Apparently it's still happening, but we're no closer to getting a follow-up to Tim Burton's iconic supernatural comedy than we were three or four years ago. Burton is on board, Winona Ryder wants to come back, and Michael Keaton thinks it would be a blast. But it just hasn't come together yet over at Warner Bros. While we patiently await any kind of update on Beetlejuice 2, we do have something pretty cool for hardcore fans of the ghost with the most. A couple of rarely seen deleted scenes pulled from the original workprint.
These scenes have been swimming around on the Internet for a little while now, but Bloody Disgusting noticed that a third scene had recently been uploaded to Youtube after two other black and white scenes had made the rounds over the last couple of years. »

Kevin Smith has always had to fight to get his films off the ground: he started his filmmaking career by maxing out multiple credit cards to self-finance Clerks, and more recently, legend has it, it was only Johnny Depp’s decision to come on board as a wacky supporting character that allowed Smith to secure financing for his walrus-centric horror flick Tusk.
Smith has, across his career, been offered several barmy jobs (he rejected a chance to pen Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian back in the 90s) and he’s also signed up for a lot of projects that never got past the script phase.
The latter camp of could’ve-beens is what we’re talking about today, following that news that Clerks III »
Like many old farts, I think it’s been a long time since Saturday Night Live was reliably funny. A lot of this is nostalgia for my youth, when I was cool and cutting-edge. More, alas, is that I think Lorne Michaels tends to stick to what he thinks works and not to take chances and rock the boat. Too many sketches rely on catch-phrases or stock characters, or the surprise visit of a guest star.
For me, the last straw was letting Trump host the show when he was running for president. I thought it was antithetical to humor to suck up to power that way, and Trump’s racism, sexism, xenophobia and general lack of class are pretty much what good comedy is supposed to attack. It’s much funnier to point out that the Emperor has no clothes than to laugh at the naked peasants.

Baldwin, 58, holds the record for the most times hosting the late-night live sketch comedy and variety show, followed closely by Steve Martin, who has hosted 15 times.
Ed Sheeran will serve as musical guest for Baldwin, who first hosted the show in October of 1990 whilst promoting The Hunt for Red October. He was 32 at the time and best known for Beetlejuice and Working Girl. (The episode played up the actor’s good looks in a “Handsome Actor” skit.)

Has watching Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice ever made you want to summon a wisecracking ghost in your own home? While you may not have the proper tools to contact the supernatural, Sideshow Collectibles has the next best thing with their incredibly detailed, eerily lifelike sixth scale figure of Betelgeuse. With the new figure being released this month, they’ve given us a special look at the collectible that’s sure to please longtime fans of the iconic Michael Keaton character.
In the past, the talented team at Sideshow has given horror fans the goods with sixth scale figures that really bring out the creepiness of notable characters from the genre, including Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. Their Beetlejuice sixth scale figure is no exception, bringing the nightmarish side of the Tim Burton character to life, but also making sure that his manic sense of humor isn’t lost in translation from screen to sculpture. »

The Academy Award-nominated actor recently participated in a SiriusXM Town Hall for his new film The Founder, where People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle asked if he had an update on a follow-up to the 1988 Tim Burton film.
“I don’t know,” he said. “And I’m not being coy.”
The spotlight is on Michael Keaton’s good looks! Here’s a 36-year-old version of the young 'Batman' hunk at a party for the L.A. Kings back in 1987 (left) and 30 years later ... the award-winning actor and father at a Hollywood movie premiere earlier this week (right). Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice. The question is...

Will Smith’s last film, “Collateral Beauty,” may not have resonated with families this past holiday season, but his next one might. Per Deadline, the actor is in early talks to star in Disney’s live-action remake of “Dumbo.”
The new take on the 1941 animated classic is set to be directed by Tim Burton and written by “Transformers” scribe Ehren Kruger. The story will follow a baby circus elephant who is made fun of for having large ears and is separated from his mother.
No additional details about the film were revealed, though The Hollywood Reporter adds that Smith’s potential character would be that of “a father who works at the big top” and whose children develop a relationship with the elephant. Sources also tell the publication that the new version will “expand and deepen the circus aspect of the story.”

Winona Ryder may have been so busy ducking her ex-boyfriend Matt Damon at the Golden Globes on Sunday that she forgot to reunite with her Heathers costar Christian Slater, too. The actress was on hand for the big show on Sunday night and though she didn't take home the best actress in a TV drama series for her role in Stranger Things, she did look absolutely stunning on the red carpet in a black Viktor & Rolf gown. For the record, it's her first time attending the Globes since 2000 (with Matt Damon!), and somehow she's managed to look the same. She and Christian didn't come together during the event, but Winona still made time to gush about her former costar with E!'s Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet. "I have not seen him in a long time, but I adore him," she said. "I'm so happy for him. I could »

A Ghost Story, written and directed by David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon, Peter Pan), reminds us that a ghost under a sheet is most definitely still scary. Casey Affleck (ParaNorman, The Killer Inside Me) stars in this story of a ghost and the house he haunts. Harking back to John Carpenter’s Halloween, James Wan’s The Conjuring and even Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, we […] »

“It’s a sneaky kind of movie,” says the actor Michael Keaton of his latest, the Ray Kroc biopic The Founder, as we sit down at his office in Santa Monica to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “You think you’re just gonna see a biopic, and then you realize there are layers to this movie.” Indeed, Kroc, as played by the 65-year-old veteran, becomes, unlike most movie protagonists, less and less sympathetic and likable as the Weinstein Co. release goes along. This is particularly jarring for audiences because, for decades, they have known and loved Keaton — in blockbusters like Beetlejuice and Batman (both made in collaboration with Tim Burton) and in art house darlings like Birdman and Spotlight (the last two best picture Oscar winners). But, once they acclimate to The Founder, »
