Tim Burton Unveils 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Logo

24 July 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tim Burton is embracing social media in the promotion of his latest fantasy adventure. He jumped on his personal Facebook page last night to share the first official look at his upcoming adaptation Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. While we don't get to see any of the characters yet, we do get to see the home mentioned in the title. And we get some bird symbolism. It looks like nothing but blue skies for these strange kids who are about to get a very unexpected visitor.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is based upon the best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs. We won't get to see the movie until March 4, 2016, so a trailer may still be miles away. The movie has quite an ensemble of fan-favorite talent, lead by Asa Butterfield, who lost out on the role of Spider-Man just in the last few months. At least he has »

Suicide Squad: breaking down the trailer

13 July 2015 10:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Comic-Con trailer for David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie has now been released - and we've been dissecting it...

Well, they actually did it. David Ayer and friends are actually going to deliver us a Suicide Squad movie in August of 2016. I never thought I'd live to see the day.

Well, really, 'live to see the day' isn't a phrase you associate with a team known as the 'Suicide Squad'. This trailer landed at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 over the weekend, and wasn't really intended to be seen by the general public for a while, but Warner Bros relented and gave the fans what they wanted.

We went on a hunt for any piece of DC Comics lore that might help us make sense of the Suicide Squad movie trailer. Watch it again if you wish, and then we'll get down to business:

Here's how this is going to work. »

Bad Ideas: Films We’re Glad Never Got Made

4 July 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we often lament some of the films that end up stuck in development Hell, never to become realized on the big screen, there are some films we should all be glad never came to fruition.  

Sometimes they don’t get it! We all know that the film industry is a business and they want to make money, but Hollywood doesn’t always realize that the best way to do that is to make a good film. Sometimes, Hollywood’s habit of taking a known property and stretching them out to absurd proportions proves that they just don’t get the point. Fortunately, there are times when someone recognizes a bad idea and puts on the brakes. Below is a list of 14 films where someone was smart enough to notice that they were making a pile of trash and threw in the towel.

Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian

Due to the success of Beetlejuice, »

Michael Keaton and Jk Simmons swing free of Kong: Skull Island

2 July 2015 5:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Scheduling conflicts blamed for key duo’s departure from latest big-budget Hollywood monster epic Kong: Skull Island, which will revisit home of giant ape

A belated sequel to Peter Jackson’s fantasy remake King Kong has seen the sudden departure of two of its key players, with Michael Keaton and Jk Simmons both leaving due to scheduling conflicts.

A property that might otherwise have gone relatively unnoticed, Kong: Skull Island was given a major boost by the arrival of Keaton in January, just as Oscar buzz was mounting for his critically acclaimed turn in Birdman, as a former superhero-movie actor trying to reignite his career via Broadway. The star of Beetlejuice and Tim Burton’s Batman films was later beaten to the best-actor prize by The Theory of Everything’s Eddie Redmayne, but he is nevertheless experiencing a Hollywood renaissance, having also been cast in the forthcoming McDonalds biopic The Founder. »

Danny Elfman on Film Scores, 'Simpsons' and Working With Tim Burton

29 June 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The way film composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman tells it, his whole career boils down to two words: "Fuck it." He muttered that philosophical phrase when he offered an opportunity to write his first movie score – for director Tim Burton's feature debut, Pee-wee's Big Adventure – and the musician said it again when given the chance to perform his now-impressive catalog of symphonic cinematic creations in his "Music From the Films of Tim Burton" concert series.

139 movie sequels currently in the works

18 June 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Points of Articulation: Hot Toys Batman Returns and Bruce Wayne

6 May 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

With the overwhelming hate and backlash the naysayers have spewed about the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, it makes me wonder how bad the internet trolling would have been in 1989 when Michael Keaton played the lead role of Tim Burton’s take on The Dark Knight and its sequel. I was a kid when those films were released, and even I remember being a bit concerned that “Beetlejuice” and “Mr. Mom” was going to be playing my favorite superhero on the big screen. I mean, this guy was a comedian, he was too short, and he didn’t fit the M.O. of Bruce Wayne/Batman at all, in any way. He wasn’t classically good looking and he sure as heck didn’t look like he could beat the holy snot out of anybody.

I don’t particularly care for Burton’s Batman films, but there is one »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1988

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Our look at underappreciated films of the 80s continues, as we head back to 1988...

Either in terms of ticket sales or critical acclaim, 1988 was dominated by the likes of Rain Man, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Coming To America. It was the year Bruce Willis made the jump from TV to action star with Die Hard, and became a star in the process.

It was the year Leslie Nielsen made his own jump from the small to silver screen with Police Squad spin-off The Naked Gun, which sparked a hugely popular franchise of its own. Elsewhere, the eccentric Tim Burton scored one of the biggest hits of the year with Beetlejuice, the success of which would result in the birth of Batman a year later. And then there was Tom Cruise, who managed to make a drama about a student-turned-barman into a $170m hit, back when $170m was still an »

One of the zombie apocalypse's most durable survivors, an elite galactic hunter, a well-meaning Mogwai, a ghost with a sense of humor, two vastly different characters from Tim Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas, and more are included in Hallmark's recently unveiled lineup of 2015 holiday ornaments:

Daryl Dixon ornament ($17.95, available October 3rd): "In a post-apocalyptic world, tracker and adept survivalist Daryl Dixon stands tall at the heart of a ragtag group of survivors.

Batman Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Dark Knight

1 May 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy Batman Day, everyone! Around the world, May 1st may mark a spring holiday, but here, it marks the first appearance of the Dark Knight, in Detective Comics No. 27, in 1939.

For the past 76 years, the Caped Crusader has been fighting Gotham City evildoers in comic books, movies, TV shows, and pretty much anywhere else you can shine a Bat-signal. Throughout the years, Bruce Wayne's alter ego has gone through many incarnations, not just in actors (from Adam West to Michael Keaton to Christian Bale to Ben Affleck, among the many), but also in character, from haunted avenger to squeaky-clean do-gooder to campy clown to kinky prowler to world-weary fighter. He's due for yet another change this week, with the releases of DC's Batman No. 40 -- in which Bruce Wayne and the Joker finally kill each other (or do they?) and a special issue of DC's Divergence, where an undisclosed character »

Hollywood & Broadway: Studios Rush to the Stage Despite Clashing Business Models

7 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Hollywood merges with Broadway, there are always fender-benders.

Just ask Harvey Weinstein.

As the movie aficionado and awards maven steered “Finding Neverland,” his first venture as a lead theater producer, toward the Great White Way, eyebrows raised in his wake.

He switched press agents. He swapped out the lead actors. He entirely scrapped an earlier version of the musical with a different creative team. When in spring 2014, he landed a much-coveted spot for the show on the Tony Awards telecast, naysayers tut-tutted that the play hadn’t even begun performances out of town, much less confirmed its Broadway run. Besides, Jennifer Hudson, the star of the Tonys segment, wouldn’t even be appearing in the actual stage production.

“I was criticized for Jennifer,” Weinstein recalls. “But this song (‘Neverland’) has been downloaded a million times, and all over the world people now know ‘Finding Neverland.’ In the movie business, »

SNL: Michael Keaton Revisits 'Batman' & 'Beetlejuice'

6 April 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Coming off his success in the hit Birdman, Michael Keaton hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live over the weekend. His monologue was memorably interrupted by cast members Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan, who asked the legendary actor to reprise his roles as Batman and Beetlejuice. Unfortunately for them, their song-and-dance didn't go quite as planned, when Jay Pharoah interrupts dressed as characters from both of those hit movies.

While Michael Keaton ultimately declines to play both Batman and Beetlejuice, Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan took the liberty of shooting their own Batman and Beetlejuice parodies, using backstage footage of Michael Keaton and crude special effects. When the entire cast comes on stage, dressed in either Batman or Beetlejuice t-shirts, Michael Keaton finally gives the fans what they want.

This episode of Saturday Night Live marked the third time he has hosted the show, following hosting stints from 1982 and 1992. Do you think »

Michael Keaton's Batman-Filled SNL Monologue Is Pure Nostalgia Gold

6 April 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After making a major comeback thanks to award season juggernaut Birdman, Michael Keaton returned to host Saturday Night Live, where he first appeared in 1982. He pokes fun at himself for having his major hits in the '80s, proving that he might be the coolest dude ever. Not only does he let the cast incessantly pester him about what it was like to play Batman, but there's even a Beetlejuice moment in here. Take a look, and if you haven't seen it, check out the ridiculous Scientology parody from the same episode! »

Michael Keaton Plays 'Batman' & 'Beetlejuice' With the 'SNL' Cast (Video)

6 April 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Keaton hosted "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, and while he was there ostensibly to promote his Oscar-nominated role in the Best Picture winner "Birdman," the actor was instead bombarded by requests from the cast the reprise two of his most iconic roles: Batman and Beetlejuice.

During his monologue, Keaton was interrupted by Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan, who begged the actor to "play 'Batman' with us" and "play 'Beetlejuice' with us," citing their childhood love of those two '80s classics. The castmates broke into song to explain how much they idolized Keaton, and those movies in particular, as Keaton stammered and became more and more uncomfortable.

Things escalate until Killam and Moynihan decide to just act out scenes from "Batman" and "Beetlejuice" themselves, hilariously dressing up as characters from each film (Killam as Catherine O'Hara in "Beetlejuice" was especially inspired) and editing Keaton into the clips. »

It’s Showtime! Beetlejuice Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

5 April 2015 8:12 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Let’s turn on the juice and see what shakes loose!”

Beetlejuice plays this weekend (April 10th and 11th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.

It’s showtime! The spring season of the Tivoli Theater’s ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’ midnight series really kicks off this weekend (unless you count this past weekend’s Rocky Horror) with the 1988 favorite Beetlejuice

There’s never been a horror comedy like Tim BurtonBeetlejuice before or since. The film is a nugget of precise mayhem that never seems to get old. Tim Burton and Danny Elfman’s partnership is at or near its peak at this point in their careers, delivering a perfect blend of wildly original visuals and unusually appropriate musical cues, and they get plenty of extra help from the cast; Michael Keaton’s Beetlejuice (Burton originally wanted Sammy Davis Jr for the role! »

Watch: ‘SNL’ Cast Begs Michael Keaton to Reprise Batman, Beetlejuice

5 April 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Keaton may have been recently nominated for an Oscar for his critically acclaimed turn in “Birdman,” but it should be little surprise that his two truly most iconic characters — Batman and Beetlejuice — were mentioned right away when Keaton returned to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

In Keaton’s first “SNL” hosting gig in more than two decades, castmembers Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan crashed his opening monologue, and went into full fanboy mode as they asked Keaton a favor.

“Will you play Batman with us, Michael Keaton?” the two comedians sing. “Come on put the suit, we’ll be the villains that you’ve beaten!”

Keaton doesn’t particularly like the idea at first, but Killam and Moynihan are persistent. The bit even includes a bit of badly edited video, which superimposes the Batman and Beetlejuice costumes onto backstage footage of Keaton as Killam and Moynihan play supporting characters from the movies, »
