Idw Publishing has announced an Edward Scissorhands sequel comic.
The five-issue miniseries will apparently feature the little girl who Winona Ryder's character told her story to in the movie.
"In a castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands... but left him tragically unfinished," reads Idw's solicitation.
"Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn't the only one missing a vital piece.
"As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face to face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth... despite the stories her grandmother told her, about the man she could never touch. »
'Breaking Bad' might be over but that doesn't mean your dream of being Walter White has to die. But instead of making Blue Sky Cupcakes, have you considered turning your noggin' into a shrine to everyone's favorite cancer patient turned drug dealer? If so, Rob The Original can hook you up. The irony of course being you have to have hair to become Heisenberg. The Los Angeles native moved to San Antonio, he combined his background as an artist with his skill as a barber to create some mind-bogglingly detailed hair art. Check out the finished design below! Bonus! Since it is now painfully obvious that 'Breaking Bad' is merely a superb prequel to 'The Walking Dead,' I'd be remiss not to show off Rob's take on the AMC walkers. Of course, in the event of an actual zombie apocalypse, this customer would be »

This fall the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the final showing of the groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building, the future location of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, at Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles. Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), this ticketed exhibition explores the central role of costume design – from the glamorous to the very subtle – as an essential tool of cinematic storytelling.
The Academy is enhancing the V&A’s exhibition and will include more than 145 costumes from over 60 lenders. The Academy’s presentation will add more than 30 costumes to this landmark show, including Jared Leto’s costume from Dallas Buyers Club (Kurt and Burt, 2013) – a recent acquisition to the Academy’s collection – as well as costumes from such recent releases as The Hunger Games (Judianna Makovsky, 2012), Django Unchained (Sharen Davis, »

After a spectacular crash-landing on an uncharted planet, brash astronaut Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) finds himself trapped in a savage world where talking apes dominate the human race. Desperate to find a way home, Leo must evade the invincible gorilla army led by ruthless General Thade (Tim Roth) and his most trusted warrior, Attar (Michael Clarke Duncan). Now the pulse-pounding race is on to reach a sacred temple that may hold the shocking secrets of mankind's past - and the last hope for it's salvation! Based on Pierre Boulle's classic novel "Planet of the Apes," the premise for this film has become one of the most recognized and provocative concepts in the canon of science fiction literature and cinema. Visionary filmmaker Tim Burton (Batman, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow) has taken Boulle's basic idea and built upon it a uniquely envisioned journey to an incredible upside-down world. Actors: Mark Wahlberg »
We don’t go to the cinema much, because we hate people. We also don’t go because there’s always the risk of accidentally going to see the wrong film. It's not helped by the fact that there's no way of telling until it’s too late, because there are no bloody opening credits on lots of modern films. And by the time you do realise, you’ve eaten all your popcorn and you can’t be bothered to move.
The movies on this list won’t give you that problem. These opening credits are perfect scene setters for the movies that follow, so you won’t have to worry about awkward popcorn wasting moments. It's not a top 50, rather a selection of 50 interesting credits sequences, »

The Internet is a place to foster our most passionate opinions on movies, though often these views might be fickle and ill-informed, born from an unsubstantiated rumour or a secret set picture that hasn’t had the usual studio-mandated airbrushing and lighting.
On the other hand, sometimes audiences are right to be skeptical about some upcoming movies, and so studios have to devote lots of time and energy to convincing potential customers that their movie is, in fact, worth shelling out for.
A well-placed trailer can do this perfectly, but if that’s too much work or filming just isn’t far along enough yet, often studios will release single promotional stills, or better yet, allow set images to “leak” so as to gauge the audience reaction to certain aspects of the production without doing so publically.
These 15 movies are all releasing under a certain degree of audience scrutiny, »

The Disney Channel aired a surreal version of the classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel on Halloween in 1983. The 35-minute live-action short, directed by then-unknown filmmaker Tim Burton, featured Japanese actors in the parts of the siblings who are hunted by a cannibal witch deep in the forest and lured to a house made of cake and candy. The film's near avant-garde sets reveal the beginnings of a style that would later become popular in Burton's Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, here more spare. Burton made the movie while employed as an animator at Disney for a mere $116,000. The short practically vanished from the face of the Earth — at least until this week when some kind soul posted it to YouTube. Travel back in time to Burton's early years...

The film stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz as an infamous pair of artists... of sorts. Margaret Keane was the artist but it was Walter Keane who got the credit for the well known paintings of sad children with ginormous eyes. In fact, as "Sage" points out in the test screening review at Head Over Feels in a great piece of trivia I was hardly aware of, Burton is a long time fan and commissioned a portrait of Lisa Marie, his former muse, who once cut such an indelible figure in his movies. (I think she's best in Ed Wood and Mars Attacks!)
Anyway, you should read the post if you're interested since there's a lot of Oscar talk (Amy= sure thing / Christoph »

Most of the writers here at Thn grew up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon show and film series so we were all a little dubious when plans for a reboot were announced. After having a sit down chat with William Fichthner (who will be playing Shredder) and hearing his overwhelming praise for the project we started to warm to the idea. So far we have been given two slightly different versions of the same trailer but it was enough to show that there may well be life in this franchise yet.
The poster campaign has of course stuck to the turtle quartet of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo with the stills released focusing on Megan Fox as April O’Neal. This has meant that meaning we have yet to see their nemesis The Shredder. This was rectified today as a Shredder still has snuck its way onto twitter, »

It dices, it slices! We have a first good look at Shredder from Jonathan Liebesman's new live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. If you thought Super Shredder was insane, look at this walking Edward Scissorhands/Freddy Krueger identity crisis. William Fitchner is playing Shredder as we know but have yet to see more than a few seconds of him from the trailers. Shredder in HD quality in the upcoming #TMNTMovie. That's some high tech armor. #Tmnt #NinjaTurtles »

Two years ago, Emma Watson jumped on board a film called Beauty, a live-action Beauty and the Beast adaptation. This is not to be confused with the other live-action adaptation taking shape over at Disney, which Bill Condon signed on to direct last week.
This particular iteration of the classic story is in Warner Brothers’ hands, and was intended to be helmed by Guillermo del Toro. Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Denise di Novi was also on board as a producer. Today, however, del Toro reportedly dropped out of the project, which is quite a shame, because he and di Novi would have made quite the team.
Deadline reported the story, only citing del Toro’s other commitments as the reason for vacating the director’s hair. That definitely makes sense, considering he’s still working on his haunted house film Crimson Peak, and has a plethora of »

It seems like just yesterday Johnny Depp was charming small-screen audiences on 21 Jump Street, but since his big break in the '80s, Johnny has evolved from teen heartthrob to established leading man. Over the years, he's brought us memorable characters like Gilbert Grape, Edward Scissorhands, and Jack Sparrow and has taken on tons of different looks both on and off screen. In honor of his 51st birthday on Monday, we're charting Johnny Depp's evolution from fresh-faced hottie (the Kate Moss, Winona Ryder, Viper Room days) to the hat-wearing, guitar-playing king of Hollywood. See the full transformation when you keep reading. »

Johnny Depp turns 51 this week - we can't believe it either - and his birthday has given us a great reason to take stock of his many movie roles. Depp has become famous for donning crazy costumes and makeup from one character to the next, throughout his career, in movies like Edward Scissorhands and Pirates of the Caribbean. Some looks are scary, some are sexy, and some are just plain strange. See them all here, and then reflect on how your crush on him has had just as many weird phases. - Additional reporting by Shannon Vestal »

Despite being fortunate enough to be raised on a healthy diet of horror, I can’t deny the fact I was born in 1990. I was born long after our most beloved genre actors got their start and made their mark in horror, and there are plenty of horror icons that I didn’t first see in their iconic roles. Tony Todd, Bruce Campbell, and Jamie Lee Curtis were three actors I was fortunate enough to see in their career changing roles. However, I know a good amount of horror icons from films they probably wish they could expunge from their resumes.
Horror Icon: Lance Henriksen
Role I Know: Kerchak from Disney’s Tarzan

Something tells us this parody trailer is a pretty good indicator of what we can expect from Sofia Coppola's live-action take on The Little Mermaid. Created by the folks over at Funny or Die, the clip finds AnnaSophia Robb playing Ariel to Evan Peters' Prince Eric. Not surprising, the clip offers up a hipster version of the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale, complete with several nods to the look, feel and mood of the director's Lost in Translation, Somewhere and The Bling Ring. Oh, and an indie music-filled soundtrack to boot, of course. A script for the real Little Mermaid movie has been in the works for a while, and Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands, The Addams Family) is »
Apparently, I picked the wrong couple of weeks to go on vacation because I missed a lot in the world of Supernatural! Don’t worry, though, I’m back and fully caught up on Gabriel’s reappearance (sort of), Dean’s shower scene, and Jody’s brush with the bloodsuckers. As to what the heck happened on last night’s episode? I was watching, I’m just still not sure it was the same show (it wasn’t.)
Let’s get some real world stuff out of the way first before we get to reviewing last night’s episode. This episode wasn’t an episode of Supernatural; it was a backdoor pilot episode for the Supernatural spinoff: Bloodlines that leveraged Dean and Sam’s pretty mugs to make us watch, so if you were confused as to why our boys were barely there/recognizable, now you know.
It all starts »

It seems to me a kind of cruelty – a misuse of parental power – to raise a child solely on a cinematic diet of cheery animated animals, moral motor cars and fables of sisterly love. Such sunny stories foster optimism, anthropomorphism and an increased risk of jazz hands in later life. No, far better to nourish your offspring’s imagination with deeper darker fictions that dare to confront the creatures of their nightmares and let those interesting folk take centre stage. Anything to avert a future request for tap dance classes and stage school. Unabashed happiness can be an ugly, ugly thing.
For my generation, and many that preceded it, Disney’s Maleficent was such a creature. A menacing composite of every sorceress and dark queen who ever stalked a fairy tale kingdom – haughty, manipulative and ruthless with blood red nails and a penchant for arch-villain couture. Her horned headdress and »

We all know history is written by the film producers. After all, the past is big bucks for Hollywood, what with all its ready-made stories and epic happenings. And luckily for us Vesuvius erupted in 79 Ad, spewing out lava, pyroclastic flows and poisonous gasses. Some in nearby Herculaneum died instantly, others in Pompeii had a more drawn out affair and even the dog got it (noooo, not the dog!). Whatever – it’s good cinema right?
So to celebrate the release of new historical disaster movie Pompeii, let Thn take you on a magical history tour into the past. Yes, it’s time to pull the annals of antiquity down from the shelf, dust them off and explore ye olden times with five historical renditions from cinema and television.

Reflecting upon the career of Johnny Depp it is forgivable to peer back over the actor’s filmography absent-mindedly overlooking the roles which rocketed him towards the status he holds within Hollywood today. Whilst you could count his starring roles in films directed by Tim Burton on both hands with relative ease, it could be argued that Depp’s career has been somewhat shackled by the weight of these performances.
If Edward Scissorhands is the film which unleashed Depp as the superstar he was to become, it is probable that Ed Wood is a respectable shout as the performance of his colourful career. This list ignores these roles however, casting Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd et al. aside in favour of his other performances which deserve reflection – perfect time considering Depp returns to the big screen in Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence, which is out in cinemas right now.
