New “Frankenweenie” Still Shares Quiet Moment

29 December 2011 7:57 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

In 1984 Tim Burton was an animator at Disney looking for a break, and when he was thrown a bone with permission to make something of his own, Frankenweenie was born (if you are interested in seeing Burton’s complete original short, pick up the 1993 Nightmare Before Christmas Collector’s Edition DVD/Blu-Ray tin). The rest, as they say, is history, and history is coming full circle in October of 2012 when Burton’s feature length take on the tale arrives. The film is a reunion of sorts, with Burton bringing the vocal talents of Winona (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands) Ryder, Catherine (Beetlejuice) O’Hara, Martin (Ed Wood) Landau, Martin (Mars Attacks) Short, and Conchata (Edward Scissorhands) Ferrell on board, not to mention the lavish music of constant collaborator Danny Elfman.

Synopsis (courtesy Disney):

“From creative genius Tim Burton comes Frankenweenie, a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog, »

Ten Essential... Christmas Films

24 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jess Barratt selects her ten essential Christmas films...

Here are my top 10 festive treats to get you through the Christmas hangovers. Expect snow, sparkle and choir-lead soundtracks...

10. Edward Scissorhands (1990)

Although this is not typically considered a true Christmas film it does however have rather Christmassy themes and a beautiful festive score written by the talented Danny Elfman. The latter half of this eerie Tim Burton film is entirely set at Christmas time and includes the unforgettable scene where Winona Ryder’s character dances in the snow falling from Edward’s ice sculpture. With fantastic comedic performances by an incredible cast, Edward Scissorhands is sure to get you edging towards the eggnog.

9. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid doing what they do best in this wacky 80s comedy. With some questionable SFX and strange impromptu group singing, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is the perfect nostalgic Christmas feature. »

A Boy and His Undead Dog 'Frankenweenie'

23 December 2011 11:56 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

In Tim Burton's Frankenweenie young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. Arriving in theaters October 5, 2012 from Walt Disney Pictures', we've landed a new look at the new stop-motion film that depicts the young boy and his undead dog. Think he likes bones? The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine OHara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), while Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer later added. While full details are inside, Burton has enlisted the Corpse Bride team for this project. »

Their Holiday Favorites: Brian Satterwhite and the Music of 'Edward Scissorhands'

23 December 2011 11:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Their Holiday Favorites is a series in which members of the Austin film community tell us about movies they enjoy watching during the holiday season. Today's selection is from film composer Brian Satterwhite (Artois the Goat) whose work on the local project "Cell: The Web Series" was nominated for Best Original Score in this year's Iawtv Awards (honoring web programming). Satterwhite's "Cell" compositions really set the tone and engaged me emotionally. Don't miss the brilliant and compelling score he created for Man on a Mission, which is scheduled to be released in theaters and VOD on January 13, 2012. Here are his thoughts on a certain Tim Burton movie:

One of my favorite holiday movies is Edward Scissorhands (1990). Aside from being the film (and the score) that made me want to become a film composer, this modern-day fairy tale evokes many of the emotions, sounds and images I crave at Christmastime.

A New Still from Tim Burton's Frankenweenie

23 December 2011 11:00 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In case you've been so focused on Tim Burton's upcoming Dark Shadows adaptation that it's slipped your mind that he's also working on an animated feature-length take on his classic tale of Frankenweenie, Disney has released a new still from the latter...just in time for Christmas! What the heck? With all the goods the studios have been doling out this week, we're starting to think Christmas is the new Halloween!

In any event, courtesy of Stitch Kingdom, here's a peek at young Victor Frankenstein lying in bed with his faithful pup Sparky beneath him.

The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), along with Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer.

Look for the flick in theatres on October 5th, 2012.

Thn Advent Calendar Day 17: The Nightmare Before Christmas

17 December 2011 4:16 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Christmas is a time for tradition – presents, decorations, carols, and mince pies. But what better tradition to celebrate than the Christmas movie? Join The Hollywood News for the Movie Advent Calendar – a film each day ’til Christmas. For the full Advent Calendar so far, click here.

Few directors can divide an audience like Tim Burton. There are those who’ll lap up his every film, buy the t-shirt and play with the action figure. Then there are those who adamantly dislike his levels of quirk and Helena Bonham Carter. As such, there are swarms of film fans who don’t like A Nightmare Before Christmas. Though the film was not actually directed by Burton (a fact that can probably win a few bets), his oddball fingerprints are smudged over every frame.

To ruin the opening schpiel a little, I’m fairly ambivalent towards Burton. Though I have very little time »

Winona Ryder Does Clueless Wife Duty For 'The Iceman'

12 December 2011 6:53 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Winona Ryder is going to play a killer's wife who doesn't know she's a killer's wife.

The "Black Swan" beauty has signed on to join Michael Shannon and Chris Evans in the chilly mob thriller, "The Iceman," according to Deadline.

"The Iceman" tells the story of Richard Kuklinski (Shannon), a family man who carried out contract killings for the mob. Ryder will be playing Kuklinski's wife, Deborah, who had no idea that her husband was an assassin, with Evans playing Kuklinski's mentor, Robert Pronge.

According to The Playlist, Maggie Gyllenhaal had originally been attached to the role of Deborah, but she's just one of several actors who have dropped out of the running with this project. Benicio del Toro, who also recently said no to "Star Trek 2," was originally going to appear in "The Iceman," and James Franco was first attached to the role of Pronge.

ShockYa's Top 10 Cult Christmas Films

Not all Christmas films are bright and cheery. Some of them are dark, slightly macabre, or just plain oddball. Here are the top 10 cult Christmas films, as chosen by ShockYa. In this list, you’ll see films that involve murder, skeletons, ghosts, terrorists, DC Comic book characters and men with tools for hands, all revolving around that age-old holiday of good will and cheer. 1. “Edward Scissorhands” (1990): This Tim Burton classic stars Johnny Depp as the lovable misfit “human” creation (is he a cyborg? A Frankenstein-esque creature?) with scissors for hands due to his creator dying unexpectedly before completing him. When he’s taken in by a kindly Avon saleswoman »

'Dark Shadows': Johnny Depp, Vampires, Spooky First Looks In 2011

We relive the best moments of the year as production on Tim Burton's 2012 adaptation finally kicked off.

This year, filming finally began on director Tim Burton's long-in-the-works big-screen adaptation of "Dark Shadows," a campy, late-1960s soap opera about vampires, witches and time travel. Burton is a lifelong fan of the series and, as his partner Helena Bonham Carter told MTV News this month, "This was a thing that he raced home to see when he was about age 10."

With its atmospheric New England setting and myriad mysterious characters, "Shadows" has the feel of a classic Burton film, more akin to his "Sleepy Hollow" and "Batman" flicks than his more candy-colored efforts like "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." And Burton at his dark and spooky best, working on a passion project, »

‘Kick-Ass’ Writer Jane Goldman To Pen Tim Burton’s ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’

2 December 2011 6:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Jane Goldman rules. With her great accent, awesome red hair, and big, beautiful...talent, she's becoming one of the most exciting screenwriters in Hollywood. She's co-written Stardust, Kick-Ass, The Debt and X-Men: First Class with Matthew Vaughn, she's got The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe [1] coming soon and now Deadline reports she's in talks to adapt the book Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, possibly for director [2] Tim Burton. Deadline [3]'s article makes it clear that Burton hasn't completely committed to the project, but it's a priority for 20th Century Fox, especially because they hope Goldman will team with Vaughn to assist with the X-Men: First Class sequel [4]. As per Russ's initial article [5] on Miss Peregrine, it's "the story of an old orphanage and its strange and possibly dangerous residents" and the original book, by Ransom Riggs blends that story with a bunch of old photographs that are »

Chloë Moretz: 'I'm not cussing and killing people – I'm normal'

1 December 2011 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From kicking ass and drinking blood to making kids movies with Martin Scorsese, Chloë Moretz tells Cath Clarke why she's excited to shoot a film she can finally legally buy a ticket to see

'I mean, nothing really happens in your life until you're 14 or 15. And even then you're still a child." Chloë Moretz is thinking back to how she made sense of her character in Let Me In – a centuries-old, pint-sized, preteen vampire. Nothing happens – until you're 15? That's not exactly how life as 14-year-old Moretz has lived it. Take Monday night: she was at the Royal Film Performance of Hugo, Martin Scorsese's children's adventure (yes, really). She met Prince Charles, and pictures show her co-star in the film, Asa Butterfield – also 14: Moretz is older by a month – standing beside her, nervy in his stiff, grownup tux. But not Chloë (or Chloë Grace, as she currently prefers to »

Ewan McGregor Set For Noah Baumbach’s HBO Series The Corrections

28 November 2011 12:00 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

One of the handful of British talents well known and loved on beyond our shores, and in my opinion one of the finest actors working at the moment, Ewan McGregor is now set to join Oscar-nominated writer-director Noah Baumbach’s adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s acclaimed novel, The Corrections, Deadline report.

The adaptation has been set up at HBO, with the first episode already scripted by both Franzen and Baumbach, and the latter is set to direct the pilot, which is brilliant news. McGregor is joining Chris Cooper (American Beauty, The Town) and Dianne Wiest (Edward Scissorhands) in what is shaping up to be a fantastic cast.

Published back in 2001, Franzen’s original novel,

“revolves around the troubles of a Midwestern couple (Cooper and Wiest), and their three adult children as they trace their lives from the mid-20th century to “one last Christmas” together near the turn of the millennium. »

Chloe Moretz Says 'Dark Shadows' Gets Back To Vintage Tim Burton

22 November 2011 9:21 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Judging by the early promotions for Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows," it should come as no surprise that the "Edward Scissorhands" director is going back to his gothic roots in this film. The remake of the cult classic TV series stars all his regular actors and, judging by the set photos released, is a return to form for Burton after "Alice in Wonderland" and "Sweeney Todd." That's why it should come as no surprise that leading lady Chloe Moretz is thrilled to be working on the film with him, especially because Burton is her dream director.

"It straddles the typical Burton line: camp and drama," Moretz explained. "This is a really good role for Johnny [Depp] I think because he totally sold it because it's so weird. It's such a weird character and he can do weird. He does so much with his hands."

Moretz described the look of the film as "amazing, »

The Crow

21 November 2011 9:47 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

What happens when Batman, the wrestler Sting and Edward Scissorhands all have a love child together? You get one hell of a cool superhero film. The film I’m talking about is The Crow and if you have overlooked this gritty crime thriller in the past, then I highly recommend giving it a try now. It’s out on Blu-ray and digital copy and it would be the perfect stocking-stuffer for your Goth/alternative significant other.

The Crow is a dark and violent tale of a man named Eric Draven (Brandon Lee), who on the night before Halloween known as Devil’s Night gets murdered along with his fiance by a random gang. The couple were to be wed on Halloween but a less fortunate outcome awaited them. One year later, a crow sits on top of Draven’s gravestone and seconds later, Draven emerges from the grave alive and disoriented. »

Costume designer Colleen Atwood has dressed Johnny Depp for eight films, five of which were directed by Tim Burton. The pair's collaboration dates all the way back to 1990's "Edward Scissorhands" and continues to this day with Burton's latest flick, "Dark Shadows."

In the film, Depp plays centuries-old vampire Barnabas Collins, who is awakened in the late '60s and tries to forge a relationship with his modern descendents. Atwood recently revealed to MTV News that while Depp is most certainly involved in the costuming process, he's come to trust her enough to let her work her magic.

"Johnny's very open about what things are in the process, but he really lets people present things to him. He never really pushes at all, »
