Tim Burton to Summon Up 'Beetlejuice' Again with Michael Keaton

Warner Bros. Warner Bros.

Tim Burton hasn't exactly been riding high on an originality streak lately. His last movie that was not a sequel, remake or adaptation of some sort was 2005's "Corpse Bride," and before that it'd been almost 10 years.

Sure, it's hard to argue with the numbers — his "Alice in Wonderland" live-actioner brought in 10 figures — but something really special happens when the wild creativity of Tim Burton meets the kind of new material it is meant to (see also "Ed Wood," "Edward Scissorhands").

One such example was with 1988's "Beetlejuice," the namesake deadite of which comes out to play when accidentally summoned by some oddball new homeowners. And now, since absolutely nothing is sacred in Hollywood and all, Burton and lead actor Michael Keaton are ready to get going on the sequelGet More »

'Need for Speed' Trailer: Aaron Paul Breaks Bad with Race Cars

Do you feel the need? The "Need for Speed"? If not, you're about to ... maybe.

Peep this first, explosiony trailer for Scott Waugh's adaptation of EA's popular video game series featuring Tobey Marshall ("Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul), a street racer and struggling garage owner who gets framed for manslaughter by a yuppie former NASCAR driver named Dino (Dominic Cooper) and has payback on the brain once he's finally let out from the yard.

'RoboCop' Trailer: The Future of American Justice

The year 2028 doesn't sound that terribly far away, but a lot can happen in 15 years, people (just ask anyone who remembers the '98 film scene what they think about Hollywood's big re-make machine today).

In the case of "RoboCop," an arguably unnecessary re-tooling of the 1987 award-winning original, technology has advanced to the point that a half-dead police officer can be revived by way of machinery and computerized mind control to become an ass-kicking cyborg who/which does the bidding for this big, evil corporation OmniCorp ... that is, until his even more powerful sense of self-governance sets in and starts to glitch up the system.

7 Surprising Actors Who Started in Stand-Up

Ron Perlman Metacafe

After struggling as a stand-up — maybe the only stage medium where the audience is free to yell terrible things at you if you're no good, they're inebriated or if they just feel like it — the world of trailers and catered meals that is film acting must seem like a cakewalk in comparison. So it's no surprise that some great stand-ups, including Robin Williams, Lily Tomlin and Jamie Foxx, have gone on to become great actors as well. Get More »

Behold! The Ultimate Bruce Wayne

Batman Face Morph

Holy Photoshop Wizardry, Batman!

Reddit user morphinapg has worked some finesse worthy of Batcave technology in merging the features of former Batmen Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale to create the be-all, end-all Caped Crusader (unmasked, of course).

Take a good look. Is that not the face of a billionaire playboy by day, masked vigilante by night? Let Hollywood be on the lookout for a headshot that most resembles the above when it comes time for "Justice League" casting.

Thanks to Heat Vision for the find.

9 Movie Moms We Wish Were Ours

Easy A
Sony

We love our mothers. We wouldn't be here without them. As the years tick by, we become grateful for all the stuff that Mom bugged us about at the time – eating our vegetables, not sitting too close to the television, wearing warm clothes, paying attention in school, etc.

But sometimes, we wish our moms were a little cooler, and more like the ones we see in movies. Our moms grounded us for calling people names and wouldn't let us go to concerts. Movie moms fought killer robots, let their sons tour with rock bands... Our moms freaked out if we got home late, but movie moms are just glad you survived your fight with an evil wizard or supervillain. Get More »
