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 »

Oscar might be the word of the day, but for some folks, their own names were what rung loudest and proudest during this morning's 2013 Academy Award nominations read-out. Sure, some of them were just as baffled by some of the snubs as the vociferous folks of the Twitterverse, but they couldn't complain too much because, hey, they just got a chance at the most elite prize in the biz.

So, in the day's spirit of actors and such talking about actors and such, we've gathered here the nominees' various reactions to this year's nods. You can probably read between the lines on a few of these.

Best Actresses

Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook": "I'm so honored and grateful for this nomination and to be in the company of such talented actresses. Having the fortunate opportunity to work with David O. Russell was an extraordinary gift and I am so thrilled for my fellow cast members Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver who are all nothing short of amazing. This was a labor of love that we all poured our hearts into and could not be more thankful to The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein for their unyielding support of the film" (ET Online).

If you've ever said that, you're either recreationally into that sort of thing (and we here at NextMovie hold no judgment) or you're a Hollywood director married to an actress in the movie you're directing. Get More »

Tim Burton Gets Even Creepier with New Killers Music Video

The Killers, "Here with Me" Vevo

Some people go to therapy. Tim Burton makes a music video.

The "Frankenweenie" director seems to be working out some personal issues with the music video for The Killers' "Here With Me," the new single from the band's latest album, "Battle Born." Some of it's kind of cute. And some of it might make your skin crawl a little.

We agree with Shock Till You Drop that the whole thing has a "Love Object" (remember that movie?) and "Lars and the Real Girl" (we know you remember that one) kind of vibe with its tale of a young weirdo pining after some sort of inanimate object made to look like a woman (in this case, a sort of wax museum statue). But there's a little more going on here than just a twisted yet whimsical love story ... Get More »

It's Alive! At Least, in 6 'Frankenweenie' Clips

Frankenweenie Disney

In 1984, visionary director Tim Burton made a short film  called "Frankenweenie" for Disney so unrelentingly weird they fired him from the studio. A few decades later, Disney's letting Burton make a feature length version ... with stop-motion animation ... in black and white. Yep, a few billion dollars in box office gives you clout.

Just like this charmingly ghoulish project was brought back from the movie graveyard, the main school-age character Victor Frankenstien brings his beloved dog Sparky back to life through the all-purpose miracle of lightning. These clips should put electrodes on your funny bone. Get More »
