No matter how many times you repeat the word Beetlejuice it appears the ghost with the most is most likely not going to appear. Though rumors (bordering on confirmations) have been constantly swirling about a sequel Michael Keaton himself h...

Big Eyes Review photo

Review: Big Eyes

Everyone, I'm about to shock you to your core. Big Eyes is a Tim Burton film and it is quite possible that the color black doesn't appear once. Shades of greys and shadows, yes, but the Gothic trendings of the director are almost compl...

First trailer for Tim Burton's Big Eyes

Since Tim Burton's latest string of films have all been of the family variety, sometimes I forget that he's always got something big up his sleeve. That looks to be his latest project, Big Eyes. Starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz ...

WB once had to defend Tim Burton's Batman in this 1988 video

Before Warner Bros puts Superman and Batman in the same movie, we should remember how we got to this point. While Tim Burton's take on Batman was liked by most fans for reasons, Warner Bros had to prove to shareholders that the whole ...

Nick's Flixmas: The Nightmare Before Christmas

If you've ever stepped into a Hot Topic or talked to a thirteen year old during their "dark" phase, chances are you've heard of The Nightmare Before Christmas. How and why did it blow up the way it did? It's a great film, but after yea...

Winona Ryder will probably be back for Beetlejuice 2

Although little over a year ago Winona Ryder responded with a sigh and eye roll when asked about her possible involvement with the upcoming sequel to Beetlejuice, I suppose things have changed now that Tim Burton and Michael Keaton have ret...

Tim Burton in talks for Beetlejuice 2, Keaton returning

KatzSmith Productions has been kicking around the rights and ideas for a Beetlejuice rebootquel for awhile now, so we all knew it was going to exist someday in some capacity. Most of us feared that a new Beetlejuice would somehow ruin our c...

Kickstart a documentary on Tim Burton's Superman Lives

Tim Burton's Superman Lives would have been an oddball Superman film. Not oddball in the kooky Mort Weisinger way, but just f**king bonkers. Robotic rainbow suits, Nic Cage, giant spiders, Burtonized Brainiac. That's why Jon Schnepp is try...

These new Frankenweenie posters are all vintagey and cute

To help ring in the month of "Monstober," Disney has released six new posters for Tim Burton's recently released stop-motion movie Frankenweenie. The movie's story centers around a young Victor Frankenstein who brings his beloved pet dog --...

Review: Frankenweenie

Let's be real: Tim Burton hasn't exactly been churning out hits lately. Between Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows, it's hard to have a lot of faith in the man anymore. What seemed to be passion projects seem more and more to be sad shado...

Winona Ryder so not excited about Beetlejuice 2

As you may have heard, Tim Burton is making a sequel to Beetlejuice. Seth Grahame-Smith, the screenwriter behind Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is working on a draft at the moment. Michael Keaton will be returning. Some of us are cautiousl...

Two new Frankenweenie clips get creepy with it

Although these are essentially extended versions of scenes you could find in the trailer, they do last long enough to give a little of the creepy vibe that is going to flow through Frankenweenie. Most notably, the score samples in the two ...

Trailer: Frankenweenie

Disney released a new "Homage" trailer for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie for the lucky few -- that I'm extremely jealous of -- at Comic-Con this weekend. The trailer is named for its callbacks to the original Frankenstein's Monster relea...

Watch this cool 360 degree tour of Frankenweenie's sets

I always love behind the scenes things for stop motion films. It's so magical for me to have a look at the real scale of these puppets and sets with real people milling about and working in them. Disney has heard my desires for cool behind ...

Trailer: Frankenweenie

Frankenweenie is Tim Burton's...fifth last chance from me? Something like that. The man's oeuvre hasn't exactly been stellar for the past fifteen years, so the dude's got a lot of goodwill to reclaim from me. Every single thing I've s...

8 new posters for Frankenweenie show off characters

While a lot of people nowadays think that Tim Burton has gone a little off his rocker, perhaps returning to stop-motion animation will bring back what we first loved about the ubiquitous director. His upcoming Frankenweenie is a black and w...

Even Tim Burton doesn't know what he's doing anymore

Tim Burton's a busy man these days. He's got three movies coming out this year; two he directed (Frankenweenie and Dark Shadows) and one he produced (Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter). That being said, when Collider asked what his plans were ...

Tim Burton finds new favorite to write stop-motion script

We don't usually cover gossip here on Flixist, but Tim Burton's love life trumps previous policies. Burton's previous love affair with Johnny Depp has not gone unnoticed, as he casts the man in damn near all of his projects. He's recently t...

Meet the family with character posters for Dark Shadows

When most of us here at Flixist saw the set photos for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, we were unsure about this project. Burton's got such a signature style now, which sometimes falls flat, so a lot of people were hesitant to get behind Dark Sh...

Trailer: Frankenweenie

Tim Burton's latest movie seems to offer up some classic stop-motion animation goodness we haven't seen since The Corpse Bride. I always think it's interesting that most The Nightmare Before Christmas fans seem to be under the impression t...

Tim Burton weighs in on Beetlejuice sequel

You may have heard that there's a Beetlejuice sequel in the works. We'll just call this story a sequel to that other story about a Beetlejuice sequel (I just really love sequels). A bit of a refresher, KatzSmith Productions (comprised of Se...

Tim Burton may do Pinocchio with Robert Downey, Jr.

What is it about Pinocchio these days? How did Carlo Collodi's kooky fairy tale get so popular with Hollywood? There's a stop-motion Pinocchio from the Jim Henson Company produced by Guillermo del Toro in the works, Shawn Levy (Night a...

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter posters sit and stew

The first two posters for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter are out, and we see the moody, vampire-killingest president sitting deep in thought. He's in the same pose both indoors and outdoors. No, not just the same pose -- it's the same...

Dark Shadows set photos, Johnny Depp looks ridiculous

Oh, come on... What the f*ck? Why is it every Tim Burton film has to turn into some kind of perverse drag show for Johnny Depp to parade around in horrible clothes and makeup? Why must the pairing of these two men always equal Johnny Depp h...

Frankenweenie producers talk shop

Frankenweenie was a movie I first heard of about a year ago. What immediately went through my mind was that Tim Burton was self-flagellating himself and just trying to remake something that he'd already done. After careful and somewhat res...

Vampires are the new Vampires

It's nice to dream, but Fairies are the new Vampires? Not a chance. If anyone's thinking Spies are the new Vampires instead, that guy's just as delusional. No, if anything is set to replace the massive influx of vampire fiction dominating...

Sleeping Beauty script attaches Hailee Steinfeld as lead

Yep, the fairy tale fad keeps on letting hair fall out the window of the money tower that is Hollywood. Even though Alice in Wonderland was mostly despised, it still went on to be the second highest domestic earner of 2010, bested only by T...
