    Watch: Tim Burton-Directed Video For The Killers' 'Here With Me' With Winona Ryder & Craig Roberts

    It's been a bit of a bummer 2012 for Tim Burton. His big screen reboot of the forgotten '70s show "Dark Shadows" didn't do so well critically or at the box office, and when his feature-length "Frankenweenie" arrived to good reviews, audiences didn't seem to care. But it looks like he's ending the ye...

    Tim Burton Wanted To Make A 'House Of Wax' Musical Starring Michael Jackson

    While Tim Burton eventually scratched his musical itch with 2007's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street," it appears at one time he had an even more ambitious plan in mind. A project that would bring together the biggest pop star in the world and one of the most famed horror movies of all...

    Discuss: After Two Flops In Six Months, What's Next For Tim Burton?

Reteaming once again with frequent collaborator Johnny Depp, the pair took "Alice In Wonderland" to over a billion dollars worldwide, surfing the 3D wave in the aftermath of the success of "Avatar," and demonstrating once again that the pai...

    Immersed in Movies: Will Animated Black-and-White 3-D 'Frankenweenie' Win Burton His First Oscar?

    "Frankenweenie" is not only Tim Burton's best film since "Big Fish" (another rite of passage story), but also a lock for a best animated feature nomination.
