    Tim Burton Actually In Legitimate Talks To Direct Michael Keaton in ‘Beetlejuice 2′

    In the 28 years that Tim Burton has been making feature-length films he’s made a sequel only once: “Batman Returns,” the 1992 sequel to “Batman” in 1989. Of course there is “Frankenweenie,” but that’s a feature-length remake/expansion Burton's 1984 short film of the same name. And while the Hallowee...

    That 'Gremlins' Reboot Is Still Happening & The Guy Behind 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Is Producing

    You might have forgotten or blocked it from your memory, but earlier this year news surfaced that Warner Bros. was in negotiations with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment to reboot "Gremlins." Why? Just because and probably because it's a property that people know and has yet to be scorched and...

    White House Secrets Revealed In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'

    So let’s get this straight: slavery in the U.S. lasted so long because vampires supported it. In fact, Jefferson Davis made a deal between the Confederacy and the undead. That explains a lot, including why Abraham Lincoln was so determined to obliterate vampires, even to the point of snea...

    Tim Burton & Timur Bekmambetov Talk The "Superhero Origin Story" Of 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' & Why They Went 3D

    When Seth Grahame-Smith began to write the “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” he didn’t let the epiphany of a wacky title affect his dead-serious alternate universe story -- our 16th President, leader of the people by day, and slayer of the undead at night. Though he couldn’t have expected that the ...

    Reacting To 'Twilight,' Potential Sequels & More From The Press Tour For Tim Burton & Johnny Depp's 'Dark Shadows'

    Whether you end up loving it or hating it (as our reviewer did), one has to admit that there are few films like "Dark Shadows" in theaters this summer. Based on the popular 1960s/1970s ABC soap that included vampires, werewolves and witches, the film is a curious blend of comedy, drama and horror th...

    Review: 'Dark Shadows' Is Another Lazy, Incoherent Disappointment From Tim Burton

    “Dark Shadows” is not the worst movie that Tim Burton has ever made, but that’s only because there’s nothing worse than “Alice in Wonderland.” A desperate jumble of ideas in search of deeper substance, much less focus, Burton’s latest collaboration with actor Johnny Depp is the latest, and perhaps g...

    Could 'The Scorpio Races' Be The Next 'Twilight' Or 'Hunger Games'? Warner Bros. Developing

    Let's face it, Summit Entertainment continues to make films because of the insane profits from the "Twilight" franchise. The three films already released from the franchise have grossed a combined $1.8 billion worldwide from theatrical releases alone, and that doesn't include DVD and all the film licensing the company also has a meaty stake in. The success of the series showed a massive untapped potential in teenagers and the young adult audience (that wasn't the "Harry Potter" crowd) and studios took notice immediately. While, in the three years that have passed (the first film was released in 2008), not one studio has released a viable comp...
