Beetlejuice

For the past several years now, Warner Bros. and everyone involved have gone back and forth on Beetlejuice 2. The studio got the ball rolling in 2011 when they hired Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg to write, and since then, Tim BurtonWinona Ryder, and Michael Keaton have all weighed in every so often with varying degrees of optimism about the movie actually happening. And as of now, Keaton is sounding pretty damn pessimistic. “It’s possible that ship has sailed,” the actor admitted in a recent interview.  Read More »

Michael Keaton Spider-Man

UPDATE #2: On April 13th, 2016 it was reported that Michael Keaton was in early talks to join Spider-Man: Homecoming. A week later we learned that the talks had fallen through. Well, it’s a month later and things have changed once again.

According to THRMichael Keaton is now in final negotiations to join Spider-Man: Homecoming as a villain. Apparently Marvel’s “initial overtures towards Keaton didn’t get past the offer stage” and the company “moved on to other actors before returning to Keaton.” It’s unclear which villain Keaton will play in the new film although BDM had previously reported that the Vulture will be one of the film’s bad guys and that doesn’t seem like a stretch for the former Birdman/Batman star.

Beetlejuice

We’ve been hearing bits and pieces of news regarding Beetlejuice 2 for a few years now. Back in 2012, director Tim Burton was waiting to see how Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg‘s script turned out, saying he’d keep an “open mind” about directing the sequel. The director’s interest in the project has significantly risen over the years, but he still has some understandable reservations about making the film.

the founder trailer

Every successful business is a story. There are those hopeful and desperate beginnings, when someone puts their livelihood on the line to pursue a dream. There are those dramatic rises to power, where everything pays off and the money and accolades start to roll in. And, often enough, there are those dramatic third acts where all kinds of chickens come home to roost and the shape of that original dream has been distorted beyond measure.

The Founder tells the story of Ray Kroc, the struggling businessman who stumbled across a homegrown hamburger restaurant called McDonald’s, recognized its potential for greatness, and dragged it kicking and screaming into the future, where it set the template for how Americans would consume food for the rest of the century and beyond. Oh, and as the new trailer makes it clear, he was probably a bit of a dick.

Sideshow Collectibles Beetlejuice

At a couple points in your life, you’ve probably said Beetlejuice to yourself three times, just to see what would happen. Sadly, it just doesn’t work the way it does in Tim Burton‘s classic 1988 horror comedy. But now if you say Beetlejuice three times and you have some extra cash lying around, you can finally summon Beetlejuice into your house.

Sideshow Collectibles has just unveiled a new sixth scale Beetlejuice figure, along with the tombstone environment where Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis dug up the bio-exorcist played perfectly by Michael Keaton. Check out the Sideshow Collectibles Beetlejuice figure below! Read More »

Spotlight trailer

Writer-director Tom McCarthy has had one bizarre year. He wrote and directed one of the year’s finest films, Spotlight, and also The Cobbler — a movie so strange and tonally troubled you must watch it. McCarthy, to my surprise, also had a role in this summer’s Pixels. The man keeps busy. But Spotlight is the movie everyone keeps talking about, and for good reason. It’s an all around excellent film, with an efficient script, taught direction, and quietly riveting performances.

After the jump, watch Tom McCarthy break down a Spotlight scene.
