One of Tim Burton‘s best films is still Edward Scissorhands starring Johnny Depp. This year just happens to mark the 25th anniversary of the peculiar suburban fantasy about a misfit creation named Edward who has scissors for hands who ends up being taken in by family who in many ways is just as strange as the title character. So what better time to revisit the neighborhood where Burton’s story unfolds?
Just by looking at the suburban setting of Edward Scissorhands, you would think that the entire neighborhood was a film set. But it’s a real neighborhood, and it’s still around to this very day. But it looks remarkably different than it did in 1990 with one key difference that changes its entire appearance. See the Edward Scissorhands neighborhood 25 years later after the jump! Read More »

Superman Lives, the ’90s effort that saw Tim Burton working on a Superman movie starring Nicolas Cage and originally scripted by Kevin Smith, is one of those “could have been” projects that continues to haunt fans.

The movie is also doing some roadshow engagements, with a planned appearance at Comic Con.
Now you can check out a clip from the film, and it’s a big deal for those who’ve seen costume pics from the film over the years.

Or maybe he just wants to see the genre change altogether. The filmmaker also criticized the Marvel formula, and predicted that moviegoers would tire of superhero films some day. And yet, all that said, he admits he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of helming another superhero film.

In the script, the store was promptly destroyed, but eventually the scene got cut at some point anyway. The set was built, though, and one website has some incredible photos of it. Check out the Batman Returns Batman store below. Read More »
