If you’re a huge fan of filmmaker Tim Burton and his collaborations with brilliant composer Danny Elfman, then sometime over the past couple of years you might have been able to catch the special concert running through a wonderful collection of music from their work together. But if you weren’t able to attend this incredible event, you can still watch it right now.
A recent episode of PBS series Live from Lincoln Center broadcast a nearly two-hour cut of the concert which features selections from Batman, Beetlejuice, Alice in Wonderland, Big Fish, Edward Scissorhands and more.

Just last week, the first teaser trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass arrived, the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter all get their own posters, reprising their characters from the first film.

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.

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.

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.
