The last time Tim Burton teamed up with Disney, it resulted in the hit adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. Now he’s tackling another remake of one of the studio’s animated classic that fits perfectly with the director’s usual circus aesthetic tendencies.
Dumbo adapts the Disney animated classic from 1941, turning the barely one-hour circus adventure into a feature length story starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and an adorable flying elephant with baby blue eyes. A new Dumbo trailer from across the pond shifts focus from the touching but tragic mother and son side of the story and puts the focus on the circus that the floppy-eared little guy gets caught up in.

Hopefully you won’t have to update your computer in order to see the true story of tech giant John McAfee in a new project called King of the Jungle that will be directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You, Phillip Morris). That might not sound all that exciting on the surface, but Michael Keaton is on board to play McAfee in a movie that is being described as more of a dark comedy than a traditional biopic.

Norm Macdonald has had a long, troubled history on television. From his days spent on Saturday Night Live as the brilliant but frequently misunderstood Weekend Update anchor in the 1990s to his consistently canceled shows like Norm, A Minute with Stan Hooper and Sports Show with Norm Macdonald, the comedian can’t seem to catch a break. But maybe that will change with Netflix.
The aptly titled Norm Macdonald Has a Show (E-I-E-I-O) finds the comedian and his sidekick Adam Eget having candid conversations with celebrity guests like David Spade, Judge Judy, David Letterman, Drew Barrymore, Lorne Michaels, M. Night Shyamalan and more. But this doesn’t look like your usual, polished, fluffy anecdote talk show from late night television. Watch the Norm Macdonald Has a Show trailer below to see what we’re dealing with. Read More »

The animated movie that traumatized you as a kid is now a live-action film, adapted by Gothic connoisseur Tim Burton, no less. But Burton’s Disney adaptation of Dumbo surprisingly reigns back the darkness and gives us a little more of that childhood awe in the Dumbo trailer.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
It’s been too long, painfully so, since Michael Keaton got to be even remotely as funny and wild on screen as he is as the title character of Beetlejuice. Keaton has mercifully had a bit of a career revival in the last handful of years, having starred in two of the last four Best Picture winners (remember Birdman and Spotlight?) as well as getting to play the villainous Vulture in last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Though that movie represented a nice reversal of the days when Keaton played the Caped Crusader, Homecoming leaned more into the longtime actor’s darker side.
So watching Beetlejuice 30 years (it hit theaters on March 30, 1988) later feels all the more shocking because it’s a bracing reminder that, even when he was playing a darker-than-life character, Michael Keaton could be as funny as he was scary.
