Cinema legend has it that if you say his name three times, Beetlejuice will appear. Given how often the Beetlejuice sequel has been discussed in the press, we should have like, eight more of these movies by now. And although the long-gestating project remains unofficial, Warner Bros. has brought on a new writer to take a crack at writing a screenplay worthy of luring Tim Burton and Michael Keaton back for more spooky fun.
Tim Burton has officially begun production on his live-action version of Dumbo, the most depressing Disney movie of all time. (Okay, maybe that’s up for debate, but this movie wrecked me as a child.) We’ve heard rumors about the cast for a while now, from Colin Farrell to Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton, and they’re all true! The casting news, along with some plot details and an official release date was announced today during Disney’s live-action panel at the D23 Expo.
The MTV Movie & TV Awards have always been kind to our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. In 2003, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man took home awards for Kirsten Dunst and Best Kiss — seriously, who can forget that upside down kiss in the rain? — as well as nominations for Best Actor, Best Villain, and Best Movie. So with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming on its way into theaters this summer, what better place to premiere a brand new trailer? Odds are MTV’s voters will have Tom Holland on the stage next year for Best Hero in the upcoming film. Man, I wish all award shows had categories this fun.
