Abraham Lincoln, Superhero?

Posted by Tim Sheehy on May 3, 2012 in Cinema, Horror

I know we’ve been posting quite a few trailers lately, but this latest featurette for Tim Burton’s big screen adaption of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is definitely worth watching. So far, the trailers for the film have featured plenty of special effects, and fast cuts of the film’s over-the-top action sequences, but until now, we really haven’t had a close look at the actual fights between Lincoln and the vampires. This small featurette gives us a glimpse at some of the axe-play you can expect from the film, as well as plenty of never-before-seen footage from the upcoming film without really spoiling anything.

The New Dark Shadows Trailer

Posted by Michael Pinto on Mar 16, 2012 in Cinema

This film looks like a great deal of fun — they could have made it super serious, but my first impression is that by setting it in the early 70s and having fun that Tim Burton did the right thing.

Nothing is Sacred; Beetlejuice Reboot Could Happen

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Sep 7, 2011 in Cinema


Nobody should be surprised, but it looks as though Warner Brothers is currently considering a reboot Tim Burton’s comedy cult-classic, Beetlejuice —  it’s like they’re not even trying anymore. The studio recently signed a two-year deal with the KatzSmith production house and may be floating the film their way. Should that happen, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith would likely end up penning the script. I still can’t imagine why they would want to reboot the franchise instead of writing a sequel, or even a prequel — it’s not as if the original wasn’t any good. Besides, it just wouldn’t be the same without Michael Keaton. The man did an amazing job selling the character and delivering a truly memorable performance. We already took Batman from him, do we really need to take Beetlejuice too?

Grahame-Smith Ups the Stakes With Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Apr 13, 2010 in Cinema, Horror, Pulp Fiction

I must admit that I’m not exactly a historical fiction buff, but when I heard about Seth Grahame-Smith’s recently released novel, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, I must admit that the concept piqued my interest. Of course, it wasn’t until I stumbled across this amazing trailer for the novel that I found myself compelled to buy a copy. I’m still in the process of reading it, so I can’t comment too much on the content, aside from my assurance that it isn’t Twilight. Read more…

Tim Burton’s MoMA Nightmare

Posted by Joe Strike on Mar 18, 2010 in Animation, Cinema

Tim Burton at the MoMA

I haven’t been to NYC’s Museum of Modern Art since their admission price hit a serious $20. (Sure you can get info free Friday evenings courtesy of Target – if you don’t mind standing on line for two hours.) I take that back; I’ve been there once or twice since, but gratis, wearing my fedora with the ‘PRESS’ pass tucked in the brim. Read more…



Will Alice be Atrocious or Astounding?

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jan 26, 2010 in Cinema

I have to say that one of my bigger disappointments of seeing Avatar wasn’t just the lack of plot in Avatar itself, but the uninspiring trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland which made me heartbroken. Now there’s a chance that the trailer was rushed, and I hope that’s the case because I’m a Burton fanboy and would trust him to get the animation right. Although looking at the above featurette I’m still on the fence.

The first toys for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland film are starting to be announced: Shown above is a Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Doll for Johnny Depp fans — although at $200 you’ll have to be a hardcore fan. More to my own aesthetic and financial liking are the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter and Cheshire Cat Kubricks below which are $19 for the pair. Sadly these goodies won’t be out for Christmas, but you can pre-order them for April 2010. Read more…

Tim Burton to Direct Dark Shadows

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 5, 2008 in Horror

Dark Shadows Comic Book from November, 1969

As a fanboy I’m against Hollywood remakes for the most part, but if Tim Burton is going to turn the classic 60s horror soap opera Dark Shadows into a film then I’ll gladly approve of the notion: Read more…
