There's nothing quite like Spider-Man's own brand of energetic web-slingin' action, and this year's Spider-man: Homecoming definitely delivered in that regard. One of the stand-out action sequences from the Jon Watts flick came late in the game, when Spidey (Tom Holland) battles Vulture (Michael Keaton) on top of, and beneath, a stealth cargo plane. ImageworksVFX was one of the companies supplying visual effects to Spider-man: Homecoming, and a recent VFX reel... Read More »

Beetlejuice is an absolutely iconic movie from my childhood. The 1988 classic stars Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder, and has given me more nightmares than I can count, but it was, and still is, one of my favorite movies of all time. The dark comedy is rated PG (honestly, How?!) and features raunchy jokes, insanely creepy special effects, and just straight-up horrifying scenes. Someone hanging in a closet? Yep. Spirits taking over bodies and forcing them to dance to upbeat music? Of course. Saying someone's name three times to summon them? Yes, yes, yes. Keep reading to see the top 20 moments from Beetlejuice that I hated and loved at the same time. RelatedBeetlejuice: Where Are They Now? »

Being cast as Spider-Man is a once in a lifetime opportunity. But if you want to crunch some numbers on exactly how difficult it was for Tom Holland to land the part of Peter Parker, this exclusive featurette on the Spider-Man: Homecoming Blu-ray reveals 7,500 actors submitted audition tapes for the latest reboot of the character before the studios met with 200 of them.
"It was a pretty daunting process. I went through a phase of just doing self tapes after self tapes after self tapes," Holland recalls. Watch his own audition tape above, which even includes some early webslinging moves.
The clip also explains why Holland was ultimately "different than everyone else" and includes his first screen tests alongside Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., who remembers, "I got to meet Tom while he was in the final running there."

One of the most beloved superheroes in existence, there's a reason why Spidey keeps making it back to the big screen. Now available at the Cineplex Store, this time, Peter officially joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe (not including his scene-stealing appearance in Captain America: Civil War last year), and it's this union of Spider-Man with the rest of The Avengers (well, really just his mentor Iron Man) that sets Spider-Man: Homecoming apart from the past iterations of this character.

On the eve of Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s Blu-ray release, Collider has conjured up an exclusive featurette designed to take us closer to Peter Parker’s bleeding-edge suit.
Initially conceived by Tony Stark, Parker’s prized asset is almost outdated by the time Homecoming finishes, as Stark went ahead and built a new iteration for the young Web-Head. Peter Parker refused, of course, but we can still look forward to seeing that suit on the big screen in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War.
Closer to home, this insightful featurette recounts the overall design, and brings us interviews with Tom Holland and Jon Watts, both of whom are set to return for the film’s untitled sequel in two years’ time. Indeed, Spider-Man: Homecoming is already available on Digital HD, but tomorrow will see Marvel’s standalone pic scurry onto Blu-ray and DVD. And just like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 before it, »

Mr. Mom kind of helped to redefine the role of the man in the house, much at the expense of Michael Keaton of course but still in such a hilarious way that you can’t deny it was groundbreaking. At-home dads have been a growing trend in America for a while now and have been rising in popularity. It’s still not a worldwide phenomenon that could rightly be called one hundred percent normal but it’s far more accepted than it used to be. Mr. Mom may or may not be able to claim at least a little credit for this growing

Gangster movies never really go out of style since they tend to bring nearly everything a person could want out of a film, danger, drama, and of course a sense of justice that might be skewed to one side a little but is still there. Johnny Dangerously is a film that’s kind of a spoof on other gangster films but is still it’s own animal. It stands on its own two feet and delivers a healthy dose of drama laden with action that keeps the audience entertained for a while. Michael Keaton has been hailed as a great actor in

It’s been almost thirty years since Beetlejuice was released in cinemas and a sequel is still in the works until today. Warner Bros. has hired a new writer who will work on the rewrite of the script. Hopefully, that will finally be the right one that will lead for the sequel to officially happen. Deadline has reported that Mike Vukadinovich has been hired by Warner Bros. to rewrite the script of Beetlejuice 2. There’s no deal yet for Tim Burton and Michael Keaton to return on the sequel but they are both interested to be part of it. They are

The long-in-development Beetlejuice 2, the sequel to Tim Burton and Michael Keaton’s cult hit, has gained a screenwriter over at Warner Bros. Per Deadline, the studio has hired Mike Vukadinovich (Rememory) to pen the script with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg producing.
Burton and Keaton have not signed any deals for the sequel yet, but Deadline claims that the pair are excited at the prospect of re-teaming for the film. They are currently shooting the live action Dumbo for Disney together, with Keaton starring as V.A. Vandemere, the ruthless circus ringleader who want to exploit Dumbo.
The original film was released in 1988 and starred Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Genna Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara and Jeffery Jones. Baldwin and Davis were ghosts who hire Betelguise (pronounced Beetljuice) to scare away the occupants of their old home until Beetlejuice’s antics get out of hand. The film spawned an »

The one and only sequel ever directed by Tim Burton is Batman Returns. That's also the last movie he made with actor Michael Keaton before their upcoming reunion on Disney's live-action Dumbo remake (currently filming with fellow Batman Returns star Danny DeVito). Batman Returns is also the one and only sequel Keaton has done to one of his own movies (he was a new addition with both Herbie: Fully Loaded and Toy Story 3). Could the director and actor change all that with Beetlejuice 2? A sequel to Burton's 1988 paranormal comedy has been in development a while, but Burton hasn't committed to the idea yet. Nor has Keaton, who played the titular "ghost with the most" in the original Beetlejuice. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is now apparently trying...

There's still a Beetlejuice sequel in the offing - and it even has a new writer...
They just won't let Beetlejuice die. Warner Bros. has been trying to get Beetlejuice 2 off the ground almost since the original hit theaters, with the project going through any number of different iterations over the last nearly 30 years. Despite the fact that sequels this belated don't make the most sense under the very best of circumstances, let alone when one features characters who are dead and therefore shouldn't be aging anymore, there are still plans to get Beetlejuice 2 made with both Michael Keaton and Tim Burton.

Tom Hanks has never worked with Harvey Weinstein. But that isn't stopping him from speaking out on what is happening in Hollywood at the moment. After decades of sexual harassment and assault came to light against Harvey Weinstein this week, high profile women and men both have been speaking out against his atrocious behavior. Today, a new statement was released by Ryan Gosling, condemning the former Weinstein Company chairman's history of sexual assault, as Tom Hanks offered his thoughts on the matter, along with Emma Thompson giving a new interview. While two more actresses share their personal stories of harassment and abuse at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, Kate Beckinsale and Claire Forlani. First, here's what Tom Hanks had to say about Harvey Weinstein in a new interview, when asked why Hollywood sheltered his abusive behavior for so long.
"Well, that's a really good question and isn't it part and »
There's some new life for Beetlejuice 2. The project has been in development, in some form or another, for years and has never found its way to becoming a reality. Now, Warner Bros. is giving it another try, as they've hired screenwriter Mike Vukadinovich to pen a new version of the script for Beetlejuice 2. Depending on how that goes, we may see Tim Burton and Michael Keaton return for the sequel, but it sounds like we're a long way from that actually happening. But the movie is in active development.
The news comes courtesy of Deadline, who report that, while Warner Bros. is working on a new script for Beetlejuice 2, that doesn't mean the movie is actually going to happen. The report notes that Tim Burton, who directed the original movie, and Michael Keaton, who brought the titular character of Beetlejuice to life, have not yet officially inked a deal to return. »
I'm feeling a little, ooh, anxious if you know what I mean. It's been about six hundred years since we all heard rumors of there being a sequel to Tim Burton's classic 1988 horror comedy Beetlejuice starring Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin. Now, Deadline is reporting that Mike Vukadinovich (Rememory) will rewrite Beetlejuice 2 at... Read More »

It appears that Beetlejuice 2 isn’t dead just yet. There’s been talk of doing a sequel for years, going back to Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian which was put into development directly after the success of the 1988 Tim Burton original. But that talk heated up quite seriously a few years ago when Seth Grahame-Smith was working with Burton on Dark Shadows and pitched the filmmaker on writing a script for Beetlejuice 2. Grahame-Smith got the go-ahead, then Burton, Michael Keaton, and Winona Ryder entered talks to return. But the whole thing kind of went quiet after … »

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Vukadinovich has been drafted in to pen a new treatment for the long-in-development sequel. Neither Tim Burton nor Michael Keaton have signed on just yet, though Deadline is reporting that both director and star are interested in revisiting the genre oddity of ’88, possibly courting Winona Ryder back to the Netherworld in the process.
It’s worth pointing out that Burton and Keaton are currently working together on the live-action Dumbo that is poised to take flight at Disney, thereby joining a long list of reimagined fairytales that includes everything from Mulan to Jon Favreau’s star-studded rendition of The Lion King. For Beetlejuice 2, though, the project currently has Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions on board to produce, but beyond that, there’s not much to report at this early, »

Michael Keaton‘s performance as Beetlejuice was so iconic that it’s a shame we’ve never seen the “ghost with the most” back on the big screen. It’s nice that Tim Burton moved on to different things, but it’s the one franchise that has always begged for a follow-up, especially when you consider the rich, untapped mythology […] »

Exclusive: Mike Vukadinovich will rewrite Beetlejuice 2 at Warner Brothers, a project that has been long gestating as a re-pairing of Tim Burton and Michael Keaton. No deals are anywhere near done with Burton or Keaton but Deadline hears that the two — who are currently working on Dumbo at Disney — have been excited at the thought of collaborating on a sequel. Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions would produce this one. The original Beetlejuice… »
Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year when she debuts as Janet Van Dyne Aka the original Wasp in 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. However, as old school superhero film lovers will know, this isn’t the actress’ first time in a comic book movie. Pfeiffer previously starred as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in 1992’s Batman Returns.
Though the flick itself often divides people over its surreal, dark content, pretty much every Batman fans agrees that Pfeiffer is tremendous in it, arguably remaining the finest cinematic take on the character to this day. Could she ever play the role again, though? That remains to be seen, but Pfeiffer herself is up for the idea. While chatting with Variety, the actress said that “she would love to reprise her Catwoman character.”
On why her interpretation of Selina Kyle is so well regarded, Pfeiffer remained humble, citing director Tim Burton »
