Tim Burton 2

In 2015, Zach Neil and Brian Link opened a bar in New York based on the filmography of Will Ferrell. From day one, ‘Stay Classy New York‘ was a quirky place that, many may assume, would come to depend on its Tuesday free pizza parties and Sunday boozy brunches to keep a continuous crowd coming in after the novetly wore off. But the Friday night Anchorman parties and the Smelly Pirate Hooker cocktail have proved quite consistently popular. (more…)

The latest trailer for Johnny Depp‘s return to the land of wonder in Alice Through the Looking Glass took a Guardians of the Galaxy musical cue and set the whole thing to Pink‘s incredible take on Airplane‘s classically trippy song, Go Ask Alice. The new trailer first made its debut during a Facebook Live chat with director James Bobin and Johnny Depp. Check it out after the jump. (more…)

Time travel. Kids with superpowers. Gothic setting. Franchise potential. Based on a best-selling book. Is there a box that Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children doesn’t check? The movie based on the 2011 New York Times best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs – his first book by the way – will be released later this year as a big budget movie with an all-star cast, and now we’re getting our fist look at the film in a new trailer. We here at Nerd Bastards listed the film as one of the 10 Non-Comic, Non-Sequel, Original Films Worthy Of Your Time In 2016, so does this trailer live up to our expectations? (more…)

It’s been almost 30 years, but every now and then we still get some news about a Beetlejuice sequel still being in the mix. Like the titular bio-exorcist, no matter how many time you think you’re rid of this idea that they’re still going to crank Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian  or something, almost three decades after the fact, it still comes back up in rumor control. So here we are again, and no less than Tim Burton is fanning these flames with the promise that Beetlejuice might still happen, and that two key figures are still up for a comeback. (more…)

AliceThroughTheLookingGlass2

The star-studded sequel to Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through The Looking Glass has released its first full trailer and it is as visually beautiful as one would expect from a Tim Burton production. Director James Bobin certainly has maintained that Burton style of madness in set design.  Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter are back to reprise their roles with the addition of Sacha Baron Cohen as the movie’s more sinister character of Underland.

For fans that wonder how Tim Burton’s creepy yet whimsical aesthetic would go over in a superhero movie, they need go no further than watching 1989’s Batman and its subsequent Batman Returns. But how would it look if he put his own macabre spin on another DC bigwig: Superman? We almost got a chance to see. Superman Lives was in development in the late 1990’s, with Kevin Smith’s initial script and Burton set to direct, with a very interesting choice in leading men: Nicolas Cage. (more…)
