3 Reasons Robert Pattinson is an Inspired Choice to Play Batman

While nothing is finalized yet, all signs point to Robert Pattinson donning the cape and cowl to become the next Batman. Pattinson would play the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves‘s The Batman, a fresh start to the character not connected to Ben Affleck‘s most recent incarnation. This casting is excellent, and many seem to agree. But there’s already some backlash. This backlash appears to be coming from fans who only know Pattinson in regards to his role as sparkly vampire Edward Cullen in the Twil...

‘Beetlejuice’ Sequel Is Dead, Won’t Be Returning From the Grave

You can try saying his name three times in a row, but it looks like Beetlejuice isn’t coming back. There’s been talk of a potential Beetlejuice sequel ever since Tim Burton‘s supernatural comedy arrived in 1988, but according to Burton himself, any prospect of a return of Michael Keaton‘s ghost with the most is dead. While this will no doubt break the hearts of Hot Topic shoppers everywhere, it’s probably for the best. In 2015, Lydia Deetz herself, Winona Ryder, confirmed the prospect of a B...

In 1941, in the midst of World War II, the Walt Disney Studios put out a movie about a little elephant with big ears.

“Dumbo” nabbed the top spot at the domestic box office last weekend, but Disney’s latest re-imagining didn’t fly as high as expected.

Review: Tim Burton's Live-Action 'Dumbo' Movie Lives up to Its Name

Originally based on the storyline written by Helen Aberson and Harold Pearl, 1941's Dumbo was the fourth animated feature film made by Walt Disney Productions, following up Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Pinocchio (1940), and Fantasia (1940). Originally conceived as a short film, Dumbo was reworked as a low-budget feature to help recoup the financial losses of Pinocchio and Fantasia. Made for half the cost of Snow White, the 64-minute film turned a profit, earning $1.6 million during...

Who is the one true Batman? That answer and more as the Caped Crusader turns 80 at WonderCon

Jim Lee was 5 years old when his family moved to the United States in the ’60s. Though he didn’t read English, Lee understood what Batman was all about. “You could tell what was going on just from the pictures themselves,” says Lee, the co-publisher and chief creative officer for DC, which has been Batman’s home since his debut in 1939. Film producer Michael E. Uslan vividly remembers his own childhood encounter with Batman. He and his big brother had 50 cents, enough to buy five comic books in ...

‘Dumbo’ Review: Tim Burton’s Remake Fails to Take Flight

Some stories are best left as they are. This is a fairly unavoidable takeaway from Tim Burton’s unnecessary live-action/CG remake of the Disney animated classic Dumbo . Though not remotely as noxious and garish as his 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland , Burton has not solved the puzzle of figuring out a halfway decent creative reason for this film to exist. An A-list cast, high budget, and all the other trappings of a modern blockbuster can’t get this thing off the ground. Much of t...

Film Review: Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’

The key image in Walt Disney’s 1941 “Dumbo” is something out of a fairy-tale daydream: Dumbo, the baby elephant with long-lashed goo-goo eyes, a cuddly grin, and ears as long and floppy as wings, flapping those ears to soar around a circus big top, flying over the crowds with a freedom as touching as it […]

Review: A Baby Elephant Suffers—and So Do We—in Tim Burton’s Dumbo Remake

There’s a peculiarly 19th-century sensibility at work in Dumbo, both the 1941 Walt Disney animated version and Tim Burton’s new live-action retelling. It’s as if, once the workhouses were abolished, we needed to find new ways to build character in children: Why not just rake over their nascent emotions by introducing them to an adorable…
