It'd be hard counting how many times someone's said "Beetlejuice" since Tim Burton's film of the same name came out in 1988, but you'd think it would be enough times to warrant a reappearance, wouldn't you?

Helena Bonham Carter Wasn't Interested in Jewels Until Playing Elizabeth Taylor

Originally posted 10/16/2013 11:00AM

Playing Elizabeth Taylor had its sparkling perks for Helena Bonham Carter, who stars as the diamond-loving film icon in Burton and Taylor.

And they came from real-life partner Tim Burton.

"I had my birthday during [filming] so I cost him a lot of money," Bonham Carter said at a recent roundtable event with reporters. "It's funny how things educate you. I'm not really that interested in jewels. But I got a few jewels off ... [my] Elizabeth Taylor phase."

Frankenweenie's Inspiration? Tim Burton's Childhood Dog

Frankenweenie's Inspiration? Tim Burton's Childhood Dog

Originally posted 10/04/2012 05:00PM

Director Tim Burton's cannon of films has always featured elements of the supernatural or spooky, but the inspiration behind his new film Frankenweenie was, believe it or not, grounded in the real.

"I had this strong connection with a mutt we had named Pepe, and it was a good connection. Like your first love," he tells Reuters of the relationship that inspired the story about a boy named Victor who brings his beloved pet Sparky back to life.

"The dog was not meant to live very long because of a disease he had, but he ended up living quite a long time," Burton continues. "So you have this strong connection, and then you think: 'Well, how long is this going to last?' You don't really understand those concepts of death at the time."

A face only a mother could love?

Looking like the love child of Willy Wonka and Sweeney Todd's Mrs. Lovett, as styled by Edward Scissorhands, Johnny Depp slinks into his latest role, as 200-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins, shown here on the U.K. set of the film adaptation of the Gothic 1966-71 afternoon TV soap, Dark Shadows.

"There’s something about this vampire coming back after 200 years into this modern world, with a touch of the poetic, with maybe a tendency to maybe wax a little poetic now and again," Depp, 48, told MTV News earlier this year. "I have a good feeling about it. But Jonathan Frid’s Barnabas was so special."

Tim Burton to Make Cannes His Wonderland

Originally posted 01/26/2010 08:30AM

How do you prepare to preside over the jury at the world's most famous film festival?

According to Edward Scissorhands director Tim Burton, "after spending my early life watching triple features and 48-hour horror movie marathons, I'm finally ready for this."

Tuesday's announcement that Burton, 51, will serve as president of the May 12-23 63rd Cannes Film Festival comes as his much-awaited Alice In Wonderland – starring pal Johnny Depp, among others – is being prepped to land in theaters March 5. At the moment, a retrospective of his work is also on display to S.R.O. crowds at New York's Museum of Modern Art.

"When you think of Cannes, you think of world cinema. And, as films have always been like dreams to me, this is a dream come true," Burton, whose films often deal in dreams (and nightmares) said in a statement.
