The ‘Tim Burton’s Dumbo’ trailer. …No, really.

To more or less quote Polygon: Tim Burton?  Wait, what?

Tim Burton’s Dumbo.

Did that get your attention? – Because it certainly got mine. As did the possible cast: Will Smith as… no, not the elephant; as the Good Dad; and Tom Hanks as the villain.  Which I must admit: I have no idea who that would be, because we didn’t watch Disney movies growing up and I’ve been hit or miss with filling in the gaps.  All I really know about Dumbo is that the elephant can eventually fly and that there are crows in it, including one with a supremely unfortunate name. I’m going to enjoy watching Disney finesse that one away, let me tell you.

Looking for some good spooky movies for my kids.

This is maybe the first year that both kids are really grooving on the subject of Halloween: the eldest wanted to make sure that he was in on decorating the lawn and the youngest actually expressed an opinion on his costume. So, of course, it’s time to get them properly indoctrinated and so forth. They are both below the age of ten, I’m looking more for spooky than scary, and of course I’m going to show them The Nightmare Before Christmas as soon as my wife and I decide that they can handle it.  The very question! What’s the point of Halloween if I can’t show them Tim Burton’s best movie ever? (more…)

…And *another* trailer: “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.”

I. Am. So. THERE.

Tim Burton, of course. OF COURSE.  And, yes, I’m aware that this is what X-Men would look like if Tim Burton did it. Tell me that you wouldn’t watch a Tim Burton X-Men movie.  Tell me.

“Frankenweenie” trailer.

How in the name of God did I miss this?

 

Possibly because they’re not going From the guy who brought you The Nightmare Before Christmas and Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.  Which I suppose makes sense.  Still: this is gonna be so cool

OK, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has roped me in.

The exact point was 1:52 of the second trailer.

Yeah.  Yeah, Tim Burton knows me too freaking well, he does.

And before you say that it’s going to suck, consider this: Tim Burton produced.  This will not necessarily keep it from sucking, but at least you’ll know going in that it won’t be because the people making it just didn’t give a tinker’s dam.

Tim Burton’s “9.”

I saw this trailer while watching Coraline last night…


…and yeah. Tim Burton knows what we like; yes, he does.

Just what you were expecting, in other words.

More here and here. No website for the movie yet, or at least I can’t find it – but I did find this hat.

Which some of you will want. I’m sure of it.
