Shake shake shaken, not stirred.

Sequel Is an Art Show About Those Follow-Up Films We’ll Never See

No sign of Super Mario Bros. 2.

My friends, we are never going to see Natalie Portman as a grown hitwoman taking bloody vengeance on the mafia that failed to protect her mentor and guardian the moment he talked about getting out of the game. We're never going to find out what might have happened if the Goblin King returned decades later. And yes, we're probably never going to see a Hellboy III.

Lego Minifigs of the 80s You Dreamed Of

Our Adorable Past

Travel back in time with us again, but this time to a version of the 80s that never actually existed. Lego's pretty into the licensed tie-in these days, but kids of the 80s had no such luck. Designer/artist Dan Shearn seeks to rectify this, if only in the form of .jpgs images.

Calm Down, Everyone. Tim Burton’s Not Confirmed to Direct the Beetlejuice Sequel

Okay You Primitive Screwheads

I've seen a few sites report that it's "confirmed" that Tim Burton and Michael Keaton are returning for the long-gestating sequel to Burton's best movie, Beetlejuice. (Yeah, I said it. Come at me.) That's not exactly the case, but it is looking (somewhat) possible. So what's really going on?

Michael Keaton Talks Batman, Beetlejuice, and the New Robocop on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

WTF with Marc Maron is one of the most popular, and best, podcasts on the Internet. It's on the radar of most comedy geeks, but Maron interviews people from a few different worlds, including the world of Hollywood. The latest episode features an interview with Michael Keaton, who many forget started as a comic, and the two talked about Batman, Beetlejuice, and Keaton's role in the upcoming Robocop reboot.

Art Nouveau Prints For All the Non-Disney Princesses

Pretty Pretty Princess

Okay, Lydia Deetz and most of the other female characters featured in Kishokahime's DeviantArt gallery aren't princesses, but you know what I mean. They're the leading ladies of a bunch of animated and genre films from an era that corresponds to a lot of childhoods these days. And they may not get as much play in the media as Cinderella, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten about them. So here's to the strange and unusual movies where unicorns are a far more likely occurrence and  Tim Curry is almost always the villain.

Ïve Bastrash’s Beautiful Alternate Movie Posters

Canadian artist Ïve Bastrash's alternate movie posters are kind of creepy. In that I'm not sure how he got a look at my DVD collection, because that's, like, in my apartment. I'm just saying, if he'd wanted to borrow a movie or two, he could have just asked.

Things We Saw Today: The First Official Photo From Iron Man 3 is a Bunch of Tech Porn

Things We Saw Today

I wanted to say "suit porn," but I thought that might be interpreted badly. So, that's the suit he made in a cave with a box of scraps, the unpainted prototype, the painted prototype, Iron Man 2's main suit, the briefcase suit, the suit he wears at the beginning of the Avengers, and the one he wears at the end. I think.

Tim Burton Returning to Stop-Motion Animation Again — This Time With Seth Grahame-Smith

Peanut Butter and Chocolate

After working on Dark Shadows together, Tim Burton and Seth Grahame-Smith will reunite for the former's return to the ooky-spooky land of stop-motion animation. It's yet another project the new dynamic duo will be working on in addition to a possible Beetlejuice sequel. We like this friendship! It's not just peanut butter and chocolate -- it's peanut butter, chocolate, and cinnamon.

Omigod, Community Had a Beetlejuice Easter Egg That Was Three Seasons In the Making [Video]

And Fansplosions Abound

I don't even know where to start with this. Dan Harmon's Community, which recently transformed Twitter in a seething cauldron of angst because it was inexplicably removed from NBC's mid-season lineup (while Whitney, like a cockroach, somehow remained), has a special relationship with its audience. That relationship entails going against what network sitcoms are supposed to do and consistently raising the bar. The first time the writers treated us to a secret surprise was when Abed (Danny Pudi) was part of a stealth storyline in which he delivered a baby without so much as a mention in that episode. (The mention came a few episodes later.) And now, over the course of its three seasons, three Beetlejuice mentions that actually resulted in an appearance by the B-Man himself that you probably missed. Watch the window behind Annie (Alison Brie) after she makes the third mention after a quick mention of Inspector Spacetime. What are we thankful for? Things like this. Thank you, Dan Harmon and everyone involved with Community! (via Topless Robot) Previously in Community
