But only if you say his name three times first.
Beetlejuice may not be returning in the form of a sequel any time soon (even though we keep asking Winona Ryder about it), but the musical will be coming to Broadway for the 2018-2019 theater season. Warner Brothers will be producing and Alex Timbers will direct.Read More
Shake shake shaken, not stirred.
New York already has some geeky watering holes, like The Way Station or Lovecraft, but later this month nerds will have another option on the list of cool places to get their revels on: Beetle House, a Tim Burton-inspired bar complete with themed food and drinks and a decidedly spoopy atmosphere.Read More
Oh, pray to the cult movie gods that this be true! After years of rumors and speculation and hints, it seems that there's some actual movement in bringing a sequel to Beetlejuice to the big screen! Director Tim Burton may have confirmed that Beetlejuice 2 is in the works!Read More
Here are ... the deetz ...
It's been some time since director Tim Burton officially announced his plans for a Winona Ryder-starring Beetlejuice sequel, so it's nice to hear confirmation from Ryder that the film is still happening (and that TSA agents are all huge nerds).Read More
Look, all I'm gonna say is that I relate to this on a deep, deep level. Respect.Read More
One could even say he... gave us the Deetz.

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.Read More

WTF with Marc Maron is one of the most popular, and best, podcasts on the Internet.

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.Read More

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)Read More
