Who else but Tim Burton should direct a title with the phrase “peculiar children” in it? Variety reports that for his next book to film adaptation, Eva Green may play the titular character born from Ransom Rigg’s fantasy novel, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” Burton’s penchant for recasting actors is well-known, (No word yet on whether or not Helena Bonham Carter will join but…you know) and Green previously worked with him as a lovelorn villainess in his horror-comedy “Dark Shadows.”  The story follows a teenager named Jacob who, after suffering from aRead More
On the heels of the cancellation of her ABC sitcom “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23″, funny girl Krysta Ritter has joined the cast of Tim Burton’s painting biopic “Big Eyes”, according to Deadline.

Just brief glimpses of our favorite up and comers in this first teaser trailer for Tim Burton’s remake of 1960s vampire soap opera “Dark Shadows”, but it’s a fun one nonetheless. Johnny Depp – who else? – stars as Barnabas Collins, a man cursed by a jilted ex – Eva Green as Angelique, who happens to be a witch – into becoming a vampire, and then buried underground for centuries. When he’s dug out, it’s the 1970s and his beloved Collins family has deteriorated from the town leaders they onceRead More
Just yesterday we saw the American teaser trailer for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and like all good first trailers, it teased and tantalized without giving away too many secrets of Benjamin Walker’s axe-wielding, almost superhuman action hero of a 16th President. For international audiences though, Fox is going full out exposition, chocking it full of explanatory dialogue and closer looks at the bloodsucking monsters Walker’s Honest Abe will be fighting. One good thing about the new trailer is that we are given our first look at two key characters leftRead More
One of our favorite risings stars, Benjamin Walker had some bad news last week as it was announced that Alex Proyas’ ambitious 3D action epic “Paradise Lost” – in which Walker had been attached as one of the two main leads – had been halted for good. The good news for Walker is that epic action looks to be in his future still, as the first trailer for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” looks as fantastic as its previous promo materials and makes us even more excited for its summer release.Read More
We’ve already seen one set of unofficial photos from the set of Tim Burton’s highly anticipated vampire saga “Dark Shadows” which was, well, a bit out there. So, as if to appease the outcry of fans and bloggers, the first official photo from the film has been released via Entertainment Weekly and we can all breathe a sigh of relief, the whole cast looks not nearly as crazy as those first set photos would have us believe. Johnny Depp’s skintone in particular looks much more manageable. The whole cast appearsRead More

As Steven Spielberg preps his Abraham Lincoln biopic “Lincoln”, filming is already underway in Louisiana on a very different sort of film about the 16th President of the United States, and The New York Times has the first look. In “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, rising star Benjamin Walker plays a highly trained axe-wielding warrior whose mission in life is to rid the world of the undead, after one of the creatures attacked and killed his mother when he was a child.
