Beetlejuice

The second-most annoying bit of Tim Burton-related news in recent memory was definitely those false rumors about Beetlejuice 2 that sparked much social media outrage when a fake movie poster for the sequel appeared in March. But anyone who’s followed Burton’s career in recent years (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dark Shadows, Alice in Wonderland) should’ve known the supposed movie poster — featuring Michael Keaton Photoshopped into reprising his role as the beloved “bio-exorcist” — was a fake because the director would never ruin the memory of a beloved classic without Johnny Depp in the starring role. Perfectly cast (Winona Ryder, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin, et al.), art-directed (Catherine O’Hara was so impressed with production designer Bo Welch she wound up marrying him) and executed (Keaton was allowed to improvise enough to turn a dark horror film into a rambunctious comedy), 1988’s Beetlejuice is probably what people most want to remember Burton for. Considering the amount of interest the false rumor of a sequel to a nearly 30-year-old movie got in comparison to, say award-winning biopic Big Eyes, fans better be careful about saying ol’ BJ's name in vain, lest this oft-abandoned, Snopes-debunked sequel rise from the grave yet again.
