Helena Bonham Carter Talks Tim Burton on 'Tonight'Helena Bonham Carter and partner Tim Burton live in separate houses but are still very much a couple, she attempted to explain to a bemused Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). "We do visit each other," she quipped.

He asked whether they slept in separate bedrooms in those respective homes. Well, they have two children together, so obviously not all the time. But "he snores and I ... talk in my sleep," Carter said. Leno asked if her sleep-talking made any sense. "Apparently ... I use long words. He has a dictionary by his bed," she joked.

'Alice in Wonderland's' Matt Lucas Caught With His Fly Down (VIDEO)

Matt Lucas Caught with His Fly down on 'Bonnie Hunt'Matt Lucas -- who starred as Tweedledee and Tweedledum in Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' -- was on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated), to discuss his first brush with fame. Apparently, as a young actor, Lucas got a chance to meet Madonna and have his picture taken with her.

This was an exciting moment for Lucas. "I thought, yeah ... finally I've arrived ... with all these cool beautiful people," he said. Unfortunately, Lucas had his fly unzipped in the photo taken with the Material Girl. We're sure that Madonna has seen worse things than an unzipped fly, but still -- with Lucas telling the tale, we got to savor his humiliation as he relived it all over again.

Tim Burton To Give 'The Addams Family' The Big Screen 3D Treatment

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 18th 2010 3:25PM
addams familyHere's more proof that Tim Burton has transitioned from creating original films to grafting his signature freaky style onto well-established franchises: Burton is directing a 3D stop-motion movie based on 'The Addams Family.'

We've seen countless iterations of Charles Addams' all together ooky clan since the classic 1960s TV series left the air. My favorites are Barry Sonnefeld's clever '90s Addams flicks starring Raul Julia and Anjelcia Huston as Gomez and Morticia (let's not talk about the straight-to-DVD sequels). There were also two animated shows, a second live-action TV series in the late '90s, and a Broadway musical starring Nathan Lane and 'Frasier's Bebe Neuwirth (previewed by our very own Brad Trechak).

Johnny Depp Reveals Secret for Getting Into Character (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 25th 2010 1:00PM
Johnny Depp dropped by 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS) and revealed that he gets into character by listening to custom mixes of music that evoke whoever he's playing.

"I get musical inspiration for the characters. Like, for example, there was a band -- actually, Terry Gilliam turned me onto this band called Sunset Rubdown. It was a great few songs on there that just defined the Hatter for me perfectly," Depp said, explaining how he got into character for Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland.'

One of the most highly anticipated 2010 movies (aside from 'Eclipse,' of course) is Tim Burton's live-action take on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.' Here's a look at the brand new full-length trailer.

The economy is slowing down for some, but apparently not for producer superstar Jerry Bruckheimer. Moviefone caught up with him to discuss guinea pigs, Nicolas Cage, and even a Rolling Stone.

Dark Shadows comes to the big screen

by Brett Love, posted Jun 2nd 2008 6:41PM
Dark ShadowsWe've kind of been conditioned to have lowered expectations when a TV show makes the jump to the big screen. It's usually an iffy proposition at best. For every Mission Impossible, The Fugitive, or The Untouchables there is a Bewitched, Wild Wild West, or Starsky & Hutch. With that in mind, I was a little hesitant when I got the email from a friend announcing that Dark Shadows was headed for the silver screen. That one could go wrong in so many ways. But then I clicked the link he sent along...

According to our friends over at Cinematical, the rights to the show now belong to Johnny Depp's Infinitum-Nihil production company. And now comes news that Tim Burton has signed on to direct the movie adaptation. It's a short, and quite logical, jump to finding Depp playing Barnabas Collins. It also doesn't hurt the argument that when asked about the possibility of doing this film during the Sweeney Todd press junket, Depp said, "If that comes to fruition, that's a dream come true, man. Barnabas Collins - when I was a kid I wanted to be Barnabas." Depp, Burton, and Dark Shadows have all the makings of a great movie.

Vampira dead at 86

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 12th 2008 8:13AM

Vampira (Maila Nurmi)A veteran horror star famous for playing the undead has passed on herself: Vampira (real name Maila Nurmi) died of natural causes yesterday. She was 86.

While Nurmi appeared in several movies, including The Beat Generation and The Big Operator, she is probably best known for the character of Vampira she created in the 1950s. She was the Elvira of her day, hosting a local show on KABC in Los Angeles where she introduced horror movies. She caught the eye of director Ed Wood, who cast her in the cult classic Plan 9 From Outer Space. She was played by Lisa Marie in the Tim Burton film Ed Wood in 1994.

I was just watching Plan 9 recently and on the DVD there's a great documentary that features an extensive interview with Nurmi and other stars from the movie.

Pee Wee's Playhouse: The Movie, staring ... Johnny Depp?

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 12th 2007 12:22PM
Pee-Wee's PlayhouseAccording to the Daily Stab, Johnny Depp is considering playing Pee-Wee Herman in a movie version of the former kid's show (and former HBO special) Pee-Wee's Playhouse. Depp has a history of taking on unusual roles and this would certainly be no exception.

The script would be by Paul Reubens, the original Pee-Wee. The two actors have known each other for a while, having worked together in the 2001 movie Blow. Also, both are casting favorites of director Tim Burton (Burton's professional directorial debut was the movie Pee-Wee's Big Adventure).
