Film News

Beetlejuice 2 No Go?

So it turns out that comments attributed to Tim Burton regarding Beetlejuice 2 being greenlit and confirming Michael Keaton’s return have turned out to be false.

Although don’t be surprised when Beetlejuice 2 does actually get the go ahead.

Disclaimer: This is only the opinion of Popcorn Cinema, so no need for the internet to wild again confirming the sequel just days after it was denied!

Indiana Jones To Return

It has been announced that Indiana Jones will return in a new film slated for release in 2019. Both Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford are on board.
