Tim Burton's Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice Celebrates Its 30th Birthday With Awesome New Posters

Tim Burton's Beetlejuice was released on March 30th, 1988, which means that it's now been 30 years since the ghost with the most first exploded onto cinema screens. It's an auspicious birthday, too, coinciding with Beetlejuice's (sort of) return to theaters (as a VR avatar in Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One).

Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice was released on March 30th, 1988, which means that it’s now been 30 years since the ghost with the most first exploded onto cinema screens. It’s an auspicious birthday, too, coinciding with Beetlejuice’s (sort of) return to theaters (as a VR avatar in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One).

If for some reason you haven’t seen the film, it’s a ghost story with the twist being that the heroes are a pair of ghosts trying to get rid of the obnoxious new tenants in their house. Their haunting skills aren’t great, though, so they call in an expert: haunter extraordinaire Beetlejuice!

Now that I’ve said his name three times, I guess it’d be as good time as any to introduce these seriously cool fan posters that’ve been cooked up to celebrate the movie’s birthday:

These gorgeous pieces of work come to us courtesy of the talented people at Poster Posse, who’ve said the following about them:

 “1988 had some great films but one of our all-time favorites was “Beetlejuice” by Tim Burton. The film paired Burton with musical genius Danny Elfman again for the second time and the end result is absolutely fantastic. These prints pay homage to the film that still puts a smile on our face some 30 years later.”

It’s a fine looking collection and makes me hope that the insanely long gestation of Beetlejuice 2 bears fruit one day. After all, Warner Bros. recently announced that the script was being re-written by RememoryRunaways and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride screenwriter Mike Vukadinovich and that they hoped to reunite Tim Burton and Michael Keaton for the film after the pair finish work on the live-action remake of Dumbo. 

More on that when have it, but in the meantime, why not rewatch the original? It still holds up all this time later.
