Tim Burton has revealed that he would like to work with The Cure.

The Sweeney Todd director told BBC 6Music that the band’s output has always been an inspiration to him.

Burton was speaking after he presented the group with the Godlike Geniuses prize at the Shockwaves NME Awards.

Burton said: “I could easily see really liking to do something, collaborate some time.

“I have been [a fan] for so many years and they’ve been so inspirational to me, so it’s a real honour to be here with them.”

Just by looking at a few movie stills, it not only looks freaky as hell but I’m completely stoked in watching the trailer when it comes out.

Splice is about Elsa and Clive, two young rebellious scientists, defy legal and ethical boundaries and forge ahead with a dangerous experiment: splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. Named Dren, the creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators – only to have that bond turn deadly.


If you live in the Bay Area and donate your body to science, chances are you’ll end up in a little-known but vital UCSF testing center located on the ground floor of a building at San Francisco General Hospital.

You’ll probably arrive in the form of limbs and other pieces and, once there, amid the din of techno music, a group of very young and very smart researchers will chop you into smaller parts and use them to test new orthopedic devices or determine whether existing products can be used in better ways.

In fact, Schwarzenegger is so pleased with how McG has used him in the movie – ILM has crafted a younger version of the Oak’s T-800 from James Cameron’s original – that he’s in talks to record more dialogue.

While much of the economy is teetering between bust and bailout, the movie industry has been startled by a box-office surge that has little precedent in the modern era. Suddenly it seems as if everyone is going to the movies, with ticket sales this year up 17.5 percent, to $1.7 billion, according to Media by Numbers, a box-office tracking company.

And it is not just because ticket prices are higher. Attendance has also jumped, by nearly 16 percent. If that pace continues through the year, it would amount to the biggest box-office surge in at least two decades.
