Video of the Day: What If Tim Burton Directed Weekend at Bernie’s


We can’t wait for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland to finally open next weekend. Our friends at Bablegum thought of another film that could benefit from Burton’s re-imagining: Weekend at Bernie’s. Their trailer spoofs many Burton conventions, including his proclivity to work the same people (namely Johnny Depp, his wife Helena Bonham-Carter, and composer Danny Elfman); his obsession with the color purple; and his tendency to make Johnny Depp’s characters over-the-top bizarre. We think it’s a pretty accurate rendition of what he might do with the ’80s classic.
