A first look preview trailer has been released for Beetlejuice: The Musical. That’s right, Beetlejuice has made his way to Broadway. It sounds crazy, absolutely. Downright absurd. But hey, is it as crazy as Beetlej…err, him going to Hawaii?

The movies of Tim Burton are always a fun source for CineFix’s “Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know“ YouTube series, as we saw in their Nightmare Before Christmas and Batman videos.
Next up from Burton’s filmography is nine fun facts about the great Beetlejuice you might not have known about. These include what the long whispered sequel was once going to be about, who was on the shortlist to play the title character before Michael Keaton was chosen, and more. Also included are appearances from both of the above mentioned movies as well.

Michael Keaton made it big in the 1980s with lead roles in films like Beetlejuice and Batman, but the next two decades saw his career take a downward slump. But thanks to his lead turn in 2014 in the Academy Award-winning best picture Birdman, the 63-year-old actor has been riding high on the comeback wave.
Last night saw Keaton return as host of Saturday Night Live for the first time since 1992. You would think the actor’s major comeback would be the subject of his opening monologue, but instead it was hijacked by SNL cast members Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan, who desperately wanted him to play Batman and Beetlejuice with them.
Check out Keaton’s full monologue here below, along with some other skits from the episode.
