The Trailer for Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Confirms That This Is Really a Movie That Will Be Happening

They really did it, folks. They really did a haunted-child trailer-cliché version of “Day-O.” But they didn’t even commit fully to the bit, as this version could be so, so much more haunted.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice reunites director Tim Burton with a power trio of actors from his iconic 1988 film: Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, and Michael Keaton. But Ryder’s Lydia Deetz is all grown up now, with a kid of her own, and since history and movie series love to repeat themselves… you know what’s coming.

This first teaser, however, offers very little, besides telling us that Lydia has not changed her style much after all these years, and that the people who decide what should go in movie trailers really wanted to subject us to this song again. Keaton is a treat, as always, but is that enough?

Here’s the synopsis:

Beetlejuice is back! After an unexpected family tragedy, three generations of the Deetz family return home to Winter River. Still haunted by Beetlejuice, Lydia’s life is turned upside down when her rebellious teenage daughter, Astrid, discovers the mysterious model of the town in the attic and the portal to the Afterlife is accidentally opened. With trouble brewing in both realms, it’s only a matter of time until someone says Beetlejuice’s name three times and the mischievous demon returns to unleash his very own brand of mayhem.

Wednesday‘s Jenna Ortega plays Astrid, and Wednesday‘s Alfred Gough & Miles Millar wrote the Beetlejuice Beetlejuice screenplay (Seth Grahame-Smith joins them for story credit; the characters were originally created by Michael McDowell & Larry Wilson).

Rounding out the cast are The Leftovers’ Justin Theroux, The Matrix’s Monica Bellucci, strange genius Willem Dafoe, and Arthur Conti. The creative team is full of Burton vets, including costume designer Colleen Atwood (Sweeney Todd, Sleepy Hollow), creature effects and special makeup FX creative supervisor Neal Scanlan (Sweeney Todd), editor Jay Prychidny (Wednesday), and, of course, composer Danny Elfman (Batman)

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is in theaters September 6th. icon-paragraph-end
