New Poll

We want to know what you're anticipating in the upcoming Harry Potter movie, check out the poll on the sidebar!

Johnny Depp is Not Dropping Pirates

Lately there have been may articles claiming Johnny Depp may be replaced as Capt. Jack Sparrow (laughable) and that he wants to quit the 4th Pirate movie, but a Disney spokesperson has siad these stories are “completely unfounded,” so look for more news about the project here, the film will hit theaters Summer 2011.

Johnny Depp directing a music video?!

This is so amazing:

Johnny Depp makes his directorial debut filming a music video on Tuesday (September 22) at Hatfield House in Herts, England.

The 46-year-old actor directed the music vid for the British indie band Babybird, which is fronted by Stephen Jones. Also featured in the vid is British actor Stephen Graham (This is England, Snatch!).
While filming, Johnny was seen slipping a noose around Stephen Jones’ neck as well as taking a few cigarette breaks.

Check out some Babybird music on their MySpace.

Geoffrey Rush is excited for Pirates 4

Geoffry Rush (who plays Captain Barbosa in the Pirates films) is excited for Pirates 4, On Stranger Tides. He says, “They’re waiting for the screenplay writers to put together something that’s beyond the trilogy, take it off into a new direction so that it’s fresh and hopefully really interesting for an audience, that they’re not going to just sausage-machine out something else, which wouldn’t be so good.”

Too many internet reports have exaggerated Johnny Depp's lack of enthusiasm about the movie, due to the loss of Dick Cook, but I believe he will follow through with the movie (that's my thoughts, other sites seem to be stretching what Johnny said about being sad to not work with Cook, but he has also said that Capt. Jack is his favorite role, and he has the most fun on the pirates set, but what do you think will happen?). Though Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom are said to have turned down On Stranger Tides, which is mostly true. It's hard to tell what reports are official, most are kinda sketchy, but this is where the film stands now, return to HBCfanclub for the latest Pirate news! =D

HBC to be the Voice of Macmillan Cancer Support ad

Johnny May Drop out of Pirates 4??

 If you haven't heard, Mr. Dick Cook has left the disney family after working there for 38 years, which has made Johnny Depp consider dropping out of Pirates 4, he says: "He said, 'I'd like you to hear it from me before you hear it from someone else or read it. He said today was my last day. He didn't give me a reason."

Cook was the reason Johnny got involved in the Pirate movies in the first place, "He said, 'We're thinking about doing this 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie, I said I was in. This was before there was a script or anything."

About doing the 4th movie:
 "There's a fissure, a crack in my enthusiasm at the moment. It was all born in that office."

When his decission is revieled, you'll see it on HBCfanclub right away.

Tim Burton Inspired Photo Shoot

Tim has inspired, and did a cameo in, the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, check out these pictures from

Helena's next role? reports HBC is in negotiations to play Britain's Queen Mother in The King's Speech, directed by Tom Hooper. Pirates of the Caribbean star, Geoffrey Rush, and actor Colin Firth are also attached to the project. 
Firth says, "The film takes place before she took on the cuddly Queen Mum mantle, when she was much younger, making Helena ideal. This was when her husband - then the Duke of York - was going through the Abdication crisis and had to prepare himself for public speaking."
The movie should be filmed in London late this year and released late in 2010.
More information will be posted when it's released!

A Good 9 Review

I liked this review of 9 from

"Computer graphics have become a staple of modern cinema. Few movies are released without CGI, and many recent computer-animated films — such as “Wall-E” (2008) and “Up” (2009) — are favorites of our generation.
As a fan of this expanding medium, I find it disappointing that computer animation is never featured in action and horror movies. For this reason, it was a thrill to watch “9,” which finally introduces the computer-animation genre to a more mature audience.
“9” is an absolutely gorgeous film full of suspense, and the animation makes it possible for the creators to include sequences that would be impractical with live action."

Finish it at the link above.

Tim And Johnny in Anaheim!

So we knew that Tim Burton was going to the D23 Expo today, but I didn't know that Johnny Depp would show up! AND he was dressed at Capt. Jack! WHAT?! And Disney released the title of Pirates 4, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

LA Times Blog reports the excitement:
As 5,000 fans jumped to their feet, the star emerged in full character, with his bleary ballet of the forever besotted Jack Sparrow.
Cracking wise about rum he also said he'd like a little snack -- that nice frog named Kermit who had been on stage earlier and "probably tastes like chicken."

I wish I had been there... If you were lucky enough to be at the expo please comment with your experience! And if you're sad for missing out like I am, go ahead and voice your sorrows in a comment as well, maybe it will make you feel better...

9 Has OUTSTANDING Visual Quality!!

Dearest readers,

I just returned from the theaters this 9th of September in 2009, and I had my mind blown by the movie, 9! Other reviews have said that it lacked plot and had weak storytelling, but I think the story was told beautifully through the animation, music, and images. The movie didn't need a detailed script to tell it's tale. It is definitely one that you need to see on the big screen!

You had to love each of the rag dolls for it's own specific charm, and they were amazing fun to watch, and the detail of the scenery demands that you watch the movie again and again. So if you haven't seen it yet today, go catch a late showing because it's just not the same if you don't watch 9 on 9-9-09 =)

That's pretty much what I had to say, it was a great, very Tim Burton-y movie, and you should see it, discuss it, and love it!

Send us your reviews, and send in those last minute contest entries before 10pm to

The FINAL 9 Contest

We've been getting some AMAZING entries these last 8 days, and here's your last chance to be entered to win an official, limited edition 9 Movie Book, just answer this question:

What is Tim Burton's favorite stitchpunk character from 9?

Send your answer to and you can also send in entries from any previous contests until 10 Tonight, winners will be announced sometime on the 10th and the best entries will be posted!

Thanks for showing so much love to Helena and the site, send in those final entries, and be sure to go out and see 9 in theaters tomorrow!

9 Movie Reviews

If you're interested in reading some reviews of 9, follow these links:

Visual marvels, not enough story in '9'. Director expands his perfect short, but needs more.

In the world of '9,' less was more

Ebert: '9' worth seeing, but disappoints

Valley of the rag dolls: "9"

The Scientist Gives the World 9

From the 9 Scientist's Facebook Page:

I am alone, consumed by the ringing in my ears. It’s so quiet out there. My body is cold and fatigued, vision blurry.

I haven’t heard from anyone in days. Maybe they had to reroute after the strike? But as a pragmatist, I can only assume the more likely outcome and continue on my path.

I am sorry everyone. This world was a place of tarnished beauty, but a place worth fixing nonetheless. And all I ever wanted to do was give my part in fixing it.

We had so much potential… so much promise. But we squandered our gifts.

For whatever it’s worth, these are my new gifts to the world.

I am so empty and alone up here.

It is time.

Our world is ending, but life must go on.

Elijah Wood talks about being a Stitchpunk

Elijah Wood was interviewed by The Examiner, you can read the entire interview here.

Here's a highlight:

How would you describe your "9" character?

[The character named] 1 has kind of created a rule over the others in a means of protecting themselves against the machines, and 9 comes to this world without any knowledge of all [of] the others, the machines. So he’s completely innocent. So there’s this sort of courage and questioning of the innocence he has that he brings to the others, who have stopped questioning and stopped looking for answers and remained sequestered. So it’s a very searching character, a very open [character] — not at all hindered by the fears that the other characters have. So it’s a lot of fun to play — definitely more courageous.

Can you compare your experience to working on "9" to working on "The Lord of the Rings" series?

[He gives a weary laugh.] This is going to happen for the rest of my life. I think there are parallels. I think it’s an adventure story. They [9 and Frodo Baggins] are different characters, but there’s a similarity in … being given a sense of responsibility and a sense of maybe a quest. In this film ["9"], the character is really driving the others to search. [The characters of] 1 through 8, for the most part, have stopped looking for answers. They’re totally hindered by fear and these machines that exist, so the function of 9 is really to put pressure on those characters. He’s a little bit more forthcoming with his drive for answers.

Keep Up the Good Work!

Shane Acker says he's open to a sequel

Director Shane Acker hinted at a sequel to 9: “I think everyone's poised to see if the films works, if it finds an audience and makes some money. I think everyone is chomping at the bit to see if it does, and if it does, then maybe there will be an opportunity to make a sequel. I think it would be a great world to revisit.”
I haven't even seen the movie yet, but I think I'll be wanting more from Shane's post apocalyptic world. What do you think?

The Scientist is making much progress!

9 Movie Exclusives and Tim Burton Interviews has a two part 9 exclusive, part one was posted today and can be found here. There were some picture's included that I haven't seen yet (maybe you have, I don't know...):
Part two of this story comes out tomorrow.

A Tim Burton quote has been going around about his relationship with Johnny Depp:

"It's very nice to have someone that you can have a completely abstract conversation with and leave the room, feel like everything's fine, and then realize that if you pick it apart, you have absolutely no idea what either of you said." —Tim Burton [MTV]

And check out this Q&A with Tim over at,

What's your favorite animated film?
[Long pause] I'd have to pick something that had a lot of impact, which was "Jason and the Argonauts" [by] Ray Harryhausen. That really had an impact on me. The stop-motion animation and the kind of reality and scale of it at the time when I saw it was really amazing.

Would you ever want to remake that film? They're remaking "Clash of the Titans."
[Chuckles] I know. Nah, I think it was good.

How are things coming along with "Dark Shadows"?

I haven't really started that at all. I still have to finish "Alice." So that's a big job ahead of me. It's way too early. [Laughs] Probably in a year's time.

Any ideas that you've already been thinking up for it?

Well, just to try to capture the tone. It was a strange show, it has a strange vibe to it. And that's, I think, key to it.

"Alice" has been all over the place, with photos and trailers and you guys at Comic-Con.

Usually I don't talk about something before it's done. So it's been an odd situation because I [still] have so much work to do. I'm not scared of [all the special effects], per se, but I'm a bit daunted by the time and the unknown quality of it. But that makes it exciting as well.

What about "Frankenweenie"?

Still early. Like I said, the focus I have is "Alice." It's hard to think of anything else that requires a large amount of work.

But that's on the table.
Oh yeah, afterward, yeah. Exactly. Slowly get started.

I saw the latest "Harry Potter" last night, which stars your partner, Helena Bonham Carter. She makes a pretty mean baddie.
[Jokes] Yeah, she's a good witch. She had a lot of practice. She's good at that.

Does she ever come to you for tips on how to channel all that darkness?
No, she keeps it all personal. She keeps it all for her own uses, yeah. Witchcraft uses. [Laughs]

New York's Museum of Modern Art is doing an exhibit on you later this year. That was a little unexpected.

I feel like it's a weird dream—I'm not sure that it's real. But it's very exciting. That's probably more scary than a film, in a certain way. It feels a bit more exposing. I'm trying not to think too much about it. I'm trying to remove myself a bit from it—a bit of an out-of-body experience.

Your films have such a consistent, dark vision. Do you ever wake up wanting to do something crazy like a romantic comedy?
[Chuckles] No. Well, I thought "Sweeney Todd" was a romantic comedy in my mind. So, I think I've already done it. [Laughs] But not the way you're thinking, because that would be scary. But some of those are so scary, they're like horror movies anyway. They don't need my help.
Read it all at the link.

Alice in Wonderland Jewelry?

Tom Binns is designing a line of Alice inspired jewelry in time for Tim Burton's movie.
