Poll Results!

According to last week's poll, most of you thought HBC should have had the #1 spot on Empire's sexiest people list. Similarly, many also thought that HBC was awesome and didn't care if she was on the list or not. Sadly, and to our horror, one of you was of the opinion that HBC shouldn't have been on the list! (Ah, but to each his/her own.) Thanks for answering the poll, and keep looking for new ones!

Actor Bill Nighy (Davy Jones in POTC and will appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) talked to Sci-Fi Wire about things he heard about Pirates of the Caribbean 4;
"I understand that there was an announcement that there was going to be a fourth, and now I've been told since that that was not a reliable announcement,
"I'm pretty sure that there will be [a fourth], I would be amazed if there weren't, given the success of the first three."

Johnny Depp talks about Characters

Johnny Depp told Joy magazine:

"The person I represent must be somehow special. I was totally fascinated of John Dillinger in Public Enemies  for example. And Captain Jack Sparrow was revolutionary - a bank robber but at the same time national hero.

"My success came on its own. However, I was very lucky. For example, directors like Tim Burton fought for me when Paramount didn't want to give me the lead role in Sleepy Hollow.

"When I made the breakthrough I was regarded as the new James Dean. But the biggest compliment I ever received was the comparison with Marlon Brando. He is my idol - and was my best friend."

What ever happened to Tim Burton's Frankenweenie Remake?

It's been awhile since we've heard news about Tim Burton's remake of his short film, Frankenweenie, but Producer Allison Abbate (who is working on the new movie Fantastic Mr. Fox) assures us it's still in the works, but far off. Two years is the estimate, but when it does start filming it should be done around London, and it seems at this time that it'll be done in Black and White like the original (hooray!) and possibly in 3-D.

Pre-Order HBP!

Hey everyone! Exciting news! You can now pre-order Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on DVD, Blu-ray, and Amazon Video On Demand! For more info, check out!
Have a lovely Helena day!

Ozzy Osbourne Wants Johnny Depp to do a Biopic of his Life

Musician Ozzy Osbourne just released his autobiography, I am Ozzy, so what's next? He says:
"What's left to wish for? A number one album would be good. And to have a movie made of the book, maybe with Johnny Depp playing me - I'd like that."

That sure would be an interesting movie, wouldn't it?

Michael Sheen talks Alice

Michael Sheen talked to Parade about his role as the White Rabbit in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, he says:

"I’m doing the White Rabbit in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Everyone has an inner white fluffy animal, it’s just a question of finding it before it’s too late.”

“The White Rabbit is such an iconic character that I didn’t feel like I should break the mould too much, so I just sort of went with it.”

“The story had a huge impact on me as a child and it’s stayed with me ever since, so to be part of Tim Burton’s version is just like a dream come true.”

Sin City 3 Still in Talks

In an interview with Gerard Butler, Sin City 3 (which has Johnny Depp's name tied to it, if you'll recall) was brought up. The MTV interview says:
 "I could see myself working with Frank again," said Butler. "But, I don't know. Graphic novels are things that I wouldn't do a lot of, so I would have to really choose carefully before I did."

But one movie that the duo already discussed is a future "Sin City" installment. "At one point, he talked to me about one of the 'Sin City' [movies]," Butler explained. "And we discussed that."

He continued: "There's a kind of cool character I think in the third one, but it was all very kind of soft talk."

If Butler boards "Sin City 3" that would mean that he could star in the film opposite actors like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, who have previously confirmed their involvement in the third movie. If we could only skip the annoying second installment.
 There hasn't been much news lately about Johnny Depp's involvment in Sin City 3 (there hasn't been a Sin City 2 released yet, so that's no surprise) but if anything comes up we'll post it!

What Will You Be for Halloween?

Hey HBC fans! Our favorite holiday is coming up, so we want to know what you'll be! Answer the new poll, and have a wonderful week!


There has been a lack of Helena news lately, so I'm sorry you haven't been able to get you HBC (and friends) fix from HBCfanclub, but when there's more movie news it'll be here!

But hey, it's October! If there's a time of year that SCREAMS Tim Burton creatures, Helena Hair, Johnny Depp's brooding eyes and Danny Elfman tunes it's Halloween.  And it's time for you to start working on your Halloween costume! (NO ONE is too old for Halloween!) If you're at a loss of who to dress up as, why not dress up as your favorite Nightmare Before Christmas character? How about Bellatrix or another Potter character? And there's always Capt. Jack Sparrow! When Hallows eve comes around and you put on your Burton-esk attire and gel up your hair to look like Helena's, snap a picture of yourself and send it our way, and we'll put it on the site!

Until then, you should watch some Depp/HBC/Burton movies and please your ears with Danny Elfman orchastration =)
