Popverse's top stories of the day

It’s showtime… again. The first trailer for Beetlejuice Beetlejuice — the long-awaited follow-up to 1988’s Beetlejuice — has been released, showing the world just what the Ghost with the Most has been up for for the past 35 years.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice brings back three of the main cast of the original movie — Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, Winona Ryder as Lydia Deetz, and Catherine O’Hara as Delia Deetz, Lydia’s mother — and puts them alongside Monica Bellucci, Willem Dafoe, Jenna Ortega and a number of fellow familiar faces (Burn Gorman! Justin Theroux!) in a movie directed by the original’s Tim Burton, and written by Wednesday writers Miles Millar and Alfred Gough.

I know, I know: you don't care about that - you just want to see what everyone looks like in the first sneak peek of the movie. Fine! Watch the trailer below:

If you’re wondering just what to expect from the new movie, coming so long after the first, Michael Keaton had a surprising take recently, saying in an interview that the first movie ‘was so fun and exciting visually [and the sequel is] all that but really beautiful and interestingly emotional here and there,” adding, “I wasn’t ready for that.” And that’s someone who plays the main character in the movie, so imagine how the rest of us are going to respond!

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will be in theaters September 5. Just try not to think about a Beetlejuice movie that’s “really beautiful and interestingly emotional here and there” too much. Talk about scary!
