Burbank, Calif, May 26, 2008 – Beetlejuice, the colorful, wildly imaginative family adventure from creative genius Tim Burton, starring Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Winona Ryder returns from the afterlife on DVD September 16 in a newly remastered 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition on DVD and Blu-ray™ Hi-Def.

Beetlejuice was brought to life from the imaginative mind of Tim Burton who went on to produce and direct some of the most visually stunning films of our time such as Batman, Edward Scissorhands, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish and most recently Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Beetlejuice also received an Academy Award® for Best Makeup with renowned makeup artist and three-time Oscar-winner Ve Neill, and went on to be ranked on AFI’s Top 100 list of Funniest American Movies.
Beetlejuice 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition which streets in time for back-to-school shopping and Halloween, will sell for $19.96 SRP and the Blu-ray™ Hi-Def will be released for $34.99 SRP.
“The film is a perfect vehicle for Burton’s visual style and twisted imagination, with clever ideas and gags packed into every scene. Beetlejuice is also a showcase for Keaton, who tackles the title role with maniacal relish and a dark edge of menace.” Amazon.com.
Synopsis: What’s a couple of stay-at-home ghosts to do when their beloved home is taken over by trendy yuppies? They call on Beetlejuice, the afterlife’s freelance bio-exorcist to scare off the family – and everyone gets more than she, he or it bargains for! Tim Burton guides this PG-rated comedy monsterpiece whose stars include Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder. And Michael Keaton is Beetlejuice, the ghost with the most who flings one-liners, spins into grotesque forms, gobbles insects, and who just can’t leave the ladies (living or dead) alone. Ghoul love it!
