We have a new poll for you to vote in! Our question: "Which 2012 Tim Burton Movies Did You See?" This question is multiple choice, just in case you want to add a Burton movie that, for example, you might catch in theaters or on DVD in the near future while this poll is still open.

Our options are:

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Dark Shadows


Feel free to tell us more in the comments section below! We look forward to the results.

Also, here are the results from our previous poll, which asked: "ARE YOU EXCITED FOR KAREN O'S SONG FOR FRANKENWEENIE?" 197 people voted total.

32 people (16%) said, "Yes! I am a fan of Karen O and I'm excited for this song."

26 people (13%) said, "Yes. It's nice to have some songs during the end credits instead of film score."

12 people (6%) said, "Yes. I've changed my mind since hearing the song."

4 people (2%) said, "No. I've changed my mind since hearing the song."

93 people (47%) said, "No. I prefer to hear Danny Elfman's music during the end credits."

Goldman in Talks to Pen Burton's "Pinocchio"

Screenwriter Jane Goldman (Stardust, Kick-Ass, The Woman in Black) is currently in negotiations to write the script for a new version of Pinocchio, based on the original Carlo Collodi story, says The Hollywood Reporter. Tim Burton is currently attached to direct the Warner Bros. film. Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) wrote the initial draft.

Warner Bros. is also planning on having Robert Downey, Jr. play the role of Geppetto, the toy maker who creates Pinocchio. In this version, Geppetto embarks on a quest to reunite with his marionette. Dan Jinks is supposed to produce the film (who also worked with Burton as a producer on Big Fish).
