Happy 25th Anniversary to Tim Burton & Danny Elfman!

I have never done any advertising at all on the Lantern and do not use the site to promote merchandise, but I was recently contacted by someone in the marketing department at Warner Brother’s Records who asked if I would post the video seen below. The video is celebrating the release of a new 25th anniversary music box set commemorating the 25-year partnership between visionary director Tim Burton and the prolific music composer Danny Elfman. The 16-disc set features over 18 hours of music, including 7 hours of music never heard before, some Burton illustrations, a 250-page hardcover book and a lot more. I am posting simply because I think this would be of tremendous interest to any fan of their remarkable work together — from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure to Batman to Alice in Wonderland — and just in time for the holidays too! Now I’m the one who sounds like I’m working for Warner Brothers. Regardless, it does look pretty impressive, and any fan of film must certainly respect and admire the collaboration of these two artists. Take a peek!
