Johnny Depp stars as Willy Wonka, a role previously portrayed by Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). Helena Bonham Carter as Charlie’s mother Mrs. Bucket. Tim Burton wanted a musical fantasy take on the classic tale and, as one would expect, was heavily influenced by his unique style.

This animated film was, again, a musical dark fantasy based on an original story by Burton and Carlos Grangel.

Set in the Victorian era, Corpse Bride stars Depp as Victor, a hapless groom-to-be. While rehearsing his vows, he unwittingly marries the corpse of a woman named Emily, voiced by Carter. Mayhem ensues as Victor now finds himself straddling the life of the living and the dead.

Both this movie and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory being created at the same time. So, he and other cast that were in the film worked on the Chocolate Factory during the day and did the voice work for this film at night.

One of Tim Burton’s classic, Sweeney Todd is a live action musical starring his favorite duo. Depp plays Sweeney Todd, a barber and serial killer. Carter plays his sidekick, Mrs. Lovett who loves baking the worst meat pies.

This movie was based off a musical by the same name.

Drawing inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s original works, Burton created a dark and quirky version of this classic tale. In this version, Alice returns to Underland and must defeat the Jabberwocky in order to save everyone.

This is the first movie the duo starred in together without Tim Burton. It was directed by Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski. The movie is based on the fictional masked ranger who goes by The Lone Ranger.

Depp plays The Lone Ranger’s friend Tonto, while Carter plays a brothel madam and friend to the starring duo, Red Harrington.

The follow-up to Alice in Wonderland, this movie sees Alice going back to Underland in order to save her friend The Mad Hatter (played by Johnny Depp). Once again, Helena Bonham plays the Evil Red Queen, played opposite by the White Queen (Anne Hathaway).

The big difference is Burton did not direct, James Bobin did.


Chicago prosecutor drops sex abuse charges against R. Kelly

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” against Kelly, who has been convicted in federal court.

An Illinois prosecutor dropped 10 charges of sex abuse against the singer R. Kelly on Monday, saying the cost was one of the factors she weighed in her decision.

Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is already serving a 30-year prison sentence on charges of federal racketeering and sex trafficking after he was convicted in New York last year.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” with the two convictions. She said her office’s “limited resources and court time” were the ultimate factors, noting that it found the accusations to be credible.

“Mr. Kelly is looking at the possibility of never walking out of prison again,” Foxx said.

Kelly is set to appear Tuesday in Cook County Court, where the charges will be formally dropped. The state has accused Kelly of sexually abusing four people, three of whom were minors.

Foxx announced the state’s case in 2019, saying the incidents occurred from May 1998 to January 2010. Kelly had faced three to seven years in prison for each charge if he were convicted.

The women in the case were identified in the indictment only by their initials. Multiple women have come forward with allegations over the years.

Lifetime aired a six-part docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” in January 2019 in which multiple women alleged Kelly subjected them to mental, physical and sexual abuse. Foxx urged potential victims to come forward to speak with her office about possible criminal activity after the series.

Foxx said Monday that she consulted with the women in the indictment before she decided to drop the charges, acknowledging that some might be disappointed.

“I know firsthand how difficult it is for you to tell your stories,” Foxx said. “Four years ago, I stood at this podium and shared my story of having been a survivor and my full understanding of what it means to have to go before strangers to discuss what is arguably one of the most horrific experiences one could have. And these women, all of them Black, came forward, believing that they would be heard.”

Kelly also faces state charges in Minnesota, where he has been accused of soliciting a minor for sexual purposes and engaging in prostitution with a minor.

In the New York case, Kelly was convicted on nine counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. Jurors found that he set up a criminal enterprise that enabled him to recruit and transport underage girls for sex.

Months later in Chicago federal court, he was convicted on six counts of sexual exploitationand enticement of a minor. He is scheduled to be sentenced on those charges Feb. 23.

Kelly’s attorneys have said he plans to appeal both federal convictions.

50 GB Of Unreleased Michael Jackson Songs Stolen And Leaked




Renowned music engineer Brad Sundberg’s laptop was stolen this week during a break at one of his “In The Studio With MJ” events in Brussels, leading to the leaks of several unreleased songs by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Sundberg’s laptop contained a significant amount of unreleased material by the iconic singer, predominately from the late 1980s and early 1990s. He would play them for fans who attended the events over the years.

The stolen songs, which were recorded during Michael’s “Bad” and “Dangerous” eras, have now surfaced on various online platforms, causing a frenzy among the fans. This is not the first time that unreleased material by Michael has been leaked, but under the circumstance of the theft, it’s certainly the most shocking and disappointing.

Fans have urged others to refrain from sharing or downloading the leaked songs, as they were not intended for public release and may contain unfinished versions of the tracks, as well as damage any plans for potential future releases.

We at MJWN are deeply saddened by the events. We hope those involved will be brought to justice. We will not be posting any links to the stolen material, nor naming the songs that have been leaked.

Michael’s Estate has yet to release a statement on the matter.
