In The Lens



The long-awaited "Beetlejuice" sequel may not be too far off, according to director Tim Burton. While fans have been crossing their fingers for a "Beetlejuice 2" since the original debuted in 1988, earlier this year Michael Keaton confirmed that he and Burton had discussed the possibility but that his involvement was dependent upon Burton signing on.


Now it appears that Burton may be ready to commit 
to the project as long as Keaton is on board, stating that "there is only one Beetlejuice and that is 
Michael." Keaton is currently riding a wave of Oscar buzz for his performance in "Birdman" while Burton's latest film "Big Eyes" could earn nods for stars Christopher Waltz and Amy Adams.




 As for whether or not leading lady Winona 

Ryder would also return for the follow-up, Burton had a pretty definitive answer during 

a recent MTV interview. He said "Oh yeah, 

yeah, yeah." Plus four more "yeah's."


A mighty positive response, we think.






At the recent Governor's Awards, Liam Neeson rose to pay tribute to the legendary Maureen O'Hara and as if confessing a schoolboy crush, testified "She started in black and white and later became to queen of Technicolor, leaving us mesmerized, not just by her performance but by her fiery red hair and gorgeous green eyes."


For O'Hara's fellow redheads who are vying for Oscar's attention this year--Julianne Moore, Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Emma Stone--the moment could be read two ways. Either it was an encouraging omen that redheads are  deserving of Academy recognition too, or a cautionary reminder not to get their hopes up. After all, O'Hara had to wait until she was 94 to get Oscar's validation. During the course of her career, she never got a nomination.



True, a few redheads have beaten the odds to win best actress: Ginger Rogers in 1940's "Kitty Foyle" and Greer Garson in 1942's "Mrs. Miniver," Shirley MacLaine in 1988's "Terms of Endearment," and Susan Sarandon in 1995's "Dead Man Walking." This year, however, redheads are storming the gates, with Julianne Moore in "Still Alice," Jessica Chastain in "Intersteller," Amy Adams in "Big Eyes," and Emma Stone as Michael Keaton's daughter in "Birdman."


So, is it safe to predict the Oscars will feature a parade of redheads? Perhaps not, because whoever's nominated is always free to change the color of her hair.

Setting our sights on our home environment, what future vision can we look forward to in 2015? T.I.&W searches its crystal ball for the electronic home trends that could revolutionize the way we live. Fully connected, the electronically assisted home is the brave new world where--should you desire--you will be able to talk to your washing machine from say, your office or other location, and tell it to get to work remotely.


Thanks to the rise of internet-connected devices around the home, this sector will continue to boom and anything from plants to to air purifiers will be sending you messages and updates. Robots will be a big part of connected living. Case in point; Canary is a home sentry coming in 2015 that has all sorts of sensors on board to alert you via text if anything is amiss in the house. It includes a speaker system so you can remotely inform an intruder you are calling the police. Cleverly, it also learns to ignore your pets to avoid setting off an alarm prematurely. 

Another digital assistant reporting for duty is Jibo--a family-centric robot designed to be a companion. You can speak to it, ask it questions and with its two hi-res cameras that can track faces and take photos, host Skype calls as you move around the room. Also, as it can recognize faces, Jibo will deliver messages and reminders to specific family members--like a little digital Jeeves!

It's been more than fifty years since Marilyn Monroe's death, but there's no doubt the famed actress's signature beauty is still recognized around the world.  So much so that Max Factor has announced Monroe as the new global ambassador for its latest ads, celebrathing the makeup lable's 80th anniversary.

The late starlet was a longtime client of founder Max Factor's son, Max Factor Jr., in the 40s when she was known as Norma Jeane Mortenson. According to the beauty brand's post on its Facebook page, Max Factor credits the makeup brand with helping transform the innocent-looking young lady into the sex symbol she's known as today. "From Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe--Created By Max Factor" reads the new campaign's tagline.








"Marilyn made the sultry red lip, creamy skin and dramatically lined eyes the most famous beauty look of the Forties and it's a look that continues to dominate the beauty and fashion industries," says Pat McGrath, Max Factor's Global Creative Design Director. "It is the ultimate look that defines glamour--nothing else compares."  Given that Max factor seems to favor past beauty icons (the brand's former face, Gwyneth Paltrow channeled Audrey Hepburn  and Farrah Fawcett), it comes as no surprise that the company would choose the blonde bombshell as its new face.
