Ed Wood

From Hollywood's acclaimed director Tim Burton comes the offbeat, true-life story of Hollywood's worst director, Ed Wood. Superstar Johnny Depp portrays the eccentric filmmaker who refuses to let botched scenes and horrible reviews dash his hopes of making it in showbiz. Along with a bizarre band of misfit actors - a TV horror queen, a Swedish wrestling hulk and down-and-out screen legend Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau in an Oscar-winning performance) - Ed takes the art of bad moviemaking to an all-time low. Engrossing and often hilarious, Ed Wood delivers non-stop entertainment scene by scene.
