WATCH: Timothée Chalamet plays the son of Edward Scissorhands in Superbowl ad

February 7th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Well, along with the return of Wayne and Garth (here), if there was one thing we never thought we’d see at this year’s Superbowl, it was a sequel – of sorts – to Tim Burton’s timeless classic, Edward Scissorhands.

The clip (below) has Dune’s Timothée Chalamet paying Edgar Scissorhands, son of Johnny Depp’s Edward, and sees the return of Winona Ryder as Kim, the woman who fell in love with Edward and, while it’s a car ad and feels pretty much pointless, it’s nice to see her back.

Anyway, let me know what you think of the clip below.

Timothée Chalamet stars as Edgar, the son of Edward Scissorhands, and Winona Ryder reprises her role as Kim Boggs. Watch as the all-electric Cadillac LYRIQ helps Edgar take the wheel with a high-tech helping hand.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
