Tim Burton shoots The Killers' new video

Music Video / Film

Craig Roberts (the lead in Richard Ayoade's debut film Submarine) and Winona Ryder star in the video for The Killers' track Here With Me, shot by Tim Burton...

Produced by Th2ng - which has worked with Burton on many of his film's title sequences - the video was shot in various locations in Blackpool and features Roberts playing a man obsessed with a female film star (Ryder). It was inspired by the song lyrics and, apparently, a 1935 American horror film called Mad Love.

This is the second time Burton has directed a music video for The Killers - he directed the promo for Bones in 2006.
