Warner Bros. released the full trailer for Tim Burton's Beetlejuice sequel, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice (oops!), last week, giving us a first glimpse of several new characters, including Willem Dafoe's brilliantly-named Wolf Jackson.

Now, Empire has shared a new image from the movie, providing us with a better look at the "afterlife cop," who is missing a portion of his skull.

When he was alive, Jackson was an actor who was known for playing a police officer by the just as fantastically-named Frank Hardballer, and took on a similar role after his death as head of the Afterlife Crimes Unit.

“The most important thing for me was to find the tone. It had to be rooted but it also had to be free enough that you could play with it. I take my cue off of [Michael Keaton],” says Dafoe. “You take your cue off of the world.”

Check out the new image below.

The trailer also unveiled Betelgeuse's ex-wife Delores (Monica Bellucci), and one quick shot reveals that she is missing a finger. This is almost certainly a call-back to a scene from the original movie, when Betelgeuse is attempting to force Lydia to marry him, taking a severed finger out of his pocket with the ring still on it.

 This may give us some insight into why Delores appears to have enlisted Jackson to help track Betelgeuse down.

Check out the recent trailer at the link below along with some character posters.

"After an unexpected family tragedy, three generations of the Deetz family return to the small Vermont town of Winter River. Paranormal empath, Lydia Deetz, begins to see the lecherous demon Beetlejuice, who haunted her as a teenager. His plans to finally marry Lydia are given extra urgency when his dead wife comes to life and begins to stalk the Afterlife hunting for him. Meanwhile, Lydia’s teenage daughter embarks on a romance with a local teen."

Wednesday creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar penned the script.

Beetlejuice 2 is set to release in theaters on Sept. 6, 2024.

Do these type of 20-30 year old sequeals really recapture the magic of the originals? IMO no.

@HammerLegFoot - Top Gun Maverick, Cobra Kai, Fury Road and Blade Runner 2049 are some good examples. Tons of bad ones out there too.

@mountainman - In all honesty I've never seen none of those movies or the originals. Except for Karate Kid

@HammerLegFoot - if they played completely against the books, meaning fearless storytelling, they may have a chance.

I'm guessing the biggest problem will be playing it too safe, in both budget and offense-less humor.

Beetlejuice, Kinds of Kindness and Nosferatu in one year. Dafoe is on fire.

Dafoe is a great actor, but he is one butt-ugly man.

@DocSpock - dafoe is one of the best actors there is. so many great performances over the years.

but i would say he's more like a bulldog - as in he's both ugly and cute at the same time.
and that's why we love him. being an ugly mutha[frick]a is part of his charm.
