With the movie less than two months away we’ve finally been given the first trailer for Tim Burton’s latest, Dark Shadows. In my opinion the movie looks funny at the very least, so color me interested.
Watch the trailer below:
Based on the 60’s cult TV series with the same name, Dark Shadows is a gothic horror tale centered around vampire Barnabas Collins, played by Johnny Deep.
In 19th century, Barnabas is a rich playboy in Collinsport, Maine, master of the Collinwood Manor. When he breaks the heart Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), a witch, she turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. The year is 1972, two centuries have past when Barnabas is accidentally freed from his coffin and returned to basically a new world. Here he finds the Collinwood Manor in ruin and the remnants of his family, a dysfunctional bunch, residing there.
Directed by Tim Burton, Dark Shadows stars Johnny Deep, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jackie Earl Haley and obviously Helena Bonham Carter, can’t have a Burton film without her now can we.
Dark Shadows opens May 11th in theaters and IMAX.
