Synopsis - In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet—or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles.


“Dark Shadows” will star: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Moretz and Jackie Earle Haley and is slated for a May 2012 release.

Lame. After that awful CG animated film Alice in Wonderland from last year, I have no idea what to expect from Burton.

I am slowly applying my palm to my face right now.

What did you expect? Something new and original from Burton? He looks just like every other character Burton produces. I bet the set will be claustrophobic and stage like much as Batman 89 was.
RABB1T - 9/13/2011, 2:57 PM
Looks exactly the same as every character Depp has played in a Tim Burton movie... I hate Tim Burton...

Burton is the new Shyamalan. Nothing good can come from that director anymore.
Fogs - 9/13/2011, 3:09 PM
@trudey - I'd be terrified if Burton ever laid a hand on superman for ex... oh, that actually happened and it was terrible!

Batman was like... in a past life or something. When he didn't had the NEED to show the world how creep he is. Actually tho I like batman returns you can see his hand was getting heavy in that one.

His face is way too white. The makeup job on the cheek bones does somewhat resemble the original Barnabus however...I'm eager to see this though. I use to watch the reruns for this show all the time on The Sci-hi Network when I was a kid and my girlfriend and I recetly bought the DVD sets so the synopsis for this flick has me pretty stoked.

who cares?
ManOfKrypton - 9/13/2011, 3:15 PM
This looks awful! I swear Burton is loosing it... His last decent film was Big Fish back in 2003, he hasn't made anything decent since.
CapFan79 - 9/13/2011, 3:17 PM
That's Adam Lambert, not Depp.
