Since I saw the trailer a couple months ago, I have been anxiously awaiting the release of Tim Burton's latest film, an adaptation of the British soap series, Dark Shadows. This film features some of Burton's acting staples including his favorite leading man, Johnny Depp, and Burton's wife, Helena Bonham Carter.
The premise: 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
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. (Rotten Tomatoes)
Hopefully Will and I will have a chance to see this on the weekend and I will add my own review.
Check out the trailer below and get pumped!
