'Dark Shadows' Trailer: First Look at Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's Vampire Film (Video)
The star and director team up once again for another quirky, gothic film.
Johnny Depp is back where he belongs: in ostentatious costuming, and in front of Tim Burton's camera.
After months of teasing photos of Depp in pale white makeup and 17th century accouter, the first trailer for Dark Shadows has hit the web. And as we can see the marriage of audio and rapidly moving images would seriously freak out Barnabas Collins.
Depp plays the risen vampire who becomes a blood sucker out of water after waking up in 1972 in a household filled by the likes of Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter and Chloe Moretz; as a remake of a daytime soap opera that ran from 1966-72, the fish out of water tale adds an extra level of winking to the camp to the silly, supernatural melodrama.
The film has long been a passion project for Depp, and it marks his eighth project with Burton, following Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland. The film hits theaters on May 11.
