First Look at Original DARK SHADOWS Cast & Alice Cooper with Johnny Depp

Three new behind-the-scenes pictures featuring Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collins, and original cast members of the 60's soap opera, who are making cameos in Tim Burton's new movie.



Another day goes by without even a sniff of a trailer, but we've got some great behind-the-scenes pictures from the set of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. These are pretty exciting for long time fans as we get our first look at original cast members of the campy television series: David Selby, Lara Parker, Jonathan Frid, and Kathryn Leigh Scott. All four will be making cameos in the film alongside legendary rocker Alice Cooper, who can also seen below.







This May, Tim Burton and Johnny Depp team up to bring us their re-imagining of the classic series DARK SHADOWS. The story of Barnabas Collins and his Collinsport companions has enthralled audiences since it first aired in the late 60s. Now, FM is celebrating the return of DARK SHADOWS with THE most complete coverage you’ll find anywhere. With new and exclusive FM interviews from the original cast members Jonathan Frid, Lara Parker, David Selby, Katherine Leigh Scott, and more, plus a conversation with new DS director, Tim Burton, issue 261 is the place for all things DARK SHADOWS. To celebrate, one of FM’s favorite cover artists—Jason Edmiston (254 Vincent Price, 255 Voldemort)—brings us his vision of “The Barnabi”, Jonathan Frid and Johnny Depp as we bridge the divide between the SHADOWS of the past and the SHADOWS of the future.




Dark Shadows also stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Moretz and Jackie Earle Haley. The film will be in theaters May 11th, 2012.

Tim Burton movies have been so solid for the last 15 years, there's no way this will be suck.

Didn't Jonathan Frid hated Dark Shadows because it typecast-ed him for the rest of his acting career? I read he didn't want to be associated with it shortly after it ended many years ago. I guess he eventually came to terms and accepted it if he's cameoing in the movie.

I usually defend the non cbm stuff that gets covered here. But could someone explain this one to me because I'm at a loss as to why we should give a shit about dark shadow. I mean by show of hands who wants to see these articles gone.
acidbath - 3/4/2012, 12:08 AM
Nothing personal nailbiter unless your Tim Burton then yes its personal. He should weep on his fugly wife's shoulder for the abortions he's created lately.

Moon knight you should just go see cooper live. Actually everyone should.
acidbath - 3/4/2012, 12:12 AM

acidbath - 3/4/2012, 12:21 AM

HEY, TIM BURTON HATERS, EAT A DICK! IF NOT FOR HIM AND HIS VISION IN THE 1989 BATMAN FILM, THERE WOULDN'T BE ANY BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES, BATMAN BEGINS OR DARK KNIGHT, ETC.! THAT MAN OPENED THE DOOR FOR THE "DARK KNIGHT" INSTEAD OF JUST HAVING THE CAMPY "WORLDS GREATEST DETECTIVE"! AND I KNOW BEFORE NOLANS FILMS CAME OUT HIS BATMAN MOVIES WERE YOUR FAVORTIES, THAT IS B4 YOU FLIPPED ON A DIME AND STARTED HATIN ON IT. SO AGAIN, EAT A BAT-DICK!!!
UnscrupalousSmurf - 3/4/2012, 4:20 AM
@next....Hated Michael Keaton as Batman from day one, but i do agree that Tim Burton made todays CBM possible.
HellsHammer - 3/4/2012, 5:07 AM
As long as Alice Coopers in it I will check this out. Ozzy is an overrated piece of shit lol
JatevinM - 3/4/2012, 5:27 AM
Look I need a trailer for this movie because its killing me having not seen one.
BillyBatson1000 - 3/4/2012, 5:49 AM
Love Burton. Love Depp. But like everything associated with Hollywood - when they actually make a GREAT movie they then sequel-ize it to the point of oblivion.

I hope it's good - but I hope Depp "Jumps ship" if they drag on like "Pirates of the Caribbean" which outstayed its welcome LONG after the FIRST film.
HellsHammer - 3/4/2012, 5:50 AM
@ acidbath
yeah everyone should see Alice live. I have been seeing him every time he comes around since I was 12 I am now 21 so thats 9 straight years and because I live in New England sometimes I will go and see his shows multiple times throughout the New England area. Its truly an event not to be missed. But its always a nice surprise to see Coop on the screen

SCHOOOL'S OUT FOR EVA!!
theangrytroll - 3/4/2012, 6:20 AM
Alice Cooper is AWESOME!!! Anyone who gets the chance to go see him open for Iron Maiden this summer should DEFINITELY do so. Gonna be a hell of a show! (Unquestionably better than this crap. Although because of him, this is the first time I have clicked on any article about this movie.)
LucasMend - 3/4/2012, 6:20 AM
Alice Cooper? D: AWESOME
HellsHammer - 3/4/2012, 6:23 AM
shit gave me nightmares as a kid.
NotThatGuy - 3/4/2012, 7:04 AM
Yet another ridiculous Burton mess. At least he's consistent.
Gmoney84 - 3/4/2012, 7:13 AM
I'll go see this because I watched it growing up. Reruns of course but regardless I really enjoyed.
xfan320 - 3/4/2012, 7:37 AM
I love me some jonny lee miller! Hackers baby!

"I'll go see this because I watched it growing up. I'll go see this because I watched it growing up. Reruns of course but regardless I really enjoyed."

And that is exactly the reason I am NOT going to watch this. ;-)

@Nephillim

Ozzy was only good when he was with Sabbath.Cooper sucks?
Have you ever listened to Million Dollar Babies? Youre nuts..
HellsHammer - 3/4/2012, 10:13 AM
@Durango95
Its Billion Dollar Babies.
Also the entire Schools Out album, Love It To Death, Killer, Welcome to my Nightmare (1 and 2), Alice Cooper Goes to Hell, Hey Stoopid, Last Temptation and Brutal Planet were all albums that had each track as a piece of Rock Gold. Every album has a few songs that are great but I think those albums are the ones that you can just cruise through.

Hey @Nephilim, shut the [frick] up kid! Cooper is one of the greatest, you know not. Pay some respect and go back to your action figures. These kids nowadays... pfff

Old people look old, even when their old.
RolandD - 3/5/2012, 1:37 PM
@-ELgUaSoN-Interesting observation, but you have it backwards. The Crow and (Heath Ledger's) Joker look like Alice's love children, since he pre-dates them.

I always have respect for filmmakers who do re-makes and bring back the original cast in parts. Whether the movie is good or not, this shows class on Burton's part.

P.S. Even though I have great childhood memories of this show, my wife and I watched re-runs when the 90's show came out. It did not age well. It was a soap opera, for crying out loud.
