New Cut of DARK SHADOWS Trailer Reveals Alice Cooper's Hilarious Cameo & More

Legendary rocker Alice Cooper is featured in this new version of the Dark Shadows trailer, and there are also snippets of additional footage involving Johnny Depp and Eva Green.

The trailer for Johnny Depp's new film Dark Shadows has divided a lot of fans of the original 60's soap opera. Anytime you remake a beloved television show, or film you're not going to please a segment of loyal fans, nothing will ever match the original. Screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has weighed in on the controversy.

"The reality of it is I want to please the fans, obviously. We all do. But if we made a movie that was strictly just for the hard core fans, I worry that it would exclude other people who might not want to then experience Dark Shadows from a complete fresh standpoint. So what we tried to have those elements in the movie that would really pay respect to the original series, to the origin stories, to the characters, their motives, to the idea of this as a real family story, and a gothic story, and something that would make Dan Curtis proud. And yet we wanted to open it up, because we wanted people to not be frightened of it. We want people to come and enjoy it as something completely new." -

Starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter, with Tim Burton directing, ________________ hits theaters ________________.

With that being said, and completely true, I must admit this looks like it may be kinda funky/cool, not unlike Edward Scissorhands but vastly different than that venereal drivel that was Alice In Wonderland.

I will be seeing it.

I think it looks like campy fun myself, a return to form for Burton after crap like Planet of the Apes, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in CGI Land. This is the kind of movies Burton should be making.

SuperArgo then I am going to put this as simply as I can...if you don't like it don't go see it.

As I said before who the hell would go see a slow moving soap opera on the big screen? How's that entertaining besides if they want a reboot they can reboot the franchise on cable tv.

Saw this last night watching OUAT. LOL, what a joke of a movie. 'Barry White, disco balls...awww c'mon man!

Only Burton fans will go see this-!, and with tongue-in-cheek.

You know...people like "superArgo"...If you are so against Tim Burton and you think all he does is crap..why are you wasting your time on this article specificaly just to bash it? Obviously everyone here knows its not like the original show...Youre not some DARK SHADOWS wizard and we know nothing? Quit complaining,wasting our time and yours! Tim Burton has cool visions on sets,filmaking and what not...Can you do any better?
