New DARK SHADOWS Character Posters

New DARK SHADOWS Character Posters

Check out nine brand new character posters for Tim Burton's upcoming reinvention of the cult '60s tv show, featuring Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins and the rest of his extended family..

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. Also residing in the manor is Elizabeth’s ne’er-do-well brother, Roger Collins, (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard (Chloe Moretz); and Roger’s precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gulliver McGrath). The mystery extends beyond the family, to caretaker Willie Loomis, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David’s new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.

The trailer for Dark Shadows was met with a mixed reaction because Burton seems to have gone too far down the comedy route for fans of the original series. But word is that this is not a fair representation of the movie. A few people who have caught advanced screenings say that although there are definitely comedic elements, the tone is much darker than the first trailer suggests. Guess we will all find out when the movie opens May 11th.

"I don't know much about the original series or what the tone might have been, but this version is most definitely a comedy, and a pretty damned funny one."

Fingers crossed, but this doesn't seem to leave much wiggle room on the tone...
