DARK_SHADOWS_movie_poster_johnny_deppTim Burton's wife Helena Bonham-Carter also comes along for the cinematic ride in the adaptation of the 70s television show. Johnny Depp goes emo as the vampire Barnabas in the gothic comedy starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Bond girl Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, and Chloe Moretz.  

The DARK SHADOWS trailer is a bit reminiscent of Burton's Beettlejuice with its vibrant colors, the wacky family dynamic, and the witty-dialogue that's sure to make this one a must see for any Burton/Depp fans. No need to describe the plot of the movie as the trailer preview lays out the easy premise and tone of the movie.

DARK SHADOWS is in theaters and IMAX on May 11.

More about DARK SHADOWS:
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.
