Dark Shadows

Last week, the trailer for Dark Shadows proved that Tim Burton still might have some fight left in him. With elements of both Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands (easily his best films) mixed with The Addams Family (another property Burton will tackle with stop-motion animation), the film looks like it could be a quirky, twisted comedy. As the film's release approaches, the marketing machine is in full swing, and now nine brand new characters posters have surfaced with a color scheme throwing back to the 60's and 70's. They're pretty bright and trippy, and the whole family gets their own poster. See all of the posters below!

Here's the nine character posters for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows from Empire:

Dark Shadows - Johnny Depp

Dark Shadows - Eva GreenDark Shadows - Jonny Lee Miller

Dark Shadows - Helena Bonham CarterDark Shadows - Jackie Earle Haley

Dark Shadows - Bella HeathcoteDark Shadows - Gully McGrath

Dark Shadows - Chloe MoretzDark Shadows - Michelle Pfeiffer

A gothic-horror tale centering on the life of 200 year old vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts as master of Collinwood Manor in Collinsport, Maine.

Dark Shadows is directed by imaginative filmmaker Tim Burton, of films including Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland.. He's directing from a script by author-turned-writer Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) based on the cult ABC TV series created by Dan Curtis. Warner Bros is bringing Dark Shadows to theaters everywhere starting May 11th this summer. So how does that look?

I was hoping that Burton would keep the film sombre but whatever. I don't care for the archaic character out of his element schtick. Especially when the element is a material, consumer driven setting. iPod jokes, cliche "what does this do/that mean?" moments. Oi!

I would be very surprised as well if there were iPods in the '70s.

Jonny Lee Miller and Jackie Earl Haley's expressions are priceless and I am sure/hope they steal the movie.

Originally I was like, "Here comes Tim Burton with another love letter to his mistress Johnny Depp that every 14 year-old girl is gonna see and it's maybe gonna be awful enough for me to finally put the bullet in the gun instead of just staring at it,." But then I saw the trailer and now, God help me, I'm totally in.
