At long last we have actual screen shots from Dark Shadows! Photos of vampire Johnny Depp have been revealed and the man is definitely one creepy and strange looking Barnaby Collins – but in the totally best of ways! Have a look for yourself:
Yeah, he’s definitely an odd looking vampire, but it totally works for this film. He also looks MUCH better than the on-set paparazzi photos that were leaked a few months back, those made him look overly pale and doll-like. But this photo is fantastic. So is the photo below of him and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Yay pictures! We are still waiting on the Dark Shadows trailer to be released, but at least we now have a few wonderful stills from the upcoming film to get us excited, and I’m totally excited. Director Tim Burton’s adaption of the cult TV series is due to open on May 11th, and that definitely feels like a much longer wait now.
In the Dark Shadows movie remake, Johnny Depp stars as the lead character of the vampire Barnabas Collins. Immigrating with his parents from London, England to America in 1752, Collins grows into a rich and powerful playboy enjoying everything life has to offer. Unfortunately for him, he makes the terrible mistake of breaking the heart of a witch (Eva Green). This witch curses him with a horrible fate by turning him into a vampire and burying him alive.
Centuries later, Barnabas is freed from his tomb and suddenly finds himself in a very different world. After being buried for 200 years, Collins attempts to reintegrate into society in 1972, restore the faded legacy of Colinwood Manor and deal with the remains of his totally insane and dysfunctional family.
In addition to Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, the film also stars Michelle Pfeiffer (as seen above), Johnny Lee Miller, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green and Chloe Moretz.
