Johnny Depp graces the cover of the May issue of Entertainment Weekly for his new film Dark Shadows. His face is caked in white make-up, so without knowing anything else, you'd know it's a Tim Burton film. Joking aside, I'm actually really excited about this one. All the trailers and clips we'vce seen so far have been incredibly funny. Granted it's still a remake, but it looks like it's got the old Burton style of humor we used to love. I'll always enjoy his stuff, but after Big Fish (my favorite of his films), I haven't been wowed by him.
There are close to 30 stills from the film, and there are a handful of photos from Burton on the set as well. Check out the pics and let us know if you think this is gonna bring you back to Burton or if it looks like just another remake from the Burton factory.
Dark Shadows hits theaters May 11th 2012.
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.
