After months of teasing photos of Johnny Depp in pale white makeup and 18th century costumes, the first trailer for Dark Shadows, directed by Tim Burton, has been released.
Depp plays Barnabas Collins who is turned into a vampire by a witch (Eva Green) in the 18th century. He is buried for years and is awakened in 1972. His ’70s relatives (Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller, and Helena Bonham Carter as the family’s psychiatrist) greet him as he suffers from culture shock.
This film marks Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s eighth project together, following Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland.–Erin Fitzsimmons
The film hits theaters on May 11.
