After another new TV spot for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows surfaced this morning, we now have a new image of Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, a two-hundred-year-old vampire, looking rather refined.
Along with Depp in the lead, the film stars Eva Green, Chloë Grace Moretz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jonny Lee Miller, Gulliver McGrath, Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcote, and Helena Bonham Carter.
“In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool,Englandto start a new life inAmerica. 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 (Jackie Earle Haley) and David’s new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.”
Dark Shadows will be released in the UK and US on 11th May, so only another month and a week until it hits the big screen. For all the rest of our coverage so far, just click right here. And as usual with the image below, you can click to enlarge.
