News: Dark Shadows by Tim Burton

Have we ever seen Johnny Depp as a vampire before? Personally, I don't remember a movie of off his where he is a fangy creature; but although I have seen most of his movie I don’t believe that I’ve seen them all so please excuse me if I’m wrong (and feel to correct me in the comments section below).

Whether we have seen it or not before, we will definitely be seen it this Mother’s Day weekend. Why? Because the movie hits theaters on Friday May 11, 2012; just 2 days before Mother’s Day.

On a quick glance what can we find? Well…
  • A Tim Burton movie? Check! 
  • Johnny Depp as the main actor as well as producer? Check and Check! 
  • Helena Bonham Carter as a supporter actress? Check! 
  • Music by Danny Elfman? Hell yeah!! Double Check! 
Aditional cast members include:
  • Eva Green
  • Michelle Pfeiffer
  • Chloë Grace Moretz
  • Gulliver McGrath
  • Christopher Lee
  • Alice Cooper (as himself)
So what is the movie about? Here is the synopsis as it appears on the movie’s Facebook Page:
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. 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, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David's new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.
