Johnny Depp in Gothic Comedy ‘Dark Shadows’


Need a laugh? Well I have good news for you, Tim Burton’s new film DARK SHADOWS starring Johnny Depp will be out in theaters on May 11th! Dark Shadows is based on the television series created by Dan Curtis and is also starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Eva Green, Chloe Moretz, Bella Heathcote and Gulliver McGrath. I’m looking forward to this film because Johnny Depp never disappoints!

The movie starts off in the year of 1752 when Joshua and Naomi Collins set sail from Liverpool, England with their young son Barnabas to start a new life in America. Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) grows to become a rich, powerful playboy… until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green) – who happens to be a witch. The heartbroken Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death by turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Two centuries later, Barnabas is freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find a very dysfunctional Collins family and his once-grand estate in ruins.
