Get Excited For Dark Shadows With These New Photos

Moviegoers have a lot to look forward to this May!

First out of the gate is The Avengers – a film that has mega Blockbuster potential and features an impressive ensemble of superheroes. Marvel has been pushing the flick pretty hard, though it’s not like the film ever needed a push. It was destined to be a hit from its inception.

Marvel isn’t the only studio that will have a winner on their hands in May though. Warner Bros. is releasing the latest Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration, Dark Shadows, just one week later.

Dark Shadows is based on the television show of the same name that was a cult classic back in the late 60s and early 70s. It revolves around the 17th century vampire Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) who was buried alive by a jealous witch only to be uncovered in the 1970s.

Obviously the world looks a bit different when he awakes and aside from dealing with fitting into a different century, he also returns to estate only to find it being run by his dysfunctional descendants, who are in need of his assistance.

It’s been a while since audiences have seen Burton and Depp team up for a film and if the trailer is any indication – we are in for a thrilling return. Judging from what we’ve seen so far, the is pure Burton/Depp and features everything that audiences would expect from the wacky duo.

There is still almost a month to go until the May 11th release date but until then you can check out the latest Depp-centered photos below.
