Johnny Depp: New 'Dark Shadows' Pic!

Check out this new pic of Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collins in the upcoming movie Dark Shadows!

Here’s the official synopsis for the Tim Burton-directed film: 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 (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 film also co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Moretz, Gulliver McGrath, Jackie Earle Haley, and Bella Heathcote.

Dark Shadows hits theaters Mary 11 – look out for the trailer, which debuts early next month!

    I love Johnny, Helena and Tim Burton BUT, I’m not going to lie…pretty tired of these great actors doing theatrical characters directed by Tim. I know it’s their thing, but they should change it up a little.

  • Ziggy

    Dang, he looks more like a troll than Barnabas Collins.

  • Tim

    Well Johnny Depp playing those kind of characters are mostly cool, but this is a total joke.
    They confused art with nonsense!

  • kami

    i love this type of movie and will totally see it.

  • Me

    It looks great…I can’t wait to see the trailer!!

  • cdee

    I love the Dark Shadows series…yes, I am old! I love Johnny Depp but this looks just like a cheesy Tim Burton flick. I was hoping it would be a serious attempt at the Dark Shadows story,

  • Clare

    This looks so silly, why would they do it like this?

    I’m a big fan of Dark Shadows, but Johnny Depp’s version of Barnabas Collins looks like a walking corpse – which I suppose he is considering he is a 200 year old vampire. Tim Burton seems to have made him a little too ghastly looking(wouldn’t you be suspicious of someone who looked like this?!), but I’m still willing to see the movie and see if it all somehow fits together. By the way fellow fans, this will be the 21st century version of Dark Shadow, so be prepared,

    Awwwww come on Johnny! Someone has got to tell him and Burton enough is enough
    He might as well add the dead crow on top of his head(see LoneRanger)

  • YAAAS HONEY!!!

    he looks the same in every movie these days o.O

  • Jo

    This is ridiculous. There’s a limit. Johnny Depp is one of the best actors we have today and although I loved him in Pirates, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands, he need to start doing different roles why can’t he do good movies while being himself like Brad and Leo?
