Yep! Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have teamed up yet again, adding another film to their already extensive list of joint endeavours. These best buddies just can’t get enough of eachother. But we can forgive their exclusive little clique, as judging by the first trailer for their latest flick Dark Shadows, they continue to prove that friends and business can be mixed.
Based on the cult TV Series of the same name, Dark Shadows is the latest gothic offering from team Burton and Depp (Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and Chocolate Factory, Sleepy Hollow…the list goes on)
Admittedly, some movie-goers have tired of the pair, arguing they should ‘cut the chord’ once and for all and move on. But aside from their slightly pedophilic versions of Alice and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, who really can blame them for their long-lasting man love? They continue to make freaky, off the wall films with visuals to die for. Judging by the trailer, Dark Shadows could be a nice little addition to their repertoire.
The film tells of the ancient vampire Baranbas Collins (Johnny Depp) who awakens to join his ancestors in the 1970s…yep: it’s gonna be interesting.
If you know Burton’s work well, brace yourself! This trailer is not what you will be expecting….
Dark Shadows is due for release May 10th 2012
