In theaters May 11, the MPAA has officially rated Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows PG-13 for “comic horror violence, sexual content, some drug use, language and smoking.”
In addition, Entertainment Weekly writer Anthony Breznican caught the finished version of the film and shared the following mini-review: “I’ve seen final cut of Dark Shadows. Tone similar to Burton and Depp’s Sleepy Hollow – lots of humor, but with menacing, atmospheric edge. In Dark Shadows, there’s an absurdist bent to the monster element. The creatures of the night are adrift in the self-obsessed world of 1970s. In typical Burton fashion, humans are scarier than the fiends. If u want Interview w the Vampire, that movie exists. This is a more wry take.”
Lastly, check out a handful of new imagery that’s been scouring the web. Thanks to Comic Book Movie for the heads up on the trio of news nuggets.
“The story focuses on Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), who was transformed into a vampire by a jilted lover (Eva Green’s witch Angelique) way back in the 1700s and buried. He’s just been dug up, and attempts to reintegrate with his descendants, led by Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elizabeth and Jonny Lee Miller’s Roger – despite the fact that Angelique is still around and still not in a forgiving mood.”
