Helena Bonham Carter Looks A Bit Peakish On ‘Dark Shadows’ Still

Off the Singapore Facebook page comes a first look at Helena Bonham Carter (aka Tim Burton’s favorite gal) as “Dr. Julia Hoffman” in Tim Burton’s forthcoming Dark Shadows, the Burton-directed adaptation of the highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies. Check out the three other new images released yesterday.

“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.”

Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcote, Cloe Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter, Thomas McDonell, Gulliver McGrath and Alice Cooper also star in the gothic horror in theaters May 11. Dark Shadows
