We’re all patiently waiting for the trailer for Dark Shadows, the Tim Burton-directed adaptation of the highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.
Or maybe not so patiently. After all, the film is less than 2 months away and we have yet to see any footage. That changes on Thursday, when the full trailer premieres on “The Ellen Show”. Of course, it could change today if you choose to watch the on-air teaser for the trailer.
“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.
You can see it below. But I’m warning you, it’s like 4 seconds long – and sandwiched between 11 seconds of other stuff.
