We’ve seen trailers for Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows’ already. Heck! I can’t turn the television on without seeing three or four within a half hour. But, so far, the American trailers have focused on either the fish-out-of-water angle of Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) adapting to “modern” life in the 1970s or the sexual tension between Barnabas and his ex-lover, the witch Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green).
Sure… they’re a bit funny, in that quirky Tim Burton-esque sort of way. But the latest international trailer from China has an added scene that makes me think that the film might be a bit darker and even more humorous that we’ve been led to believe here in the states. I won’t tell you what happens in the scene but give it a look-see and let me know what you think in the comments below.
‘Dark Shadows’ stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz and Gulliver McGrath and will sink its teeth into theaters on May 11th.
