Two new videos have been released yesterday reminding us that the summer movie season is just beginning. One deals with the end of a 200 year exile of a vampire and the other shows the beginning of a young princess’.
This is the 6th TV spot for the Johnny Depp vampire movie that has movie goers on the fence as to whether they should spend their hard earned money to see. While the trailers and TV spots have emphasized more on the campy humor of the film, the clips that were recently released were more on the dark side hoping to remind the audience of the soap opera the film was based upon.
In this TV spot, Barnabas Collins’ history is retold and some of Johnny Depp’s best scenes are included:
‘Dark Shadows’ TV Clip #6:
‘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 open in theaters on May 11th.
‘Snow White and the Huntsman’
What seems to be a nod to the classic Disney film, this clip from ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ called ‘Dark Forest’ seems to take a the animated scene where the Huntsman tells Snow in the Disney version to run and hide in the woods and bring that version to life. The creepiness in ‘SWATH’ and the chilling voice over of ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ spoken during Kristen Stewart as she travels in the woods reminds us that this is not the Snow White that you grew up with.
Thanks to Bleeding Cool we have the clips from both movies so you can compare yourself:
