(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)
We’ve seen a quite a few images from Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows already over the past few months, but this latest new picture introduces Eva Green’s character as she comes face-to-face with her on-screen ex-lover Johnny Depp.
Based on the 1966-1971 classic gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows follows Barnabas Collins (Depp), a wealthy playboy who is transformed into a vampire and buried by a jilted lover, Angelique (Green). After being dug up 200 years later, Collins attempts to reintegrate with his descendants, led by Elizabeth (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Roger (Jonny Lee Miller), whilst he also crosses the path with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts, all of whom have secrets.
Also starring Helena Bonham Carter and Chloë Grace Moretz, the film is set to be released on 11th May.
