A close-up of Johnny Depp in vampire makeup for Dark Shadows

3 years agoby:

We've gotten a few looks at Johnny Depp in his creepy makeup for DARK SHADOWS, but this is the best one yet. 

Looks a bit like the original Barnabas (Jonathan Frid) had a love child with Eddie Munster, doens't it?

The official synopsis- In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Depp) has the world at his feet--or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy...until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles. Also residing in the manor is Elizabeth's ne'er-do-well brother, Roger Collins, (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard (Chloe Moretz); and Roger's precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gulliver McGrath). The mystery extends beyond the family, to caretaker Willie Loomis, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David's new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.

DARK SHADOWS hits theaters on May 11th. Is Tim Burton's take on this incredibly long-running vampire soap opera enough to get you interested?

Depp should NEVER play a normal character...

For those complaining about Depp never playing a normal person, go watch The Tourist. See why its not a good idea.

Actually Jonathan Frid was 43 years old when he played Barnabus Colins, Johnny Depp is 48 approaching 49, so he's actually 5 years older than the original. What can I say, good genes are good genes.

Not liking something isn't necessarily 'hating'. Opinions are not black and white but a grey scale. But go on and call everyone a hater, but it will not make it true.

Lydia Deetz

Well, at least we know who'll be playing her if the long-rumoured Beetlejuice sequel gets off the ground.

I see a little Graf Orlok in there too

I'm willing to give it a shot, the original series was cheesy but fun. And Johnny Depp's a huge Dark Shadows fan so this is a passion project for him.

All of this red is coming from people who have never bothered to check out the original show, all of you should do yourselves a favor and Instant que it on Netflix. Dark Shadows was to gothic/vampire mythology what the Beatles were to rock & roll. It invented all of the tropes that inspired everything from Buffy to True Blood, not Twilight though as that series was written by a hack who didn't even bother to research her material. I cannot wait for this movie, and for all of the Burton haters I

I cannot wait for this movie, and for all of the Burton haters I offer this, post Mars Attacks every other Tim Burton movie has been great, you can wikipedia or imdb his filmography to back this up. Since Alice in Wonderland sucked this has a chance to be amazing. Not to mention the fact that this is a dream project for both Burton and Depp so I have faith that they did the best they could to make this something special. There would be no Beatlejuice, Edward Scissorhands or Burton's entire gothic style without Dark Shadows, if you give a chance you will really enjoy it. For me May 11th couldn't get here fast enough and I really want to see that first teaser/trailer.

i've seen it Drew, dont accuse all the haters of never seeing the show... Barnabas was MUCH OLDER... Johnny depp looks NOTHING like Barnabas Collins AT ALL (except for the hair... a little.)
i still plan to see it though but after Alice in Wonderland... i'm hedging my bets on this one.

::sigh:: Yes, it's nothing we've not seen before, but it still looks good. So stop hating. Everyone knows that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp go together like PB&J. So why fight it?

He could TOTALLY pass as a living dude...really. Doesn't looks 10 weeks dead AT ALL. Mr. Burton, what exactly were you thinking, "Willie Wonka as a Vampire could be good." Wrong answer Hanz.

Johnny Depp in a Tim Burton film, pale faced make-up and black eye shadow.

I'm sure I've seen this image or one just like it somewhere before...

No thank you

Ehhh.... I'm tired of Burton's schtick. I miss his PEE-WEE/BEETLEJUICE days. When it was interesting, quirky and creative. Not just "quirky".
