Johnny Depp might be wearing a little too much make-up to play Barnabas Collins in Dark Shadows

09.13.2011

Okay, so I know that on stage you have to cake on the make-up a bit so everyone in the house can see it but I'm not understanding what's going on here.

Johnny Depp is no stranger to the white make-up when it comes to Tim Burton films but does Barnabas Collins need this much for DARK SHADOWS? Reminds me of a bad vampire costume for a kid. Again, maybe I'm just misunderstanding the intent. On the arm of Depp is Bella Heathcote who is playing Victoria Winters.

I'm still excited to see what Tim Burton does with the world of DARK SHADOWS. But an official photo of the character some time in the near future might be nice.

With the set photos, I've also included one of the original Barnabas Collins, Jonathan Frid.

Hrm

Maybe the fact they are filming in daylight is a hint? Just a guess, but maybe this somehow allows him to go out & about in the sunlight somehow.

Out in the sun...

Maybe he is wearing a lot of sunscreen? I doubt he will wear this the entire movie.

I'm just kind of sick of Depp playing these wacky, off the wall characters I can no longer relate to. Throw us another Donnie Brasco every now and then Johnny.

It's probably that zinc oxide sunscreen - since he's going out in broad daylight he'd need something to block %100 of the UV rays. That my guess - or that Burton is just making another crappy film.

I'm going with the sunscreen comment by RooJay. Picture might be a little misleading so will have to wait to see.

I'm guessing this will be in black and white, which is why the makeup is extreme! Also it'll be a tribute to 60's campness!

That's clearly sunscreen. Real vampires don't sparkle in sunlight, they die.

I know it's only a couple of pictures, and I don't mean to complain BUT, I mean, I used to love Tim Burton, I used to like Johnny Depp. I used to think that having both of them involved in the same movie was great! BUT, there is such a thing as having too much of a good thing.
At this point, and I don't think it's only me, but it seems like every time these two do something now it's more of the same.
Still, I hope this turns out good!!

He's pale in every Burton movie

From the top of my head he's pale in all of the following Burton films:
Edward Scissorhands
Sleepy Hollow
Sweeny Todd
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Alice in Wonderland
And even Ed Wood (as it was B&W)and the Corpse Bride...
and now...this.

This does not look good

I hate to say it but it does seem to coincide with what I've read elsewhere about the script being really "funny."
Is this a comedy?
If so, it'll go over like Farrel's Land of the Lost.
However, I have seen well lit pre production photos of Jim Cameron's aliens, and they actually have metallic baby blue and pink highlights painted on them. The lighting though, doesn't show it.
So the saving grace may be that it's makeup meant for a special kind of lighting or filter.
Though I wouldn't bet

It could also be one of the goofy dream sequences that litter the soap opera.

Really wish I could be excited for this movie. Except the realization that it's another Tim Burton adaptation keeps bringing me back to reality. Hope I'm wrong though.

Okay, compared to the pic of the original Barnabas Collins, Johnny actually looks interesting. I am dumbfounded as to how so many people would doubt Tim Burton, or Johnny Depp for that matter. They've both made consistently above average movies. Classics in many, many instances. So cut em some slack til we see what it's really all about.

Oh no, that hat couldn't be further from Barnabus Collins. Also, Barnabus is a legit vampire who cannot be out during the day, so I hope this is either a flashback, a dream sequence or they're tackling the Adam storyline where Barnabus gave all his cool vampire powers to a Frakensteins monster made from spare body parts (true story).

If you ever wondered what Burton's Joker would look like if Depp was cast instead of Nicholson, you pretty much have your answer.

I think Depp and Burton might be out of ideas. All their character collaborations seem to be over the top and flamboyant.
