While the multiplex explodes this weekend with superheroes emerging out of every cinematic orifice, next week the blockbuster movie leading the pack will be quite a different beast altogether. A vampire and a witch will battle it out in the 1970s in the high concept fantasy/horror/comedy hybrid “Dark Shadows.”
Reteaming Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, this big screen version of the cult TV show will be balancing a lot of disparate elements, but so far it looks like they are both bringing their A-game. EW has unveiled more new images for the film, giving us a closer look at all involved, but more importantly previewing the long expected by cameo by Alice Cooper. The rest are mostly further looks at Depp’s Barnabas Collins both looking fierce and at times out of sorts with the ’70s surroundings the newly revived vampire has found himself in.
Co-starring Eva Green, Chloe Moretz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bella Heathcote, Jonny Lee Miller and Jackie Earle Haley, “Dark Shadows” opens on May 11th. Take a look at the new pics and many more from the film below.
