FIRST LOOK: The Cast Of Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows"
Burton-movie regulars Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter star in the film, with Depp as Barnabas Collins and Bonham-Carter as the live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman.
Fans of “Dark Shadows” are probably relieved after seeing the official image, considering how outrageous the first shots of Depp as Barnabas were—he looked like an odd Willy Wonka-Mad Hatter hybrid. The new shot of the cast portrays Depp in a more acceptable way (for the macabre, at least). Burton’s Barnabas strongly resembles the original, portrayed by Jonathan Frid, which is sure to please purists.
The film’s other notable stars include Chloe Moretz, Eva Green, and Michelle Pfeiffer. “Dark Shadows” hits theatres May 11, 2012.
