With The Avengers finally released in the UK (see our review HERE) the next big release is May 11th with fantasy comedy Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp.

Synopsis: An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.

Based on the television soap opera ‘Dark Shadows’, Tim Burton has decided to bring in his usual companions Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter (surprise, surprise) in what looks like a humorous retelling of the story. Check out the trailer below.

Not being a massive fan of Tim Burton means I’m not that excited for this flick, however there will no doubt be fans of the series and Burton/Depp who will flock to the theatres to see this. Eva Green (Casino Royale) and Michelle Pfeiffer also star.

Dark Shadows is released in the UK and US on May 11th, Australia will get to see the film a day earlier on the 10th.
