‘Strange Is Relative': 9 Character Posters Arrive For Dark Shadows

In the wake of the disco-tinged first trailer, Warner Bros. has released nine colorful and equally offbeat for Dark Shadows, Tim Burton’s long-awaited adaptation of the popular 1960s gothic soap opera.

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 (Johnny 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.

Written by Seth Grahame-Smith, Dark Shadows also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Moretz, Bella Heathcote, Thomas McDonell and Gulliver McGrath. It opens May 11.

    Fans may be divided on the trailer but they seem to universally agree about the song. Here is an original song about Barnabas Collins. I think it does capture the “spirit” of the original character. Do you agree?
