We are less than two months away from the release of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, but with the exception of a few stills we've seen absolutely nothing from the film. It's easily one of the strangest marketing maneuvers that we've ever seen, as most blockbusters - and with Burton and Johnny Depp involved this counts as a blockbuster - release a teaser trailer at least six months from the day the movie actually hits theaters. That may finally be coming to an end, however. While we still don't know when a full trailer might hit the web, we now at least know that there is something in the works.

The Ellen DeGeneres talk show (via STYD) has posted a video previewing the show's upcoming segments and though short (less than five seconds to be exact) the clip gives us our first look at the characters of Dark Shadows in motion. Check it out!

Based on the popular 60s soap opera, Dark Shadows stars Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, a man who gets on the wrong side of a powerful witch (Eva Green) and is turned into a vampire. After being buried alive for two centuries, Barnabas emerges to the world of 1972 and finds that his grand estate and family have fallen on hard times and each member of the Collins clan holds a dark secret. The movie also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter, Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcote. For more from the title, head over to our Blend Film Database.
