Flashy, Colorful Dark Shadows Character Posters Arrive
I don't know about you, but in the hours leading up to the first trailer for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, which was released last week, I was under the impression that the film was going to be a creepy drama in the spirit of the 1960s soap opera on which the film is based. What was revealed, however, was that the film is actually more of a comedy, with Johnny Depp making jokes about Eva Green kissing his ass and pulling the backs off of televisions to reveal miniature singers. From here on out we can probably expect that tone to color the rest of the marketing and that apparently begins with a series of characters posters.
Hosted over at Empire, the new artwork has plenty of flashy coloring and each poster features the tagline "Strange is relative." You could almost apply that to Tim Burton's career, no? Check out three of the posters below and head over to Empire to see the rest.
Dark Shadows tells the story of Barnabas Collins (Depp), a man cursed by a witch (Green), turned into a vampire, and buried alive for two centuries. Emerging from his tomb in the 1970s, he finds that his estate has fallen into disrepair and that his family on hard times. As her works to restore the Collins name he discovers that the witch is still around and she's still not playing nice. The film co-stars Helena Bonham Carter, Chloe Moretz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jonny Lee Miller, Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcote. Due out on May 11th, you can read more about the title in our Blend Film Database.
