Here’s the official synopsis for Dark Shadows:
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. Matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has called upon live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena Bonham Carter), to help with her family troubles.

Also residing in the manor is Elizabeth’s ne’er-do-well brother, Roger Collins, (Jonny Lee Miller); her rebellious teenage daughter Carolyn Stoddard (Chloe Moretz); and Roger’s precocious 10-year-old son, David Collins (Gulliver McGrath). The mystery extends beyond the family, to caretaker Willie Loomis, played by Jackie Earle Haley, and David’s new nanny, Victoria Winters, played by Bella Heathcote.


Trailer is (hopefully) coming soon. :judge:

Eva Green is a very underrated actress. I've enjoyed her work since Kingdom of Heaven and Casino Royale and seeing her work with Burton is the 'dream-team' right there.

He was the only good thing in that awful A Nightmare on Elm Street thing. He also was awesome in Watchmen.

Yeah, he's a great actor. But he ain't enough to convince me to see this.

Talking of Jackie, his performance in A Nightmare On Elm Street was actually really solid. I was surprised, given it was a pretty difficult role to pull off, given that it's a remake and so on.

I also think that it's an underrated remake.

It was the film that introduced us all to Rooney Mara, followed by complete hattred for her, then she teamed up with Fincher and look at her now.

Yeah, look at her go. I remember how dreadful Elmstreet was, Jackie's performance ruined by terrible look. Rooney could scream though.

Back to Dark Shadows - trailer, now! :judge:
