Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' was slow on its roll out to theaters - it didn't have a trailer until a couple of weeks ago and for a summer release it's been curiously mute until recently. You'd think a Tim Burton/ Johnny Depp film would be hyped more after their 'Alice in Wonderland.' But now we have a featurette for the movie, which talks about vampire lore and a little bit about the original show.

Johnny Depp's upcoming film 'Dark Shadows' is based on the campy soap opera of the same name that ran from the late 1960s through the early 1970s. The actor is an avowed fan of the series, so the recent death of its star, Jonathan Frid, just weeks before the movie's opening hit Depp especially hard.
We're getting the summer kicked off right with some action packed blockbusters and a new film from visionary director Wes Anderson in May. If you're looking for superheroes, aliens, or just a simple, pleasant comedy, we've got you covered.
The past month we've been flooded with a vast array of teaser trailers for every other major summer movie, making us all bubble with anticipation over what we think looks to be the best of the upcoming season. Now the carrot is being dangled in front of our faces again with a couple of new television spots for 'Dark Shadows' along with 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'
With recent trailer debuts for Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie' and 'Dark Shadows,' it was only a matter of time before the spook master graced us with more delightful imagery from the latter, which releases in May.
Sorry for the obvious pun, but Tim Burton fans wondering about his mysterious 'Dark Shadows' remake have been kept in the shadows regarding what they can expect from his latest collaboration with Johnny Depp. The good news is that we now have a full 'Shadows' trailer to pore over. The bad news? It only confuses us even more.
