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.
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.'
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.
