‘Mad Men’ Season 5 leaves behind its ninth episode of the year, as Don tries to get back in the game while Betty reveals a distressing secret to Sally, and Roger enlists the estranged Jane in helping him land a new account.
Last week’s ‘Mad Men’ episode “Lady Lazarus” saw Pete falling for a new woman in his friend's bitter wife Beth (Alexis Bledel) only to be cruelly cast aside, while Megan came clean about her desire to return to acting and Don dropped $250,000 (or rather Matthew Weiner did) to listen to The Beatles, so what will the latest episode bring? Much-needed Fat Betty!
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Mad Men’ episode nine “Dark Shadows!”
Poor Barnabas Collins never stood a chance. Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' found itself clobbered to death over the weekend courtesy of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, who rode a perfect cocktail of hype and stellar word-of-mouth to an unprecedented second weekend. It's no longer a question of whether or not 'The Avengers' will be one of the biggest movies of all time, mainly because it already is one of the biggest movies of all time: after only nineteen days, it's crossed the $1 billion mark. The question we should be pondering now is whether or not it will become the biggest movie of all time.
Oddly enough, we have two comedies heading to theaters in the next few weeks that try to wring laughs by dropping characters into shockingly different time frames. In Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows,’ Johnny Depp plays an 18th-c

'The Avengers' had the Imax field all to itself this weekend. It was on 275 Digital Imax screens and made $15.3 Million there, which would figure out to $55.6 Thousand per screen (and that's nearly eight thousand above the total per screen average). It also did $207 Million over the weekend, which meant exhibitors were none too happy to lose any of these screens to 'Dark Shadows,' which they already had booked. But a deal's been made to share screens.
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.
