I love watching Johnny Depp make silly faces. Heck, I can watch that all day!
That's something I used to think. Now I know that I can watch it for. . .about forty minutes. For an hour and fifty-three, which is the running time of Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows,' I start to get real uncomfortable.
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.
What's weirder to you, the fact that they're throwing millions upon millions of dollars into a movie version of 'The Lone Ranger' or that they have one of America's leading men, Johnny Depp, playing a Native American? What's even weirder? The fact that he looks crazy great in the costume and makeup. Then again, in this picture he doesn't have a stuffed crow on top of his head.
Johnny Depp's biography includes being a three-time Oscar nominee, a devoted father, and an object of lust for countless women.
But now he may have to add one more bullet-point -- rock star -- after playing with Marilyn Manson at Wednesday night's Golden Gods Awards concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
When Rob Marshall signed on to do 'The Thin Man' with Johnny Depp, there were two major questions. One: "why?" And the second: "Who could play Nora Charles?" Johnny Depp has his bona fides from playing comedically tipsy after the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise, but what actress can do slightly soused these day? It looks like they're going to find out as their audition list is stacked with all of the current hot talented actresses.
