Suck it Addams Family! HA!
The first promotional photo for the highly anticipated film adaptationof Dark Shadows has released, giving a closer look at a 200-year-old vampire version of Johnny Depp and the rest of his scary family. This particular shot was actually staged very early on during production, as director Tim Burton (who else?!) explains:
“I remember seeing a group photograph of the cast of the original series. For me it captured the weird Dark Shadows vibe in a single image. I had a brief window of opportunity to have our cast present at the same time, the day before principle photography began. We decided to stage a similar picture instead of rehearsing, to see if we captured the Dark Shadows feeling.”
We think you've succeeded!
Just from this picture, we already know Johnny is going to make the perfect Barnabas Collins. Plus, if there was anyone to play Dr. Julia Hoffman it would be Helena Bonham Carter and we're getting great vibes from Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard.
Kind of ridiculously amazing. Such
