Dark Shadows Movie Trailer with Johnny Depp

The trailer was recently released for the film:

The TV show was a bit before my time, but the movie looks like it will be very funny with the “fish-out-of-water” approach.  Johnny Depp is such a versatile actor that he can handle any genre. I’ve been a fan of his since I can remember and that he is FINALLY portraying a vampire makes me very very happy! Talk about LONG overdue!

So do you guys thing this movie could do well? The Twilight films have been really dominating the market as of late (though they aren’t my personal preference), so I wonder if there will be room for this film to be successful.  Depp and Burton are billion dollar names in Hollywood, so I think it has a chance.  At least I predict it can perform better than Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter which I think completely misses the mark, though I think it could be entertaining:

Basically, one I will definitely see in the theatres. The other I can totally wait to watch on cable.

    Great trailers! I want to read the book for Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter before I see the movie. I remember Dark Shadow when it was on TV. I loved the show can’t wait for the movie.

    • I think ALVH does look like it will be pretty entertaining. I just wonder if there is a market for this film and what are the performance expectations of the studio. I really liked the Fright Night remake (though the original is still better), and that didn’t do very well at all. So it’s hard to say.

  2. I’m honestly not sure what to think of the Dark Shadows trailer. I dont recall the show and I’m trying to figure out whether to laugh or cringe. If it was anyone other than Johnny Depp I wouldn’t give it a second glance. But as is, I’ll be inclined to watch.

    • I hear that the show was a drama. But for the movie they seem to have intentionally taken the more campy approach, so who knows! The only Burton movie I DIDN’T really care for much was Alice in Wonderland, and of course that would be the movie to make a billion dollars, lol.
