The trailer is finally here for Tim Burton’s latest film, Dark Shadows. The film has a very familiar Burton feel to it with its dark and gothic setting with a comedic tone. It has a release date of May 11, 2012 and stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Eva Green.

If the film is as good as the trailer, I expect it to be very entertaining. For those who don’t know, this is a remake and based on a television show that ran from the 1960s to early 1970s. Expect a very strong performance from Johnny Depp with this role being one that is close to his heart. He has openly admitted his fascination with the show as a child along with his desire to portray the role of the film’s main character, Barnabus Collins. With that said, I think this film has a talented cast, a unique plot, and looks to be visually captivating. I hope that the film can live up to the expectations set by this trailer.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

  • Uh yea… not sure what to think. I kinda wanna see it.

    Not knowing a single thing about the show and being a huge hater on Burton for his lack of originality and doing the same tired crap over and over again, I’m surprised that I actually think this looks interesting.

    Yeah, me neither. Now, I’m kind of disappointed. I was hoping for a more serious version that would modernize the series and not be so campy and humorous. Not at all impressed.
