Summer Movie Preview: Dark Shadows

While The Avengers seems poised to continue ruling the box office roost (bringing in over $200 million in its first 3 days), this weekend brings us a different flavor of movie from one of the truly directors out there: Tim Burton.

Burton’s career has taken an interesting path – he started making wildly original movies, then started to mix in his interpretations of classics: Alice in Wonderland, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and even Sleepy Hollow. This time, he’s adapting Dark Shadows, the classic horror soap opera from the early 70s, this time starring Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collin – enjoy!
