Johnny and Michelle in New Dark Shadows Pic


I always thought Johnny Depp looked much younger than his age (the guy is almost 50, after all), but damn, he looks like he’s in his early 20s in this new image from Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” reboot. In the film, based on the TV show of the same name, Depp plays Barnabas Collins, a vampire who longs for his true love. Michelle Pfeiffer plays Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the matriarch of the Collins’ clan.

I’m still not sure if this movie is supposed to be some kind of vampire soap opera or a supernatural/horror movie with, you know, fighting monsters and the like. Tim Burton doesn’t actually do action movies, so I reckon it’ll probably be somewhere between the two.

Also starring Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Christopher Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Thomas McDonell, and Ray Shirley.

The vamps rise again May 11, 2012.

    Definitely looks better than that first pic. He’s almost unrecognizeable. Looks more like Joaquin Phoenix.

    That’s Depp!?

    I’m reopening my theory that time travel has existed for the past decade and Hollywood has exclusive control over the machine.

    Hmmm.. there’s something going on with that picture. They must have done some serious make up work (I mean on top of the obvious make-up) or cgi with Depps face. He doesn’t even look like himself.
