The promotional ball is continuing to roll for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows. A few days after the trailer hit the internet, they have released nine character posters to further our excitement.
And they look pretty awesome. Very Burtonesque. And that’s not just because of the presence of his two favourite people – Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp.
The film revolves around an imprisoned vampire named Barnabas Collins. Set free from his coffin, he returns to his ancestral home, only to discover that is now the 1970s, and his extremely dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection. Not that the jealous witch, Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green) who imprisoned him in the first place, is going to make that easy.
The new posters come a day after a slightly tweaked version of the trailer surfaced. It was basically the exact same one, just with an additional gag involving Alice Cooper added to the end, for maximum funny power.
The posters certainly capture the fun mood the trailer set. Despite the fact it is a film about a vampire, it is certainly a more humorous approach than recent adaptations.
Check out Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Grace Moretz, Bella Heathcote, Jonny Lee Miller, Gully McGrath and Jackie Earle Haley in the posters below.
