Star-studded “Dark Shadows” trailer debuts on the web

PanARMENIAN.Net - So far, all the focus has been on a sinister looking Johnny Depp as a back-from-the-buried vampire in forthcoming Tim Burton film Dark Shadows. But a triler now shows the rest of the star-studded cast - looking a little less pale, but equally creepy, Daily Mail reported.

Helena Bonham Carter, who plays psychiatrist Dr Julia Hoffman in the film, sports a orange curled wig, bright blue eye shadow and frumpy dress in the video which shows the characters looking rather menacingly at the camera.

They include Chloe Moretz as her rebellious daughter Carolyn Stoddard and an unusually blonde Eva Green as witch Angelique Bouchard.

The U.S. director's interpretation of the U.S. sixties soap opera sees Depp's character Barnabas Collins as a rich and powerful playboy who breaks the heart of Angelique.

Played by Eva Green, Angelique is the one who turns Collins into a vampire and also buries him alive.

However, two centuries later, Collins is freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972.

He finds cousin, family matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Michelle Pfeiffer) has brought psychiatrist Hoffman to live at Collinwood to help with her with her family's various troubles, including her brother Roger's (Jonny Lee Miller) troubled son, David (Gulliver McGrath).

Bella Heathcote co-stars as nanny Victoria Winters, Ray Shirley is Mrs Johnson and Jackie Earle Haley as Willie Loomis.

The gothic-horror tale is Depp's eighth collaboration with his close friend, director Tim Burton and was filmed in the UK last year.
