ooooo boy,I dunno.......
Based on that, I think I'll pass.
This is supposed to be funny, right?
At 0:38 it's revealed that the year is 1972.
At 1:05 the TV clip of Karen Carpenter singing Top of The World is from no earlier than November 1973.
It looks just awful, IMHO. I'll stick with memories of the old TV show(s) and movies.
Horrible. I'm so disappointed they went the sarcastic parody route with this.
Holy crap, its a Comedy???
I though Depp went on and on about being a fan, and getting what appealed to fans of the show.
Based on this, its about a step or two away from austin powers.
What a joke.
What were they thinking??
Wow, what the hell are they thinking???
I think all they are caring about is getting the 12-17 year old crowd, by the looks of it.....Its not even an amusing parody, its just Dumb....
I watched the clip, It struck me funny, I had a few LOL moments. However, I'll wait to see it at the $2 cinema.
Just give me HODS and NODS on DVD like originally planned. And.....the bonus(lost) footage! I'll be happy with that.
I watched the trailer and overall, it had me scratching my head. A comedy? Makes me wonder what the cameo roles of Frid, Parker, Selby and Scott were.......
Just watched it again, and WTF is with the music? Sure, period music, but DS was a GOTHIC HORROR SHOW.
Hell, who knows....might be able to score it cheap in the cutout bin when it flies to DVD.
A Tim Burton movie with Johnny Depp in white face with dark circles under his eyes. he is really stepping outside of his comfort zone........
You know how some artists/bands are brilliant for a short period (like CCR/John Fogerty) and then spend the rest of their careers doing the same thing, only without the original inspiration?
Ladies and Gentlemen - Tim Burton (and maybe Johnny Depp)
Ummm how is he doing the same thing here with no inspiration? If anything the fact that they are not doing the same thing is the problem here. I want a serious screwed up Gothic Tim Burton dark shadows not some lame Will Ferrell comedy.
I'm in... I have no history with the original, never saw a single episode. So, as an entirely new thing (to me), this looks good.
It has Eva Green so I'm sold. She's so beautiful...
That actually looks pretty entertaining.
It always seemed like a soap opera where I knew nothing of the previous plot, and nothing much happened. I couldn't work out if it was supposed to be 'camp' or spooky, or just cheap.
In the UK we had 'Adam Adamant', a similarly costumed cursed adventurer.
This was already posted with a better (larger) version in this thread (see post # 37).
Here is the direct link for the trailer.
Although a version of the song was first released on their 1971 A Song for You album. I can let that slide.
However: the trailer really pushes the hell out of Barry White's song "You’re the First, the Last, My Everything," which was released in late 1974. Way, way wrong for 1972.
Having said that... it's very funny in the trailer.
Burton has lost his edge it seems
i have hope for Frankenweenie
yes , the trailer looks totally stupid ,
i'll still check it out though
Me too. Never even heard of Dark Shadows before. But so what if this isn't faithful? That just means someone else can take a "faithful" crack at it.
So this guy is a vampire Austin Powers more or less?
Really? Did you watch the trailer? I am so tired of this whole "ironic" take on 60s-70s culture (apologies if you have no idea what that means). The original Dark Shadows had elements of irony in a time when irony was not yet the calling card of college freshmen. It doesn't need Tim Burton's 20 years too late lazy *** money grubbing adaptation.
For everyone who loved the real thing, watch Vampire Diaries on Netflix and re-experience why you loved Dark Shadows in the first place.
Disappointing. I was hoping that Burton was going to make this info a horror film. I won't be seeing this.
Another project reboot that Burton has done that I don't care for.
